just curious how many of those manufacturing companies that you are talking about were in the US and have moved to another country? bet they are still owned by people in the US that are cashing out big time.

No that's where it BEGAN to some extent. Where it LIES is in you and the decisions YOU can choose to make. You can't blame your parents once you grow up.

Yes, the same people that helped sell you that bill of goods you've bought and are now selling you on imports.

Are you saying we have to change THEM, or else YOU won't change? It's not going to happen -- you can't change them. But if people buy American, they will invest and build in America because that's how they'll make money.

If you only realized that collectively, we have the power to force the revitalization of American industry the same way we destroyed it: with our buying decisions.

You're still trying to blame someone else and give yourself an "out" for making bad decisions based on a very limited self-interest. It keeps coming back to what YOU do (and it's the collective "you" -- all of you).

lol! I only win if American industry rises again -- in fact, YOU only win if that's so.

Start to see that the arguments you used here were TAUGHT to you -- indirectly in some cases, but none the less communicated. Begin to really THINK about things, and mold yourself in ways which bring forth character that BUILDS us, rather than weakens us.

It's the only thing that will really make a difference: individual American's of good character, who think and act based on what's best for ALL of us.

I'm done too, for now. Please really think about this stuff.
