The hollowing of America

Three. Million. Jobs.

Lost.

Since 2000.

You want to know why we may have trouble maintaining our military and economic strength through the rest of this century? Don't look to Social Security, though you could look at skyrocketing health care costs separate from anything connected with Social Security.

Look instead to the loss of our nation's manufacturing base. We have got to build what we buy and buy what we build in order to maintain our nation's economic and military strength.

Our nation's political and economic elite remain our biggest threat, as long as they continue to imbibe from the elixir they call "free trade."
