To The Daily Sun,
Attention presidential candidate. If any one of you can answer this simple question, you get my vote. You all talk a big game on the subject of creating new jobs in this country. How about bringing the old manufacturing jobs back into this country before you fantasize about new jobs? The question is: How are you going to deal with the vast number of American companies, with the American trademark behind their names, enjoying the American tax shelters and loop holes? Are you going to tell all of these companies that if the are going continue to import products into this consumerism country, then their companies will no longer have the luxury of our warm and fuzzy tax laws and they are to move their corporate offices to the respected country's of products origins and loose their U.S. Patent and U.S. Registered Trademark?
Here is a short list or American companies that do not see the need to produce products in the USA.
Levi Strauss, Wrangler - imported from Bangladesh; Faded Glory, Rustler - Mexico; Dickies - Honduras - Fruit of the Loom, Hanes - El Salvador; Dr. Scholls, Hoover, Dirt Devil, Eureka, Bissell, Electrolux - China; Westinghouse, Black and Decker, Sunbeam Products i.e., Mr Coffee/Crock Pot - China; Hamilton Beach - Mexico; GE, George Foreman, Rival, Farberware - China; Bostitch - China; Dremel, Stanley - China, Mexico, Thailand; Skil - Mexico; RCA - China.
This is just to name a few. We all know that I could go on and on with this list.
If you really want to impress your prospected voters than you had better have a plan on what to do about bringing these companies production lines back into the country or kick them out, we need all of these manufacturing jobs back, period. Give us no more of the same BS empty promises on creating jobs with the same old politically correct language.
I'll be awaiting your straight answer, but I will not hold my breath, for you see, I do not think any one of you in the crowd will have a definitive answer.
One more thing, will our U.S. Olympics team be wearing clothing manufactured in China in the up coming Olympics, like they did in the last one?
Make America great again. Huh, well see.
