The issue I am trying to point out to one globalist freeper, is that we are in this position because the corporate class in our country is willing to outsource everything including our technology for a buck. How can we remain a powerful country and maintain a high standard of living for most Main Street Americans if we give away all our technical advantages so a few in the US can get even more and more money, money they cannot spend in a thousand life times. If China and India becomes the leading technological power in the world, they will protect their advantage. Read about the era when China and India produced silk and how they kept it a secret for over 400 prosperous years.
My wife is a foreman in a company that makes electronic connectors. A Chinese company ordered some parts from her company, but did not reorder. Her theory is that the Chinese reverse engineered the parts so they could manufacture them.
