I don’t think Democrats know what they are really saying.

Is this not Drudge worthy?

And how about Varney and Company on the Fox Business?

Yes however, the solution is NOT to send jobs to China.

Bring back US jobs now.

Then we can work on the rest. In that order.

This is the core principle of Communism. Of course they’d say this. In the Soviet Union, there was actually a law against it, it was called ‘profiteering’. You could get hard time if you intentionally made a profit on a business deal.

I have said it time and time again on FR...,we CANNOT CO-EXIST with liberals. They either destroy us or we destroy them.

No, I am saying that they don’t understand the function of profit in an economy.

They think they that wealth and government taxation are identical in nature and that and redistribute it through wisdom and will achieve superior results.

This is 2012. This is the year the Democrat party officially signed on to all the tenets of the former Soviet Union: Profit should be illegal, and mention of God and religion should be banned, by the State.

You had to know it would happen.

Their problem is that they need us (our money), but we don’t need them for much of anything.

Both comic and tragic all at the same time. The dumbing down of our educational system by Marxists has succeeded.

Not true. The Democrat elites desire power. With power they can steal someone else's wealth. They use collectivist rhetoric to appeal to some very stupid lazy people to form a big mob. They use mob tactics to achieve their goals. Their is nothing in their beliefs to support a rational system of economics and personal freedom. The rights granted are those that appeal to their most ardent followers. To sum it up, they thrive on power and theft. That's the modern Democrat.

Unfortunately, organization by a small mob carries them further in politics than that of middle America. Middle America is too interested in pursuing self interest. They are by definition divided and conquered. Middle America needs to awaken, read history, and get its act together. Middle America needs to organize. Start with the Tea Party.

Profit is the only reason for a business to exist!!!!

When the 1986 “tax simplification act” took effect and consequently brought the illegal aliens into commercial construction I could no longer operate legally and make a profit and fired all the employees and closed a 57 year old business!!!

It’s government incentives that drives jobs offshore. With wage rates driven by local competition, mandates for insurances and health coverages, and environmental regulations, it’s too easy to just hire workers at slave wages and hours, and foul another country’s environment with impunity. Nothing is coming back until the differential is closed.

After the Civil War ended, newly freed former slaves traveled north looking for employment. They traded on the one advantage they had - their pay. They were willing to supply manual labor at significant discount to the prevailing wages. So the local democrats started instituting labor unions that would exclude blacks from membership while increasing the minimum lawful wage.

Low priced labor is always a problem when it inundates settled communities.

Reminds me of the interviews in which Obama supporters agreed with all of McCain’s positions, including choosing Sarah Palin as VP, if they were represented as Obama’s.

Those business that move to China, simply won’t exist in the US if they stay. They be bankrupt very quickly because of the high cost of doing business and the high price they have to charge

Idiocy from the Left as usual. They do understand that businesses wouldn’t exist without profits, that there would be no jobs without profits, and that U.S. (or any country for that matter) would fail to exist without profits, right? This is what you get when you spare the rod, spoil the child, then send him off to liberal colleges. They end up euthanizing their own mothers and fathers to save the government a dime out of their liberal allegiance to The One and sell their souls to the devil because they are easily influenced and have no moral absolutes to follow. We have become a heathen nation. Maybe we deserve to be destroyed to teach the idiots a lesson they will never forget.

Jobs were not sent to China and elsewhere.

The subject of the thread is profits and therefore profitability. If there is no profit there is no need for economic activity. Economic activity, including marginal manufacturing ceased when costs exceed the value paid by customers.

For many manufacturing activities, America priced its self out of the market. We maintain a strong manufacturing base for al kinds of stuff for which we are the low cost and often only source producers. American exports support our present economy.

I know what you mean but.........

I refuse to condemn my son and his future family to a life of communism. We absolutely have to take this country back from these self destructive Marxists. Surrender and retreat is not an option. I would rather see this country split into two countries,than surrender to such evil. We have almost reached that very tipping point it would seem.

We must continue to pray for our country. I still believe there are more of us than them...but that will not last much longer at the rate we are going.

The government just confiscates all profit and cuts out the middle man. No need for more tax revenue./s

That is their logic. Forget about the stockholders, many of whom are pension and mutucal funds.

Hitler felt the same way

13. We demand the nationalization of all businesses which have been formed into corporations (trusts).

14. We demand profit-sharing in large industrial enterprises.

“We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” —Adolf Hitler
