Democrats do realize that job outsourcing is a good thing right?
And that it helps develop third world nations and makes production in the US more efficient right? I can guarantee the answer is "No they don't" but it's worth a shot. I like how the anti-outsourcing lefties don't stop to think that this high unemployment is recent but job outsourcing isn't, meaning we were fine even when it was happening and that job outsourcing isn't to blame for anything.

Good luck trying to get leftists to understand the simple economic concept of comparative advantage. By their logic, when the great sailing ships of hundreds of years ago were being replaced by better ideas/technology, government should have stepped in to "save" the jobs of the makers of the great sailing ships.

The issue is what is the correct level of outsourcing and should our tax dollars support this endeavor, not whether it is good or not. It not aways all or nothing there has to be something reasonable in between. For example taxes or spending can't be zero and they should not be too high, just saying every tax cut or... More

Yes because when corporations outsource their work to third world or slave labor countries, that dramatically increases the corporate profits and we all know that when corporations make extra money they use it to "create jobs" right?

You're right. Job outsourcing isn't what got us into this mess. I mean unemployment's been going up in the us since the 80s but it hasn't affected our GDP in any noticeable way. Of course a high GDP in the US says nothing of the well being of American citizens. Liberals protesting the outsourcing of jobs is a lot like... More

It's certainly debatable whether it's a good thing or not. It's undoubtedly the "free" thing to do and the free market should rule. Leftists don't want the market to have freedom. They want to mold and shape their utopian model to the point that every unskilled worker gets an overpaid union job at the expense of the... More
