"What is going on up in Wisconsin is nothing compared to what globalism is doing to U.S. workers."
The other day, Barack Obama summoned a group of business and labor leaders to the White House and "challenged" them to come up with some great ideas for creating more jobs inside the United States. Meanwhile, Barack Obama is pushing hard for Congress to approve the new free trade agreement with South Korea. This is yet another bad "free trade agreement" in a long string of bad "free trade agreements" that are absolutely gutting the U.S. economy. The truth is that the United States has become a nation which is constantly consuming more while at the same time producing less and less. The gap between the wealth that this nation produces and the wealth that this nation consumes is becoming absolutely astronomical. But instead of fighting for changes that would keep American jobs in America, Barack Obama has allied himself with the multinational corporations that are making huge profits by outsourcing and offshoring our middle class jobs as part of the new one world economy. Our politicians can give speeches until they are blue in the face about how "wonderful" globalism is, but the truth is that it is taking millions of our jobs away and it is ripping the U.S. middle class to shreds.
For a moment, imagine you go to the store and you see two products. They are roughly equivalent, although one may be a little better than the other. One product costs ten times as much, you are going to have to pay a bunch of extra taxes and fees to purchase it and you are going to have to fill out a ton of paperwork in order to buy it. The other product is dirt cheap and all you have to do is take it up to the register.
So which one are you going to buy?
That is the situation that so many of our multinational corporations are facing today. In the new one world economy, they can choose to hire incredibly expensive American workers, or they can go to the other side of the world and legally hire very motivated workers that will gladly work for slave labor wages.
Do you see why so many jobs are leaving America?
American workers were never told that all of these "free trade agreements" would mean that they would be merged into a global labor pool where they would directly compete for jobs with slave labor on the other side of the world.
But that is exactly what is happening and it is destroying the U.S. middle class.
Talk about the biggest union busting plan of them all!
What is going on up in Wisconsin is nothing compared to what globalism is doing to U.S. workers.
And yet idiot American workers keep voting these same chumps back into office again and again and again.
