My Dear Fellow Americans:

I am begging you to listen to my plea. A quarter of a century ago a Presidential Candidate warned about a GIANT SUCKING SOUND coming from the South. Here is what he said back then:

“We have got to stop sending jobs overseas. It’s pretty simple: If you’re paying $12, $13, $14 an hour for factory workers and you can move your factory South of the border, pay a dollar an hour for labor,…have no health care—that’s the most expensive single element in making a car— have no environmental controls, no pollution controls and no retirement, and you don’t care about anything but making money, there will be a giant sucking sound going south.”

Less than 20 years after this quote, United States Taxpayers bailed out General Motors to the tune of about $50 billion. Today, 70% of the GM cars sold in the US are made outside the US. For those of you with a Common Core or Ivy League education, that means only 3 out of ten cars sold here are made here. More and more manufacturing is moving to Mexico, China, Vietnam, India Japan, and Germany. Even if wages were the same in Mexico, the United States could still not compete because of Obamacare, Taxes and regulations.

The government boot is on the necks of the tiniest businesses to the largest. The corner bakery can’t move to Mexico but Nabisco can and will. Oreo Cookies may soon taste like Sopapillas?

No politician, no newspaper, no radio host and no TV network mentioned how the so called fair trade agreements were sucking us dry until Donald Trump brought the problem to the forefront. Immediately all of the above rejected Trump like your body would reject a transplanted heart from an alligator.  NAFTA is a sucker’s deal much like the Iranian deal.

Some of the politicians are starting to do what politicians do: Promising to do what the leading candidate is promising to do. However, mimicking another candidate should not fool you.

If you think America will survive another 25 years while continuing to be the world’s sugar daddy and spending like there’s no tomorrow, you are simply not paying attention.

That Annapolis Graduate we should have listened to 25 years ago, did get almost 20,000,000 votes in a Presidential election where no candidate got more than 43%. If putting America First and making America Great Again speaks to you, stop dreaming about somebody who can act like a President and start supporting somebody who can be a President the world won’t run over.

With kind regards,
Gene McVay
