And they would make a HUGE moral statement and actually DO something good for the U.S.A.

But liberals are against those things.....

And let me tell you something, 50 years ago, when I was a kid, the United States BUILT things. And I remmember my father refusing to buy certain items BECAUSE it was "foreign-made". He was a union man, Local 638 Steamfitters, as were his only 2 brothers, and his father, and 3 of my cousins, 638 steamfitters all.

And I DO still look to see where things are made because I AM willing to pay a higher price for American-made products.

But sadly, for a large variety of reasons, you almost cannot buy ANYTHING made in the U.S.A. anymore.

I'm all for free trade, but it is SUPPOSED to be done on a level playing field, which it is NOT, and is WHY 90% of what you buy comes from China. we have sold our souls, and our country to save a few bucks. And that's a terrible thing.:(

It's ok. I never took a vow of consistency, either.

When the Democrats renounce their faith in, and support of, Karl Marx, Friedrich Engles, Vladimir Lenin, Jospeh Stalin, The Kennedys, Jimmy Carter, and The Obamaniac, MAYBE then I will consider possibly supporting them sometime in the future.

and btw, you exemplify PERFECTLY The Tyranny Of The Left. You believe that just because one is gay, one MUST be a DEMOCRAT, and because of that, you brook NO DISSENT. If someone dares to disagrees with the Left, they are vilified and ridiculed, and worse. You are always preaching "tolerance", yet you tolerate NO thinking which differs in teh slightest from your rigid radical socialist orthodoxy. Joseph Stalin is PROUD of you and is smiling up from HELL at ya !

Democrat, thy name is "Hypocrite".
