go stand in front of the mirror and think about what you said.
Corporations are not evil. They've always maximized profit.
Selfishness...aka survival of the fittest...has been going on
since the dawn of time.
Today, it's easier for them to do that by exporting YOUR job.
If you and I would work for Chinese sweat-shop wages, we'd all have jobs.
If you and I would buy expensive stuff created by union wages,
we'd all have jobs.
Problem is that we won't do EITHER of those things and we got what we got.
Globalization has removed our ability to have a higher standard of
living. It's gonna get a lot worse...
Taxes are part of the issue, but more corporate taxes won't get you a job.
They'll get you more wars and more pork-barrel projects for the influential.
Survival of the fittest...that's what drives the world. Always has...
Don't leave out egregious over regulation and federal agencies being
used to promote a political agenda by descending upon any corporation
that the executive branch branch wants eliminated by putting them out of
business. I'm sure you've noticed what The Obama Administration is doing
to coal fired power plants. Obama even stated during his first campaign
that he wanted to put coal mines out of business. One by one,
his administration is going to destroy industries for the good of the
No, corporations are not evil, they are amoral. But when they were
first created, the corporate charter that allowed their existance
required operating for the public good and for a specific period of
time for a specific purpose. Over time, and with the help of Delaware,
those restrictions were removed. That's why so many corporations were
charterd in Delaware.
FWIW, New Jersey was the first with Delaware following suit. In a rather
instructive happenstance, NJ lost its lead as state where people
incorporated when NJ increased taxes on corps driving them out.
America is at that awkward stage. It's too late
to work within the system, but too early to shoot

what we can’t compete with is:
1. China’s regulations on not letting US corporations
compete on the same level playing field in China as we let
Chinese corporations compete with US corporations
here in the US.
2. China completely ignoring intellectual property rights.
3. Corporate, technology and economic espionage by China.
4. China subsidizing its companies so they can sell their goods
here at a loss until their competing US counterparts are out of business.
