Americans must realize that the only way we are going to keep the things we have fought for, things like being paid for overtime, a 40 hour work-week, and benefits, it will mean that we must continue to fight to keep those things. The minute an employer believes that they have the upper-hand you will see salaries and benefits drop.
The same things apply to American foreign policy. If the government (as long as we stay with this two-party system) we will continue to see wars for resources with those resources being delivered to the American Corporate System (Fascism). We really need to pay attention to what is going on. A great many corporations don't really operate with any patriotic motive. As long as the shareholders make money and as long those high on the corporate ladder are getting paid well and collecting their bonuses, bringing jobs to the U.S. isn't a priority. If we can understand what motivates people, from people in the government to those on the corporate boards, we can continue to survive by threatening their profits and keeping a close eye on them.
Good luck in the coming year.
