Why not? China owns us anyway. Wouldn't it be ironic if the flag were made in America?

Same crap used to be said about Japan.

The American Steelworkers Union who made that video is just as much to blame, if not more so, for getting their jobs shipped overseas. Voting for a Union-pandering president will not save your jobs in a global economy. Keeping your workforce competitive will.

See, now I disagree with this. To draw the example out to an extreme, CEOs should be shipped over seas for what they demand as compensation, right?

When the common worker demands reasonable benefits like health care, time off, decent wages, and appropriate working conditions, somehow they are making overtly irrational demands. Why is it that we only look back several years later and finally decide that, yes, the workers were right in fighting against a reasonable amount of exploitation?

Our industrial past is littered with things like the company town, child labor, and unsafe working conditions. Each of which was met with visceral attacks when the worker contested exploitation and unsafe work places.

Bottom line in this article... Romney's company profits from moving jobs overseas.

And stop editing while I respond. I missed half your comment :P

China has less than 8% of the US debt. The vast majority of our debt is held by US Gov't agencies. China does not own us. Get facts, not propoganda.

China may only have 8% of the debt, but how many of our jobs?

U.S.citizens hold $959 billion in U.S. Debt. China- $1.2 trillion, making them the largest foreign holder of U.S. debt. Still pretty significant.

U.S. Government's Foreign Debt Hits Record $5.29 Trillion | CNSNews.com

Bottom line is that every time a country takes advantage of us like the Chinese are doing right now, our standard of living declines. Why would we ever elect someone who is a pioneer in outsourcing to be president of the United States?

Shipping jobs doesn't alter the debt relationship necessarily. These two are not directly related. It does alter our trade deficit and revenue balance which indirectly effects debt ratios.
