BRING THE JOBS HOME!
ARE YOU REALLY GOING TO VOTE FOR SOMEONE WHO SENDS YOUR JOBS OVERSEAS?
Do you want to see America again become the industrial powerhouse, the light and hope of the world?
Does it make any difference to cut or raise taxes, or spending, if we send our jobs overseas?
Blumenauer has voted 80 percent of the time for "free" trade treaties that ship our jobs, our tax bases and our children’s futures overseas, and have caused untold misery to millions of Americans. These treaties redistribute income and freedom from the many to the few. The incumbent consistently sides with Wall Street against main street. He will almost certainly vote yes for the secretly negotiated Trans-Pacific Free Trade Agreement. Both conservative and liberal critics call this disastrous agreement “Nafta on steroids." Can America afford another NAFTA? Can you?
Go back to policies and tariffs that encourage the production of goods and services in America. Protect America's and you and your children's future.
Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, and Eisenhower all supported pro-American trade policies.
Supply and demand is the iron law of economics. A surplus of labor produces mass misery; a shortage of labor brings mass prosperity. With full employment, employers must compete for your skills, driving wages and benefits up. Business also benefits because well-paid workers spend more money, thereby creating more business opportunities.
I am pro-American, pro-life, pro-full employment policy and pro-union (current or former member--AFTRA, IAM, Teamsters, ATU).
I pledge to: end off shoring, end outsourcing, restore tariffs, support cheap and abundant energy, and support the Constitution with emphasis on the First, Second and Fourth Amendments.
