At today's "Insourcing American Jobs" forum, President Obama talked about his hope for the future:

I don’t want America to be a nation that’s primarily known for financial speculation and racking up debt buying stuff from other nations. I want us to be known for making and selling products all over the world stamped with three proud words:  “Made in America.”  And we can make that happen.

I don’t want the next generation of manufacturing jobs taking root in countries like China or Germany. I want them taking root in places like Michigan and Ohio and Virginia and North Carolina. And that’s a race that America can win. 

There are signs that the country might be moving closer to that vision, and the President is hard at work to help deliver it.

"[My] message to business leaders today is simple: ask yourselves what you can do to bring jobs back to the country that made our success possible," the President said. "And I'm going to do everything in my power to help you do it. We're going to have to seize this moment."

How to stop Outsourcing

I know I have minimized this problem big time, but doesn’t it make sense that, in exchange for granting patent protection of a new product to a US Company, shouldn’t the US Government provide job protection for US Citizens, at least through the prototype and pilot production of the new product, as well as full disclosure.

Ours is still the Government of the people, by the people and for the people isn’t it?
