So don't count on flocks of fat and happy voters for Bush when people wake up and their spouse, sibling, father, or mother gets their job outsourced due to the advent of the international "new world order" hailed by GW's Daddy.
I don't have the answer, but therein lies the problem.
But we can't be a prosperous nation and world power if we all work at Wal-Mart, Taco Bell, and McDonalds.
My biggest concern is not that we are losing the jobs. It's that we don't have the ability to keep them. We are at a competitive disadvantage in these areas, and I needn't tell you what economists think about that.
And, if we all work at McDonalds, we don't deserve to be a world power. If we can't do what we do atleast on par with India etc, then maybe we should either figure out a way to do it better, or do something else.
