McCain makes it clear why we are in such a mess. Cheap goods made elsewhere only hurt our economy. McCain makes the case for how stupid he is. Paying more for American made goods keeps the money flowing through America. This makes everything better for us. Cheep goods are great for rich people that don't give a rat's ass about us. Economics 101 proves my point. Cheep goods made elsewhere don't do anything for those that make them, so there is no excuse for doing it, even as some pretend that's not so. I know it sounds better if you can buy an appliance for 20% less made elsewhere, but it is a scam. sure, you think you save 20 %, but most of the 80% goes elsewhere so you have American workers that cannot afford to buy, which in most cases includes the guy that bought the cheap stuff. What is not understood is that Obama feels that getting on top of Globalization is so important he is willing to sell us out to achieve that goal at the very wrong time. Only the very rich need Obama's trade deal. I'm surprised our president is not bright enough to get it. WE need Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders for president. We had the "full cup" and instead of holding fast and keeping our markets to ourselves and countries like Germany, We have been pouring out of our full cup into those near empty that does not help low wage foreign workers. That means they can't afford what we make so the idea of FREE TRADE is a hoax. When they say the numbers don't lie, how about we take a good look at them and see that we are not gaining anything. Our worker wages have gone no where since Reagan administration, and those that followed, while the rich get almost ALL OF IT. Come on folks, PEASE GET EDUCATED. The power brokers need to keep you stupid.
