The Power of Stuff

Having an economy based on consumption, funded by debt, and promoted by entitlements has turned this industrialized nation into one without industry.  The trade deficit is a manufacturing deficit, a debt of production.  America no longer makes anything, an exaggeration, of course, but one of proportional truth.  Public sector jobs now surpass production.  Service jobs exponentially out number manufacturing.  (Remember: every public sector job is a service job.)   While some services are a necessity, the spoiled “serve me” attitude will cause our success to lead to our failure.  We have taken the tangible for granted, placed value on the unnecessary, and forgotten how blessed we are as a nation.  The foundation of our economy has been chipped away by labor unions, shaken by government meddling, and demonized by an ungrateful workforce.  A quick lesson for those who demand that corporations, manufacturers, and small businesses act in good faith:  If you want a friend, be one — or jobs may become our only export.
