NO!!!! I didn't support Obama, and NO!!!! I didn't support Romney. The last time I voted was for George Bush, and that was a big mistake
If you last voted for Bush 41 or 43 you should have no dog in this hunt as you just said you have not voted recently. If you do not vote you should not complain about your representation.

Thats what i'm complaining about, because I don.t have a dog in this hunt, and you shouldn't ether. If you support somthing you don't believe in you've got no right to complain, because your getting what you ask for, and thats what I would be doing.

If voting really changed anything then it would be illegal.

Glad someone brought up Ross Perot, yes he was a business man and would have made a very strong leader. He nailed the NAFTA and other "fair" trade aggrements for what they were. Remember how the powers that be put the media on Ross? They made him a laughing stock and America paid the price for it. Think about this a country like China makes a real crappy shoe, low quality, for next to nothing and spends 4 times the cost of making the shoes in hype and having some dumb jock endorse the shoe so some half wit American must have the shoe. One thing for sure high paying American jobs are gone forever, we blew that ride.

He wanted to pull all our troops out of other countries and he wanted to stop doing business with them. In this crazy world you have to stay involved.

What drove the companies over seas was the free trade agreements,if it wasn't for that those companies would still be here, and still paying union scale, and that money would still be in circulation, and you would still have demand, and their still be need for supply. If the minimum wage went up to $9.00 per/hr. that would be an extra $70.00 per week, which would also go into circulation, which would increase supply and demand.
Ross Perot had it right,he said if they pass the free trade agreements, our jobs would leave with a giant sucking sound.
Who needs the money anyway,its still here,the companys that left didn't take the money that belong to us.

1. Ending military occupations isn't isolationism.

2. The trade would only have ended if the countries in question refused trade parity. That too isn't isolationism. it's called "Fair Trade".

So where is the isolationism?

Why do we have troops in Europe and Britian / we should cut the military by 50% the wars of the future will be fought by drones and from above no boots on the ground

Also should pull all aid to foriegn countries - why are we sending money to Pakistan and Libya - its a bigger problem than entitlement to me

I believe minimum wage should be increased every year. I also believe Able bodied people that are of sound mind should be preparing themselves for work and applying for jobs that are better than minimum wage. As someone else said minimum wage jobs aren't a plan for success if you plan on raising a family. People that work for minimum wage as mature adults aren't paying their fare share to quote our President.

Then unemployment will increase every year. Minimum wage is simply another federal tax, disguised as a social benefit.

Unemployment in the USA will grow every year in the US until we have some policies that protect our jobs.

Oh yea, staying involved in the rest of the worlds business is really working out great for us. This may come as a shock to some but America is B-R-O-K-E and a debtor nation that if demanded could not bay back our debt now. We have been borrowing money to play world police. The "world" we worry so much about is wanting to stop using the US dollar as a standard they just havn't found a better currency yet but its coming.

The cost of living would increase regardless of who gets a raise, but when everyone else gets a raise and minumum wage earners don't, it just pushes minumum wage earners farther behind. I wonder how much more they can stand.

If minumum wage is increased to $9.00 per/hr, this will be an extra $70.00 per week that will go into circulation, and that will increase supply and demand, witch means more jobs.

i don't think more money in circulationan and an increase in cost of living will increase supply and demand. the extra money will not go for more demand, but for the increased costs.
higher costs will likely hurt demand and jobs = inflation and recession.

Unions drove jobs out as well as goverment regulations but it makes no differance now because these co.'s have made huge investments in other countries and they wont be back,there is no reason for them to come to a place they cant make money,why would they want to come back anyway,the only thing that matters to any co. is their bottom line,they are not in the sympathny business nor are they care about the u.s.they have invested their money where they can make money,they have no intention of comming back,so tell o'to keep on puting on more goverment regulation,and more will go as soon as possible.
