The free market of sending manufacturing jobs overseas where labor laws are quite different is the "free market" at work in the US to disemploy US workers. No tax break can compete with not having to pay a living wage to Americans while paying Indian children $2 a day to work in textile mills... which is actually a violation of Indian law which requires that you pay children $7 per day.
I don't think the world should be held to US standards, but I do think that American businesses and workers should be held to US standards.
How tragically stupid for those who didn't bother to prepare when they were young for the possibility that they may have medical issues when they get older. Good thing they have collectivist agitators who will try to make sure that they will somehow or another have their lack of personal responsibility subsidized at gunpoint, huh?Quote:

I guess it works out well for the bottom-line profits, and we all know that profits are more important than ethics in today's world.
The US and Europe are headed for a new wave of National Socialism. Believe it. It will happen. And people will whine that "It's like the NAZI's" but it won't be like the NAZI's. It will be a galvanization of the Euro-Sphere (which includes far flung places like Japan, South Korea, Australia, India, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, US, Volkstaat, Israel, Kenya, and Canada) while eschewing the old fashioned definitions of race and nation. A master race defined by economics, culture, geographic strategy and utility rather than genealogy.
