The government is so retarded, they can't even come up with a way to fix the economy. I'm 12 years old, and I thought of this. STOP MAKING SH*T IN CHINA! IF YOU MAKE IT HERE, PEOPLE WILL HAVE F***ING JOBS!
Since your 12, your ignorance is forgivable. Acting like you have a clue what you're talking about... not so much.
First off, the government has almost no influence over where goods are produced. Short of a complete ban on imports from China, theres not a damn thing that could be done about it.
Secondly, and most importantly, why the hell WOULD we stop using Chinese labor? Ethical issues aside, theres the fact that they're willing ot work significantly cheaper than any American would. IF in some bizarro world we stopped using Chinese labor, the price of goods would skyrocket... Hell, take the clothing industry for example... theres a good reason why clothes aren't made in America anymore...
Health conditions were horrible for workers, the government stepped in and required a very high standard for worker health saferty, as a result it became far too costly to make clothing in the USA. It became impossible to make a profit and now we just get our clothes from the Chinese who...
a) Do not have the regulation
b) Work cheaper
And honestly, I have a very hard time believing there are no jobs out there... More accurately, people aren't willing to get off there asses and do the jobs that do exist. Why should they when the government's solution to every problem seems to be "Throw money at it"?
Wanna fix this country? I've got two solutions that would go a long way...
1) Families only get assistance from the government for the first two kids. Anything after that and you're on your own. Welfare queens can starve for all I care, I work for my money and it doesn't need to be going to human trash who refuses to.
2) In any civil lawsuit, the loser pays all court fees. Lets see how many people file pointless lawsuits if this happens. There was once a pregnant woman who sued her doctor... why? Because of stretch marks... Who would imagine that pushing a living human being out of your body would cause some stretching...
Maybe if the government wasn't throwing my tax money at idiots and trash that don't deserve it, it could be used for something useful.
