Opening trade relations with China (and other places around the world) wasn't and isn't a bad thing. Letting it get completely out of control was another thing. The NAFTA agreement wiped out many cities and towns across America. Both party's were for NAFTA which only proves that politicians do what other politicians do and they all are out for number one and damn the citizens.<quoted text>
It was a republican by the name of Nixon that opened trade relations with China. One could theorize that the downfall started there. See what I mean? There's ALWAYS someone else from the other side to blame.
At some point and time Obama will be outed because his tax the wealthy scheme will fall flat and we will be in worse shape. Then what? Will he claim he will now be forced to tax the hell out of the middle class because the wealthy have no more money for him to steal? Do you think the Muslim Brotherhood will repay the money they have gotten from the US in the last few years? Pakistan? Africa? Who will we bleed when the wealthy and the middle class have died out and we become a 3rd world nation? We are headed that way. We know we are yet what is anybody doing to stop it? Pointing fingers at the other guy? Calling those who disagree with us, racists? Dividing our citizens? Creating a crisis to distort one of our previous brain farts?
Not going over the fiscal clifff or going over the fiscal cliff isn't our biggest problem. Ask the voters what our biggest problem is and they will tell you Mitch McConnell. WTF??? It is what it is and it ain't gonna be pretty.
