I find it fascinating how many American capitalist companies love doing business with a quasi communist country.

I wonder why both the DNC and GOP always give us bigger gov't and less personal freedoms?

If you ran a business why wouldnt you want the Chinese people to use your product?
In a free market the availability of goods and services creates econimic incentive.

Just like they have Fords & MC Donalds in China why should Musk also not allow Tesla to be there too?

We're building a factory there because they steal everything anyway we figured we might as well sell to them. Strange world we live in. We will not be selling the product we make there here. Sold only in China.

Its a global economy.

If the Chinese stop doing business with the USA and adopt your attitude our country's economy would collapse. They manufacture most all our stuff for cheap. The Chinese are in every part of our economy from food to plastic. We drop buisness with them and we cease to function as a country.

Again I don't disagree with that. Its the same if we stopped illegals from coming into our country. Both are ingrained into our economy.

I just find it funny how all parties have no problem exploiting quasi communism.

On the Left you have corporations acting like they are champions of people, but have no problem exploiting Chinese slave labor in making their products.

On the right you champions of small gov't and capitalism, but have no problem exploiting big gov't and quasi communism.

Do you think USA companies should have all USA products made in the USA?

That would take some serious socialism to accomplish.

NO and it would be impossible too. However, perhaps we shouldn't be dealing with our boogie man with a straight face.

I think Trump wanted to get USA business to come back home but that fell pretty flat.

Its kinda sad the manufacturing of basic goods has mostly been outsourced.

Just imagine if all the advanced technology we used was made in the USA.

Dont get me wrong I think its a possibility but only if companies stop caring about money and cost, which is highly improbable.
