Plus the Ford profits stay in the States. The other automakers profits leave the country. And not all jobs connected with Ford are union.
Honestly I would rather the profits left the country. If you want to starve the beast, you have to stop it from feeding, and corporate profits are a substantial part of it.
I’m likely to start looking at divesting of U.S. companies in general. The citizens of the country voted against a recovery, so we might as well give them what they want.
Ford Foundation. This foundation consistently supports causes Henry Ford would never have supported and has become one of the largest donors to Tides, giving them millions of dollars since 1997. Not only that, but the Ford Motor company itself also gives to Tides.
With the Tides Foundation and Tides Center now the largest funder of the left in America today, Drummond Pike may be one of the most powerful men in America. This scruffy, California-based, anti-war activist, founded the Tides Foundation in 1976 and has managed to raise millions of dollars from Americas leading foundations. What he promises them is anonymity since they are able to claim they are simply contributing to a foundation self described as being committed to a society based on fairness, equal justice and equally shared economic opportunities That sounds fairly innocuous.
The contributors therefore have some deniability about how their money is used but Pike then directs this money to a massive network of hard-left groups. Indeed, Pike even states, Anonymity is very important to most of the people we work with.
