We are in an economic depression. Almost 50 million on food stamps. Hundreds of thousands of foreclosed homes and shuttered businesses not to mention the 20+ million manufacturing jobs lost to outsourcing over the last decade. Extended unemployment benefits. Exploding social security disability recipients. 46% of the population not paying taxes. Declining household income for the last decade. 1% return on CD savings decimating retirement for millions of seniors. Escalating food, medical and energy costs further depressing incomes of the middle class and fixed income retires. Not only is it an economic depression, it is a psychological depression in which the producer segment of the population is losing hope and belief in the American dream is non existent in many segments of society.

What you have described is the real price of globalism,Free Tradetm, open borders, harmonization, amnesty, . . .. Outsourcing and using the cheapest labor in the world has come at a great price.
