This whole article describes what has happened to America!!! Take the steel industry for example, in the 80"s the steel companies and unions were telling everyone that" the threat is real from foreign steel" but no one including our top elected officials would listen. Car companies in the US bought cheap, poor quality steel from overseas, and yes the cars rotted away under our noses and eyes, but the car companies were happy because they sold more cars. Then in the 90's the American workers and families were beaten again by NAFTA which drove even more jobs, purchasing power and homeland security away from America. Now, most steel mills in the US are owned by Russia (Rouge, Mich- ex ford motor ), ISPAT ( ex Inland steel), ISP ( ex Bethlehem steel) and now US Steel which is barely holding on with most mills closed down.
Thank our ex presidents, and elected officials for most of this mess and don't forget the auto companies who got bailed out yet don't buy American.
One last thing, if we ever go back to a major war, where will we get our armored steel or any steel to protect our soldiers and the American people, from our enemies?????
