I know this wil bring out the thumbs down nuts., but here goes anyway.
Michigan is what is called a industrial state, who's economy is based on the manufacture of not only automobiles, but all associated products. They also have, or did have a large amount of general factory work producing many of the products we need for every day living.
Now look around you, and count the number of Japanese cars on the road, and remember, every one represents a bunch of American workers with no job or income.
Next, go into any department store, not just Wal Mart, but even the high end more expensive stores, and also the hardware and home inprovement stores and look at the vast amount or products "made in China".
These also represent many American workers out of a job.
When our work force is out of work and no steady income, a number of things happen, these people cannot buy new cars, cannot pay off their mortgages, cannot go one vacations, lack the funds for clothes and shoes and have to cut way back on recreation and eating out, so the whole economy suffers.
So, that is the problem with not only Michigan, but also Ohio, and all states that used to have a manufacturing base, and surprising enough, our elected officials are ignoring this aspect of our sorry economy, and the peole driving these Jap cars will not admit to it ether.
Common sence will dictate the facts, if nothing is made here, and our workers are idle, the whole country suffers.
If we were producing items that China and these other nations were buying maybe things would even out, but why should they even think of buying our products when they make them so much cheaper , so we're screwed.
OK, so now the gang will come out with, "we are building some of these Jap cars here in the US".
Not true, we are putting them together with the parts shipped in from Japan, such as almost all of the engines and transmission being sent over here, together and ready to install, in fact we manufacture very few parts for these cars, and the profits from same go back to Japan istead of being re-invested here in this country.
