    We can compete against outsourcing with education and building up a modern infrastructure. Two things Republican will NEVER agree to.

    Investing in America is a waste of money.

    Education is for snobs.

    I used to think there is no such thing as a dumb question. Chris has opened my mind on that.

    The repubs call that person a patriot. Further confusing them of what the word patriot means.

    Absolutely. The GOP/tea baggers and their greedy corporate masters are turning a Communist nation into the worlds next superpower. That is enabling the enemy.

    I have just one thing to say since the left have in record time gone off on their standard rant.Obama's job czar Jeffrey Immelt out sourced G.E. jobs to China did he commit treason?

    I have said in the past that very thing. Not only are they harming this country and it's standard of living, they are helping other countries become stronger and more economically formidable. At least one of those countries(China) is an oppressive Communist country.

    But, the truth of the matter is, if we are going to truly label them traitors...then our government would be accessories to the crime for allowing them to legally pursue this practice. These free trade agreements, which are anything but free, have been one of the major reasons for our unemployment /underemployment woes. It has also hurt our revenue flow that government uses to pay it's bills and work on the debt....more people making better wages means more tax revenue. Truthfully, this started under Clinton with the NAFTA deal....was expanded under Bush by giving China "most favored nation" status, and we got kicked in the teeth again under Obama with the Korean Free Trade Agreement. These countries tariff our goods coming into their countries at up to 25%. We tariff at 6%....IIRC.

    So yeah it is traitorous, but there's plenty of blame to go around.
