What benefits do conservatives see in exporting manufacturing jobs?
What is the economic benefit of exporting well paying manufacturing jobs overseas that shrink the middle classes and expand the low income classes? They must see some benefit since the middle income right vote against their own interests and elect pro big business and anti-blue collar middle class worker conservatives.

They do it for the same reason they give tax cuts to the rich. Line the pockets of the elite class

None, that is why we oppose the radical over regulation and taxation imposed by "progressives" in our government.

None, really. Those jobs could stay here if your ideological ilk in Washington weren't so intent on punishing people for doing business in the US.

What conservative aspects do you see about exporting manufacturing jobs? What makes you associate such nonsense with "conservatism"? What would people who support the deindustrialization of the US be trying to conserve?

The only benefit is that it may prevent the company from having to close. Example: My company can pay $9.30 each (made in USA) for items that sell for $7.99 in this country. I hate it but I have to get them made in Pakistan for $2.31 each. Even with tariffs and taxes I can make a 5% profit. Otherwise I can fire... More

Just because we're anti-union doesn't mean we want the jobs to go elsewhere. We want to unions to stop putting a stranglehold on local business and let the free market determine wages not some artificial minimum wage that is ridiculously high for the quality and quantity of work. Blame unions for the mess.

None, we need to make unions against the law and rebuild our production. Fascist unions played a very big part in destroying our economy, and possibly country. Obama just got back from India where he was trying to create more outsourcing.

Are you really so blind as to not see we have created a hostile environment for jobs and investment in the USA? Smart money goes where business is welcomed. Your position is what has driven away business.

We have been told for the last 40 years that we were going to become a service economy. Businesses started their trek out of the states even before NAFTA was signed by Clinton which turned out badly for both Mexico and the US. I'm not sure what effect NAFTA had on Canada. Maybe you could fill us in on that one.

Who says this is a "Conservative" thing? Republican maybe, and even then it's a stretch. I'm a solid, lifelong Conservative and I think it's a travesty. I also think it's downright criminal how the government bureaucratic machine sucks the life out of every entrepreneurial effort here... More

None--did you mean to say Clinton instead of Conservatives, since he signed NAFTA, because liberals want to destroy the private sector by allowing private sector manufacturing jobs to move out of the country, it's makes the private sector smaller and easier to destroy, the head (the Rich) of the private sector can be...
