1. kentuck, you have it nailed. I have huge doubts.
Corporations don't have the least sense of patriotism. They simply do not have our best interests at heart. We compete against socialized industries in both Japan and China.

While Japan was eating our lunch producing steel and dumping it on our market, their steel industry wasn't even profitable. They didn't really care so much about profit because their aim was to employ their people. In the meantime our steel industry was fatally damaged. The government and corporations have been our worst enemies. They have harmed the American worker by not looking out for our interests. They treated us as if we were the enemy. Corporations responded to lower effective tax rates by speeding up the rate of outsourcing.

Something must be done!
