That's why tossing around bumper-sticker slogans is pointless. Unless it makes you feel like you've accomplished something.
The two are completely related. And the GOP has taken the wrong side. For too long.
This last election, this has hit equilibrium in terms of voters. May have moved a bit in the Democrat position, or (as I suspect) Mormons are just too ... “whatever” to win a national election.
Whichever is the reason, the fix is obvious:
Bring back US jobs. Now.
There is no more time to wait.
One of the primary reasons USA is where it is today...
Somehow USA sending huge swaths of its wealth to other nations, many of them our enemies, has no effect on our tax revenue. How could this be? Almost nothing is made here. A proper middle class earns from manufacturing. Nearly every middle class job in manufacturing has moved to China, Korea.
Now we are actually in the position of USG borrowing (more) money, some from China, in order to protect USA from China. All the while USA is encouraged by many, to continue to spend the majority of their income on Chinese products. Those purchases _fund_ Chinese military growth and reduce our tax base. Repeat until it all comes crashing down into a huge pile of stupid.
Yup, we have some real problems and some posters herein are part of them....
