There aren't enough high paying jobs for the masses,


You can thank Sander and his party for that.

Business leaves this country because it's cheaper to go elsewhere.

Left wingers have absolutely no concept of that word competition.

That creates jobs, that create wealth. That create wait for TAX REVENUE for the state.

Sanders wins watch how much bigger unemployment gets.


So what are you saying?

Are you saying that Democrats are responsible for the fact that wages are lower in 2nd & 3rd world countries?

Are you saying that Democrats are responsible for the lack of environmental standards and worker health & safety protections in 2nd & 3rd world countries?

Democrats didn't drive corporations overseas and neither did unions or taxes!

GREED is what drove those corporations to move overseas and both the establishment GOP & DNC are to blame for not penalizing them in a manner equivalent to offset the difference between the two economies and standards of living.

American workers will never be able to compete with workers in developing nations and corporations have always known this.

Problem was, if they moved their operations overseas, they couldn't be sure that there products wouldn't be taxed to the point that the move wasn't worth it.

So they use their money to lobby for "Free" trade agreements and "Permanent Most Favored Trading Status" designations to insure that their goods will have unfettered access to the American markets without being taxed.

Once they have the necessary guarantees in place, they make their move.

Then, as if pitting one economy against another in a mad race to the bottom isn't enough, they hide their profits in offshore accounts to avoid paying any tax at all!

And you wonder why we're broke!

This whole fiasco is driven by GREED and enabled by establishment politicians from both parties who are beholden to corporate special interests and their campaign donations.

Any FAIR trade deal with countries that have economies and standards different than our own, has to be one where corporations are forced to manufacture their products in the same country they're to be sold in.

This is the only way for each country to protect their own economies & standards.

Otherwise, GREED will continue to rule the day until the mad race to the bottom is over and there's nothing left for them to take.

Not from us or the environment!

Yep they TRULY are.


Reasons for Outsourcing in a Manufacturing Industry

Read it or don't.

The Left just loves cutting their own throat, and blame some rich guy, and business.



Labor remains one of the biggest costs of any manufacturing company.


But hey IGNORE IT please.

Sanders/Left wingers are the 'saviors' of the Republic!

I have also loved seeing so many people( SAnders supporters) openly lobby for this countries first 'Jewish' Potus.



Er … does Ifill not realize that Sanders was the first Jewish-American to win a major-party primary contest, as Sanders did in New Hampshire on Tuesday?


Incredible

Some of us on here are very emotional on our stance in politics. Are you guys/ladies like that when out with friends or family? Are you the annoying one "praising" Trumps balls or "Pushing" Bernies agenda?

I have some friends who are like that but they can only say 7 things and there is no depth...on either side.

Out of curiosity, what is it you want to be done with Corporations to keep them from going overseas? Deregulate them entirely?

I've seen all the stuff you're against with businesses, but is there a way you can think of that both corporate and private america would be better off? Or do we have to pick one or the other?

Well deregulation is a classical tenant of what LIBERALISM is, and a FREE market.

Back to the corporationphobia, and richaphobia.

I'm not asking for catchphrases and soundbytes, how will letting corporations run unregulated and free to do whatever they want increase the standard of living in this country? Do you not think corporate interference in politics and the lawmaking process is a concern? You've stated plainly what you're against, i'm asking what you're for.

The government needs to back out. They are in or are part of almost every aspect of your life now. Business and Government are one in the same. It used to be that the corporations had more say and not it is the government that does. In my opinion the government now buys those that support them with cuts..and breaks...and subsidies. GM got bailed out. How about the guy who loses his convenience store after 25 years in a poor area of town. Does he not deserve some help?

The hard answer is neither of them do. Our country used to be founded on not just hard work but 'reward' for hard work. That is not there. Now the government is there to help you. We have people in the DNC MSM who want to tell the world that it is all sunshine and rainbows but cold hard facts are it is not. It will be paid for somehow let's just pass it. The GOP MSM wants you to think that you have to be a bible thumping, pro-life gun toting whacko to support some candidates. There is fringe on both sides.

Smaller government is needed. Less spending is needed.

(Bernie does not want that. He wants to add taxes that would add administration and more spending. How much in federal money would be used to investigate offshore accounts? My guess is a fart load...)

Problem is the last Republican grew the government by 53 percent. The largest in the last 7 presidents. So you can't trust what they say.

My opinion is Sanders and Congress will not agree causing less legislation tobpass than a Republican and a Republican Congress where you get fleeced when they backtrack on everything they say.

The best thing that can happen is the president and Congress disagree. Then things don't get passed.

But I am not worried about the last republican. I am not even worried about the current POTUS anymore. I just want someone for all the people not just some of the people.

Well the "government" will and did and has ranted about lead for decades.....regulated ect.....but wouldn't dig up its own water pipes. Rather just dumped in more yummy chemicals to "seal" the lead pipes. And like a lot of government chemicals they turn out to be good for you as well building strong bones and teeth.

So, based on your title, I will stick by my position of voting for "none of the above."

You seriously want me to vote a socialist into the highest position in the land? Sickos.
