6. Republicans have done a good job
demonizing labor unions and making it stick. I can`t for the life of me understand why more Americans aren`t interested in labor issues, but I`ll tell you what....they will be when their job goes overseas.

Too few people are looking at the big picture. Instead of consumers celebrating the fact that they could buy a made-in-China screwdriver for $1.00, they should have been thinking about the layoffs those screwdriver purchases helped create.

If we don`t do something fast about our manufacturing base, we`ll dearly regret it down the road. This country would be nothing without the workers who built it.
