3. How do we fight back? I wonder if an army of a million entrepreneurs couldn't help?

Imagine small American companies selling to Americans. Pftt! free trade and the off shoring of profit. Of course, these companies formed by the entrepreneurs would have to value their workers rewarding them with incentives like vacation time, over-time, etc. like it used to be. Profit sharing would be helpful too. I don't see any other way out. Guess they'd need a stamp to put on their goods saying: "100% Made in America".

5. I listened to Perot. I participated in his

 

campaign. I knew then the sending of jobs overseas was the precursor of America's death. And NOW with what is happening, there can be no eureka moment leading to a reversal of the End Reagan started.
