Unemployment is the biggest issue in the United States today, and we are looking for leaders who have the recipe to create more jobs. Raising taxes, eliminating tax loopholes, or even trimming spending around the edges will not solve our colossal debt and deficit problems. The only thing that will make a positive difference is more people working real jobs and paying taxes as a result. And, we don’t mean hiring more people for government jobs because that requires more spending. Obama’s Stimulus bill only dug us deeper into debt and depression.
Why hasn’t anybody but Donald Trump figured out where the good jobs have gone? Apparently, he is the only one to say out loud that the United States is being ripped off by Communist China, which has now become insufferably arrogant. We have lost an average of 50,000 manufacturing jobs every month since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001. The U.S. has closed 42,400 factories because of our trade deficit with China. China’s official news agency impudently demands that the U.S. reduce our military expenditures at the same time that China is spending its U.S. dollars to build up an offensive Chinese military.
Where are the U.S. leaders to stand up and say we are no longer willing to subsidize and defend a globalist world where Americans must compete with Asians who work for 50 cents an hour? Where are the U.S. leaders to say we will no longer stand for Communist China stealing our intellectual property? Where are the U.S. leaders to expose the hypocrisy and dishonesty of so-called free trade that allows China to impose tariffs against us, while we allow China to sell all its goods in the U.S. without any tariff and use their U.S. dollars to build a Chinese military to threaten us?
