Outsourcing, specifically to China, has become a vicious cycle. Nobody can compete with a communist regime that will steal everything that isn’t nailed down, and has a relatively unlimited slave labor force. In order to get ahead, or to be able to make anything at all, you now have to turn to china to make anything at all.
The US has basically moved their entire manufacturing base to China, and handed it to a totalitarian communist government.
So what are you going to do when the communist Chinese decide that ALL of that belongs to them now?
You have jack shit as a response.
