    Romney says government doesn't create jobs.

    Business is making record profits, but they aren't making jobs.

    So what actually "creates" jobs? Not drives job creation, but actually creates jobs?

    Every private sector job was created by a business.

    You do the math.

    Demand for a product or service, of course, but in this world it is too easy to outsource all but the most immediate and local things. In light of that the answer to what creates jobs would be strict protectionism for a core of jobs, products and skills that keep the best talent here and working.

    I know many will not understand, but the past present and future are all created at the same time, and for some, the Big Bang was that time. For others, it was when God Created the Earth. My point is every job ever created, that are being created now and the jobs that have yet to be created are already all around us. They are created billions and billions of years ago, and in time.

    New business creates jobs. When a business can't handle its work load, they hire new people.

    It's actually a number of things that create jobs:

    Demand

    An educated work force

    infrastructure

    a good corporate structure

    resources

    product

    In Asia, they refer to a "Golden Triad". A partnership of "Business, Government and Universities". The company I work at does 60% of its business overseas. Many people visit here for training on the equipment they purchase. From South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, China and other Asian countries. They talk at length about the partnership of Business, Government and Universities.

    Unfortunately, Republicans have a much different view:

    Yeah, right. Protectionism is as old as civilization. It sure created a lot of jobs during the Middle Ages, didn't it?

    You just proved that you have to be totally ignorant of history to be a liberal.
