    “It is an irrefutable fact that the outsourcing of jobs and manufacturing
    over the past 30 years has without question destroyed America’s middle
    class”

    That’s a pretty dense statement and I would argue that, while it may prove
    to be accurate, it is far from obvious or well supported by the sound clips
    and discussion presented in this video.

    Here is a quick list of things that would need to be demonstrated to
    substantiate the above statement:

    Has America’s middle class been destroyed?
    If so, was it from a decrease in the number of manufacturing jobs?
    Was outsourcing the cause of decreasing manufacturing jobs in America?

    None of these were addressed at all, in any way. Also, this video made no
    statements about the substance of NAFTA and why it is “the worst trade deal
    in history.”

    If you are trying to persuade the differently minded to consider an
    alternative perspective, I fear they will simply dismiss this video due to
    lack of substantiation.

    I have always enjoyed your presentations, Ben – keep up the good work!

    I like this guy…no spin… he tells it like it is. If only MSNBC and CNN
    could do that.
    Sure, Trump isn’t perfect…in fact, he is one flawed SOB,…but, once you
    look past those flaws and you actually look at his policies, he BY FAR is
    the best candidate.

    Free trade is great, trade deals however are awful.

    They don’t just allow it, they actually encourage outsourcing.

    If we didn’t have a horrible monetary system, excessive regulations, high
    taxes and subsidized industries then we wouldn’t have to worry about
    outsourcing.

    I find it hard to believe Trump is this ignorant of economics, he is lying
    to play to an audience. First explain the Smoot-Hawley act to him to see
    how Tariffs and protectionism work out and how price drives demand. What
    nobody wants to hear is American manufacturing workers are OVERPAID. If a
    high school kid can do your job with a few days training there is no way in
    hell you should be paid $20 per hour + benefits. Ask every American off
    camera if they’d rather pay $2000 dollars more for a car of equal or lesser
    quality to save some jobs in Michigan, 90% of them will laugh in your face
    and say NO!

    I’d rather have hangnail on my big toe than a lobotomy of my “common sense”
    other than all the bullshit that’s been permeated in the stupidity of the
    wide viewpoints to ponder … afortiori!

    One GOOD thing about PRESIDENT TRUMP is he is a GREAT BUSINESS MAN, TAKES A
    GREAT BUSINESS MAN TO RUN A GREAT CORPORATION LIKE THE UNITED STATES,
    INCORPORATED/US, INCORPORATED so far every man since PRESIDENT KENNEDY has
    been a total failure at running the CORPORATION AKA US, INCORPORATED/UNITED
    STATES, INCORPORATED, A FOREIGN BANKRUPT CORPORATION! PRESIDENT TRUMP (CEO)
    of the US, INCORPORATED/UNITED STATES, INCORPORATED will snap that
    GOVERNMENTAL SERVICES CORPORATION into shape or LIQUIDATE and return to the
    people of the Continental united states of America, the rightful owners,
    aka Priority Creditors of the US, INCORPORATED/UNITED STATES, INCORPORATED!
    We the people are the authority on this planet EARTH!

    He’s twisting what Donald did.. Donald needed to play the game to keep his
    company going. You don’t think Trump has dirt on back deals he’s needed to
    make just to keep going? Pay to play as they say.. Or pay to keep your
    business alive.. He’s not part of the gov boys club.. But he’s made deals
    with them before. Bet on it…. If gov spills the beans on Trump… Then
    Trump will tell all the back room deals he was forced to make. All the
    payoffs.. Or bribery money. Call it what you want. But the gov run selling
    of America. That’s why they don’t like him.. He’d cut the money off.. Trump
    knows how the gov really works and they know it. Why else would they be so
    scared? Run so many against Trump? Hoping the people voted for another so
    they can keep selling America. Yet that didn’t happen… Anyone catching on
    yet??

    Never trust bills that are thousands of pages long with titles like “free
    trade”, “patriot” or “affordable” in the title. They have nothing to due
    with the titles and are actually just the opposite.

    Trump has benefitted 100% from NAFTA. He isn’t working to bring
    manufacturing of his menswear line to the US. So if he can’t even bother to
    lead by example why the hell would anyone but a moron listen to him?

    Who is at fault. I would have to say the people behind the scene pulling
    the strings. They want products to be built at the cheapest level so they
    can rake in the money. Why do you think there is a world bank and the IMF ?
    Wake the fuck up !
