I don't know what is funnier, what you just typed or the fact that Ghrit and Kellory both liked your completely unfounded comment. I give you years of research and fact in law, and you give me what, a Republican talking piece? No data, no facts? To give you the benefit of the doubt, I should add that it's true how many corporations have settled in foreign countries, but the punch line isn't what you think. According to the leading scholars and fascists who steer policy (like Brzezinski for example) clearly illustrate the necessity to bring the U.S. economy down to a level which is closer to that of Mexico and usher in the need for a unified currency (we've heard talk about the Amero before but this is only one example). Then, we have NAFTA and GATT trade agreements and the World Bank itself playing not against, but for the corporations. In fact, the more we look, the more we should find that nothing you say is true at all, and the corporations continue to grow and expand at our own expense. We shouldn't confuse the effects of despotism on a national level with alleged incompetence of "government". Once we accept that there is no government, it all becomes clear. Your "government" is comprised of privately owned corporations. If you had a Dunn and Bradstreet account, you could verify this in a matter of seconds. Enter any local, state or federal "government" agency. Enter any police department. Enter your own name, or your birth certificate number. All corporations. ALL OF IT. Now, if you're still in denial after all of THAT, then perhaps nothing will bring you back from denial, because according to your opinion, the U.S. Government has left and taken all the good paying jobs with them. Where they've gone to is anybody's guess. Maybe they went to Mars in a black hole. Anyway, I can tell you didn't follow a single link in my previous post or we wouldn't be having this discussion.
