Skip to comments.Bring back US jobs. From China and from elsewhere. Now.

We are currently caught in a national debate which in my opinion misses the very (most) important aspect.
We are currently debating between conservatives, and liberals.
Conservatives are determined to maximise profits.
Liberals are determined to maximise unions.
Both of those are wrong goals. What we need as a nation, are maximum profits which benefit America.
America is what is not looked at.
We used to be the biggest employer, now it is China.
Our computers and electronics industry used to be biggest, now it is China.
With industry after industry, our industries are taken over by China. Now we are running huge deficits against China and those are growing every day.
We need a change.
We need an America-first policy.
what you said
Wong, Conservatives are determined to maximize liberty.
Rescuing jobs from China (or anywhere else) will only give credence to Marxist Rat policy overall.
Americans must get the government they deserve.
While Ubama reelection is disheartening and will no doubt lead to MORE outsourcing, America still has an acceptable manufacturing industry.
I can guarantee Gun Manufacturers are not planning layoffs soon (baring Ubama tossing the 2nd amendment in the dumpster)
I am a conservative, and I believe in free markets, but I have to agree with you that we have got to find a way to increase the number of good private sector jobs. I don’t have a miracle answer, but I do agree with you that providing good paying private sector jobs may be the key to Republican victories and a better America. The Republicans need to get their smart people on this.
The Obama regime continues to add more punitive taxation and regulations to U.S. businesses. To whom are you directing your whine?
Protectionism isn’t the answer. Free trade enhances competition and drives prices down. You’re advocating a lower standard of living for Americans, and empowerment of a regulated economy.
I have listened to this for long enough.
It is time for conservatives to do what is right for America.
I had hoped Romney could lead this, but he lost.
That does not mean we quit. We redouble our efforts and we fight on behalf of America.

When out-of-work techie Duke Evans and his family try to rebuild their lives in a remote mountain town, their own version of the American Dream is cut short as planes begin falling from the sky and all power, communications and transportation suddenly stops working. Caught in an unprecedented cyberattack that signifies the end of the U.S. as we know it, Duke and his family must use all their wits and the unlikely help of an illegal immigrant, to survive this frighteningly realistic scenario where water, food and time are running out.
Here’s the sad reality, why would I want to create an American job?
If it costs you $60,000 to fill a $36,000 job what’s the point?
I’ve looked at a startup possibility and frankly it’s in my best interest to just hire some key American personnel and outsource all technical jobs overseas. I’m not interested in creating jobs, I’m interested in making money to support myself and my family.
A rational full-employment policy would involve:
1) a free market in labor, so that wage rates can be adjusted to correspond with the state of the demand for labor and thus make any given monetary demand for labor - any given amount of payroll spending - sufficient to provide full employment.
2) a 100% reserve gold standard, so that no financial contraction need ever occur and thus no precipitation even of temporary mass unemployment.
This policy would guarantee full employment in a context of the highest possible productivity of labor and would operate to the benefit of everyone.
50% of the voting public is a bunch of worthless communist liberal dirtbags. They deserve NOTHING! They are not Americans, they’re freeloaders.
As a business owner, my primary goals, in order,are to service my customers and MAXIMIZE profits.
How I conduct my business is none of the governments concern.
The only sound money candidate to run last election was not chosen by the GOP.
Sound money would enforce a balance of trade because imbalanced flows would result in price increases that could not be met, allowing the market’s price mechanism to direct production and trade in accordance with the underlying realities of supply and demand.
So long as we can print money in exchange for Chinese (or anywhere else) produced goods, we’ll do it, even as it hollows out our industries.
“Paper money has had the effect in your state that it will ever have, to ruin commerce, oppress the honest, and open the door to every species of fraud and injustice.” - George Washington — in a letter to Jabez Bowen, Rhode Island, Jan. 9, 1787
You’re willing to give up the liberty of some to trade abroad for the security of those who make things more expensively here.
I agree on one condition, get rid of unions first.
See this is where I disagree.
Internally how your business operates is none of my business. I grant you that - enthusiastically.
Globally however is a different story. Globally everything you do can be the government’s business.
Come to America - we have it all:
Bureaucrats and politicians who hate you.
Yes please, move to America. :)
Yes, economic liberty. Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness started out as Life, Liberty and Property. This is all about economic freedom. Thinking of which, I’m going to re-read my book on the constitutional convention, particularly the part debating that phrase. It’s important for all Americans to understand that “happiness” is about our ability to thrive financially, not legalized marijuana, etc.
It seems strange that Nissan, Toyota, Kia, Volkswagon, BMW, Mercedes and probably Honda too, have all built plants in the right to work states. AL, TN, SC, and ?. But to hear the blue states, we are all scum and we take more from federal tax dollars than we pay in. But this should be changing. One would think. It does indeed take time to change from an agriculture based economy on the “southern states” to a mfg. based economy. Wages at these places are good/decent, benefits, they aren’t strangled by the unions. Our property taxes are relatively low, our state income taxes are relatively low, when compared to places like NJ and MA and others. But yet we’re still redneck scum in their eyes.
