There is a MASSIVE trade deficit, and we are giving China our wealth, technology and power.

Bring back American manufacturing.

Just one generation ago, we were on top of the entire globe.

In just one generation, we have squandered that, and given away what was the envy of the entire globe - to a massive communist country.

Bring back American manufacturing.

Now.

“Bring back American manufacturing.
Now.”

You can’t even START to bring back American Manufacturing, until you begin to address the reasons that it was destroyed in the first place.

And that will NEVER happen in a political environment like this.

I repeat. There is no such thing as a trade deficit. It’s a null term without meaning used by economic illiterates as of it were a bogeyman.

We give them money. They give us goods. The books balance.

The fact that we buy more goods from them than they do from us is meaningless. They buy more of our debt than we do of theirs.

Books always balance. Period.

You are right. Unfortunately you have folks even here with their heads so firmly implanted, they can only see daylight a couple of times per year.

Don’t tell me it can’t be done, bringing manufacturing and jobs back to the U. S. Just get it done.

All it takes for a person with even a little intelligence, is to take a look at what manufacturing has facilitated for China.

With mechanization, today’s labor costs in the United States could be only a small percentage of the finished product cost.

Instead, our people look for reasons why selling out the United States and it’s citizens is reasoned.

Well, it’s not.
