One in three thousand people have had their jobs "offshored", the rest of the hundreds of millions working owe their success to free enterprise.

Why don't you quit the histrionics and try posting some actual numbers?

And if offshoring is such a damned evil thing, then we should shut down all those Toyota and Honda plants here...right?

One more thing...hard for you to prove the negative financial aspects of our economic system in light of the constantly rising wages, and industrial productivity these past two hundred plus years.

More work outsourced to US than away from it

If it is, in fact, that small a number then eliminating free trade won't have much effect on our economy, now, will it?

You want numbers? You got it!

You can get lots of numbers here

They show an increasing trade deficit for combined goods and services. Note that your chart takes one small area and generalizes based on that subcategory. Such tactics smack of histrionics.

We need to encourage domestic companies to open those factories instead of depending on foreign compaines to do so.

No, most of that two hundred years of growth was enjoyed with strong protections for domestic producers. Only recently has "free traitin" come into vogue.
