Americans are becoming the world's serfs.
Union busting {thank you NAFTA} and dumbing down real earnings is NOT the answer. Import tariffs on ALL foreign goods now, as well as export tariffs of ALL food-stuffs headed to OPEC countries. 1,000% on food to Dubai sounds about right.
Face facts, we've been sold out - lock, stock and American Dream.
We're screwed and we've nobody to blame but ourselves. We elected Clinton - twice, and GW Bush - twice. Dumb is as dumb does and we're reaping the fruits of the seeds we'd sown.
Wake up - serfs, rise up, demand fair trade - NOT 'free-trade.' We're paying {and paying} the freight to raise other nations as we lower ourselves in the pit of debt and despair.
Wake up - suckers!
