Globalism: What place does the American worker have in this?

American workers are increasingly being locked out of jobs that service the American market, and judging by our trade deficit, emerging markets elsewhere don't have any work for Americans, either.

What about globalism ISN'T designed from the ground up to exclude American workers?

1. I can't wait to read the answers to your post. Thanks for stating it so well.

Let's get real.

Globalism is a way to destroy our democracy. The international treaties have the same legal status as our Constitution. Guess we don't have to worry about those first ten amendments now, do we?

And Article I granting powers to Congress. Congress will just be a formality if globalism continues apace.

Goodbye America. Hello global tyranny.

4. Don't make me yank your 'citizen of the world' card.

 

There are some folks who think that globalism will solve all our ills. Especially a one world government. *puke* (I ain't one of them.)

2. No place. Unless we accept third world wages and conditions.

 

The whole purpose of globalization is to suppress wages and maximize profits.

6. And this falls right in line with the "America must lower its standard of living" crowd

 

You might find that adherents of THAT philosophy are a little closer to home than you realize...

9. Maybe in your twisted mind. And the post you linked to doesn't support your contention

 

any more today than it did then. You just got sore because I don't buy your BS.

But thanks for playing.

5. As Mr Slayer stated above; it's screamingly obvious

The newly developed and rapidly growing middle classes in India, Singapore and China need consumer goods.

America needs jobs.

Ergo, Americans will be making that consumer stuff for the markets over there.

All that remains is to debate the wage.
(cough cough)
