“Due to the global economy, it's cheaper to source may products from China, and... grow the company and provide more jobs.”
You use nice words like “competition”. However, what you are advocating is that if we all made slave wages both China and the U.S will create more
jobs. Basically, its divide and conquer. Split the world’s producers ( workers, both creative and manual) , have them “compete” against each
other ( by asking for less wages) and let those that bet ( Wall Street etc) on their productivity have all the profits.
Now, I am not saying “workers of the world unite” or anything like that. All I am advocating is a return to the Capitalism of the 50s and 60s
before NAFTA and deregulation ( of Wall Street etc) caused our current depression.
Romney represents the new Capitalism. Obama the old (en.wikipedia.org...
etc ). Obviously, Obama is also a puppet of Wall
Street. However, he is obviously the lesser of two evils.
“If you look at the salaries of corporate big-wigs... yes, they are huge compared to the average Joe. But if you compare those with the company's
revenues, profits, and overall employee salary base, they are like ice cubes in the Arctic Ocean. Let them have their shiny toys and move on.”
Nope. CEO compensation has skyrocketed even for those companies that fail. Enormous wealth is now being produced by raiding employee pension funds
I suppose that you will claim that those top 400 individuals did more work or were more innovative then half of all Americans combined.
Lets do the math! The U.S population is 311,591,917 divide that by 400= 778979, divide that by 2 ( half) = 389489. So you are saying that one ( yes
one individual) in that group of 400 contributes 389,489 times more to the wealth of our country then the average citizen!!!!!!
