...Outsourcing is a means of getting more final output with lower cost inputs, which leads to lower prices for all U.S. firms and families. Lower prices lead directly to higher standards of living and more jobs in a growing economy....

From the Heritage Foundation on the wonders of Outsourcing

You know I used to really be against outsourcing because I was a little naive about the ways of the world and the benefits of globalization. You see, I used to think that outsourcing took jobs away from Americans and sent them to other countries were there was little or no worker protections, low environmental standards, and horrendously low wages. I know, I know, how could I think this way?

Well, I will let you in on something else. I used to think that millions of jobs would be lost to outsourcing. I used to think that high tech jobs would be sent to places like China and India. It was a stupid way to look at things and not very sophisticated, I know now.

But now I can tell you I see the light. I now see the benefits to outsourcing, and I think I have a great idea on how to utilize those benefits to help solve our political problems here at home. Like many of you, I am tired of having to pay for politicians that say one thing, and then when elected, do another. I am tired of paying a high price for a congressman, a senator, or even the President and all of their costly staff and security. American taxpayers put out all of this money for our politicians and what do we get? Well we get politicians that are also taking huge sums of money from special interests. Yep, they call Congress the Congressional Millionaires Club since nearly all of them are millionaires. Its easy to figure out how they got that way?

But if we could outsource our politicians then we "would be getting more final output" and that would "lead directly to higher standards of living and more jobs in a growing economy." Wow!! This is so simple that even a simple person like myself has finally figured it out. After performing a cost/benefit analysis, I am convinced that this idea of outsourcing our politicians would really pay off. We could be drawing from the finest minds and characters from around the 3rd world and other growing economies at a much reduced cost. Presently we are only getting a little better than a common criminal from our American source of politicians. But if we get our politicians and government operations from various parts of the world then we could be getting some of the best that the world has to offer. Not only that, we could likely be getting a higher quality of government for pennies on the dollar.

I know it may seem strange having our Congress in India or the White House in China but with the speed of technology and the need to utilize global resources from around the world then it only makes sense. Some may consider it somehow unpatriotic utilizing an American government from other parts of the world but those people that think like that are living in the past when national pride and national boundaries mattered.

No, what matters now, and in the future, is getting the best value for our dollar, euro, amero or whatever our money will be called in the future. A big benefit of this outsourcing of our politicians and government will be that they will be so much cheaper to buy off by big corporations. No longer will the cost of goods for the American consumer have to include the high price of buying off politicians and governmental regulators. Instead, multinational corporations can get this new globalized American government to do their bidding at a much reduced cost. It will likely be just as easy to get a new outsourced government to sell out the American people in the same way the old, supposedly patriotic, politicians sold out the American people.

So if outsourcing the Federal government is such a great idea, you might be thinking, why not outsource state and local governments?

Now you got the idea. I think we can just as easily outsource state and local governments and even the judicial branches of government.

But some traditionalist and sentimentalists may like the illusion of a democratic government with elections. Well for those that still get excited every time they hear a candidate lie to them, I want to assure them that we can still have elections. We will just have candidates from around the world lie to us just like the ones in this country do.

But you might be wondering, where will we get our candidates from?

Well we will get them just like we do now. We will have multinationals and the really wealthy sponsor them in the same Republicrat system. We will have the special interests continue to do what they do now and that is tell them what to say and what positions to take. When one of the outsourced politicians do get elected then we will have the special interests write the bills to sponsor and tell them how to vote. The beauty of all of this is that nothing has to change but the cost of the political establishment.

But what about the constitutional requirement of the President being a natural born citizen, you might also be thinking?

According to President Bush and the NeoCons, the constitution is "just a god-damned piece of paper." Today the constitution has been shredded and there is little left to it anyway. So I don't think we should pay any more attention to that provision of the constitution than we do to the Bill of Rights or the clause about Congress controlling the printing and the money supply.

So I am convinced this is the way of the future and I hope you will join me in my vision and the world can be as a New World. I now love Globalization!
