In the past 20 years our job base has shifted from industrial to service. As a result, American has lost the majority of those Manufacturing positions to places like Africa and China. Should we care who produces these products as long as we can sell them?

Well the answer is an overwhelming yes. America is moving into the new century with less ability to produce but an ever increasing ability to consume. As a result, the wealth of America is being shipped overseas. Why is this happening? It is very simple and obvious to most, taxes. Our government has increased spending at a rate that we cannot afford; the war did not help, yet it is the only thing that is being pointed out as the cause.

The real cause is Congress and their ability to spend every dime that comes in along with every dime that will ever come in. Government programs after government programs we spend until we have nothing in the bank. Even after the government determines that a program does not work; they keep funding it while they create more. Can this continue without bankrupting America? We are already bankrupt; we have been for many years now.

How did we let this happen, well this might shed some light on the subject.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: "From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage." – Alexander Fraser Tytler from "The Decline and Fall of the Athenian Republic" published in 1776

You see here that as long as I get mine, it does not matter what the outcome is. The problem is not that congress is corrupt; the problem is that congress wants America to be broke. They want our currency worthless, they want you totally dependant on the government for everything. Barack Obama has a plan for America that everyone should look at. His plan is socialist takeover of our lives; he uses the ruse that we must take back Washington, he is from Washington. His plans are to control you by using a tax increase on everything that is in existence. Your toilet paper will increase, your cars will increase and gas will be outlawed. The evidence is in his plans, look for yourself and if you do not see it, refer to my other blog post on “Why our Educations System is failing”.

The jobs are leaving because you cannot have a free market in a Socialist society. You cannot have “Profits” in a Socialist society. Just the term “Rich” makes the socialist angry, so if the “Rich” make you angry then you are a true Socialist. How does a government convert to socialism? That is a very slow process to make the people totally dependant on the government. Katrina is a prime example of this, people standing around with no clue as to how to help themselves. People were just standing around wondering when the Federal Government is going to save them. They did not know how to do anything, so they just sat around until the government came to the rescue. FEMA was blasted for their late attendance in Katrina, maybe that is because of our education system and the ineptness of the people to understand anything about our government.

It is the responsibility of the State to “Ask” the Federal Government to come in and help. The Governor of Louisiana did not immediately ask for assistance. As a matter of fact, they were totally unable to make any decisions or take any actions to prevent the hardship of the people that hired them to make these decisions.

Why did they not help before the flood? They themselves were a product of socialist policies and believed that the federal government was responsible for those decisions.

Lesson 1: The states are to control themselves and the federal government, hence Congress.

Lesson 2: All powers NOT directly given to the federal government are left to the Individual states.

Education, charities and taxes are to be at the State level. Why is it not? Maybe it is because in a Socialist society everything comes from the federal level. That is against everything that the Constitution stands for and dictates that should be. But why do we let them get away with it? Maybe it is because our education system is intentionally producing socialist children for a socialist change.

Why are our jobs leaving America? I believe it is because the government cannot control them so they make them move over extremely high taxes and other regulations that put too much burden on the companies and therefore drive them out of the United Socialist States of America.
