Lou Dobbs is willing to take on big business and a Federal Government that has lost touch with its citizens and lost touch with reality.
Dobbs argues, and makes a strong argument, that outsourcing of jobs and the infrastructure of our nation is at great risk. Sure, you can get your products somewhat cheaper, but what is the REAL cost to the American consumer and taxpayer. Where will people go in our own nation to find another job that will keep them at a certain wage if those jobs dry up and are given to people making $1-2 dollars an hour??
Our democracy depends on a well educated, well informed and prosperous economic base. Huge deficits, debts financed by the Chinese (who are NEVER going to be our ally) and outsourcing of good jobs are not a good sign of democracy.
Read this book. You may not agree with everything Dobbs writes, but he is passionate and believes this nation is going the wrong way.
