It goes along with his lies about the jeep plant, supposedly moving U.S. jobs to China. He has got employees calling their employer asking what is
going on. Turns out they are expanding in China, but adding jobs here in the states and not sending them overseas. It is amazing that a Mormon can get
up there in public and lie so consistently.
I have no bone to pick with either Obama or Romney. I believe both political organizations are dishonest and I believe that both want the key to the
hen house. At my age, of near ninety, and having voted independent since Truman, I have seen nothing to convince me that either party will ever bring
fairness to this Republic.
I understand your passion and hope because at one time I also had that same passion and hope but I think most people look at the same thing
differently among themselves. Romney nor the Romney group stated that US jobs were being moved from one place to another. What he did say was that
the Jeep division was sold to the Italians who in turn were going to farm the work out to China. In essence that will cut some American jobs. That
is being considered but has not happened as yet. In other words the jobs were not to be moved but were to be created in China. Now you can spin this
any way you care to spin it but it is not the complete truth the way that you stated it.
Also you are not totally honest even with yourself. Some of Obama's green jobs have have also been in foreign countries with very little (or no)
publicity. Ford and Chrysler both have foreign manufactures as well as parts being manufactured by assortment of foreign nations. It is a complex
world that we live in and one size shoe is never going to fit every foot.
As a small business owner (some years back) I had my product manufactured in Japan. The reason for this was that I could not find American
manufactures to meet my standards. I tried almost every major machine co in the Midwest and finally gave up trying. I was even willing to pay the
forty percent increase in manufacturing costs simply to bring my product home. You might wonder why I was in Japan in the first place. The answer to
that was that I had purchased the Co while it was based in Japan.
I have now retired and my son has control of the firm. He is also trying to bring the firm home but has the same problems that I had some years ago.
The very same problems exist today as have existed years ago for small businesses. Nothing has really changed and in fact have grown worse for the
mom and pop businesses. The country has lost much of its labor skill such as machine work. We are no longer leaders in science and math and are
ranked as 25th in the world. Does that look to you as though any of our leaders are really on top of this thing?
We have become a nation of outsourcing as well as a drugged and crime ridden society. Don't simply look at a political organization to feed and cloth
you because after you are old, no one really cares about you anymore. Your best insurance in life is to build your own life with building your brain.
Your mind is your future and your insurance policy. After Obama and Romney, then what? What will you do then? They will never make you wealthy nor
are they interested in making you wealthy. They wind up with the money and you will go on and on year after year in your pretend world.
Wish you the best in life.
