The last five are currently being suppressed by Alinskyite politics. But they are not gone. If you bring them back (kicking out the EPA would be a good start) you will regain and retain industries.
And America now has the enormous bonus of 'Eagle Diesel'. That is beginning to make a huge difference. All you guys need to do to flourish is to remove the soft dead hand of Government intervention.
Remove that dead hand. Don't inject it with growth hormone. Don't insist on growing Government intervention by inflicting tariffs on yourselves.
It's good that you mention the American consumers: they will simply not be able to regenerate the economy while their buying power is being crushed by the voracious demands of Government.
The US citizenry need a sharply reduced tax and regulatory burden, just as much as US corporations do. The extreme & arbitrary burden of Obamacare is going to wipe out consumer purchases (just as much it's going to impair capital relocation).
What's crushing their buying power is unemployment. It's almost at 25% according to shadowstats.com.
The unemployment is caused by cheap imports. And there is no end in site to the cheap imports. China has at least 200 million more workers earning less than $1.50 a day that would love to come in from fields to a manufacturing job just as soon as China can import the businesses from the west.
Don't believe the the weekly propaganda put out about China about how they are either about to go bust, banking crisis, wages are rising, etc. It's just propaganda to try to keep us from reacting to their predatory trade tactics.
