THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN 2016 IS ABOUT ISSUES; AND FOR THE MAJORITY OF VOTERS, THE WORKING MIDDLE CLASS AND POOR AMERICANS, THE PRIMARY ISSUE FOR YOU, IS HOW CAN YOU PROVIDE THE NECESSITIES OF LIFE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY?

This is what I read today, “1,400 people learn their jobs are moving to Mexico”: http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/1400-people-learn-their-jobs-are-moving-to-mexico/ar-BBprYp2?ocid=spartandhp

“A crowd of Carrier manufacturing workers erupted into anger Wednesday as they learned their plant was being relocated to Monterrey, Mexico.

“Carrier, an Indianapolis-based heating, ventilation and air conditioning company owned by United Technologies, announced in a statement on Wednesday that the plant would undergo a three-year transition to Mexico starting in 2017.”

And that ladies and gentlemen is the issue you should be thinking about, while listening to all these Presidential candidates telling you why they are the one you should choose to be President of these United States; where will you make a living, where will you work?

Personally, I live in San Diego on the Mexican border; I have driven to Mexicali, turned south into Mexico toward San Felipe Mexico and have passed by miles and miles of new factories, all belonging to Corporate America who have moved to Mexico for cheap labor, low taxes to manufacture good which will be shipped north across the border free of tariff, for sale to working Middle Class and Poor Americans, thanks to NAFTA (North American Fair Trade Agreement), the Trade treaty signed into law by Democratic Party President Bill Clinton.

Last year, the Polaris Corporation moved lock stock and barrel from Minnesota to Mexico, to manufacture snowmobiles, to ship back to America and sell to working Middle Class and Poor Americans.

This just might solve America’s ‘immigration problem’ that candidates are arguing about; have you considered that aspect of the issue. Of course NAFTA might create an immigration problem for Mexico, if Carrier and Polaris employees start illegally sneaking across the Mexican border to get their old jobs back.

More recently, President Obama completed TPP Trade Agreement with Asian countries, to provide even more cheap labor, sans labor unions and labor laws, to attract Corporate America to move to those countries.

Now it is true that these treaties were the ‘brain child’ of Republicans (and Corporate America), but President Bill Clinton was not a Republican President (officially). And, President Barack Obama is not a Republican President (officially).

But you have to imagine that these Democratic Party Presidents must somehow benefit from the Trade Agreements they are responsible for approving, after listening to their explanation for American jobs fleeing America, for the benefit of Corporate America.

One can only wonder if the benefits of Trade Agreements made by Democratic Party Presidents and politicians, do not “trickle down” to those Presidents and these other Democratic Party politicians.

Try explaining the benefits of Trade Agreements for Carrier and Polaris employees.

So when you working Middle Class and Poor voters are listening to Presidential candidate debates, find out how candidates stand on Corporate America’s Trade Agreements. Also, find out how the AFL-CIO Labor Union stands on America’s Trade Agreements; whether you are a labor union member or not, labor unions are the ONLY VOICE OF AMERICA’S WORKING MIDDLE CLASS AND POOR.

President Nixon is always being praised for opening up trade with China; have you ever wondered why everything Walmart has to offer for sale, is stamped, “Made in China”!

Henry Ford used to pride himself in the fact Ford employee’s parking lot was filled with Ford Automobiles; today, some Ford Automobiles are powered by Japanese Automaker’s motors. And yet, Ford advertising keeps saying, Americans should buy American autos; huh!

In 2016, vote; and think, before you vote. Oh yes, and be careful what you wish for!

And if you are lucky enough to have an employer, by all means, remember that your employer is all that stands between you and poverty!

So, the most important American political issue of all, is this: employers are a necessity of America’s working Middle Class and Poor however, nothing is produced by employers; products and services are only produced by American working Middle Class and Poor. That is, unless they are produced by citizens of Mexico and/or Asia.
