OUTSOURCING AMERICAN JOBS destroys Middle Class Americans. Sending AMERICAN JOBS to other nations destroys American families, communities and working people. OFFSHORE OUTSOURCING is not fair to AMERICAN WORKERS or GOOD for the United States. FREE TRADE undermines American living standards, the U.S. economy and U.S. national security. Outsourcing American jobs is legal because politicians like Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton choose corporate elites over America and average Americans.

America Sours on Free Trade (DUH!)
The business class journalists at Fortune magazine who write for the corporate management class which reads Fortune have discerned that a large and growing majority of Americans (68%) don't support free trade. Of course, the business class journalists at Fortune slant the story in a most predictable manner evident at the outset with "The backlash against free trade is growing" in readers' browser title bars and links to the story from CNN.COM. Read the (slanted but still interesting) story HERE.
I'm a software engineer, an Information Technology worker, opposed to the replacement of American workers with low-wage foreign workers and offshore outsourcing middle class American jobs. I believe that most corporate, academic and political "leaders" are short-sighted, self-interested and indifferent to the general welfare of all Americans. This failure of national leadership is evident in the declining employment opportunities, living standards, savings, and real income of most Americans. I can be reached via email at "Info_Tech_Guy(at)Yahoo(dot)com" but if you have an opinion, you're welcome to share it on this blog.
