Humvee

The United States is replacing the Humvee in the Army and Marine Corps.  These powerful vehicles have been a standby in the Armed Forces for 25 years.  It is important that we keep our industrial base intact so we can continue to build vehicles for our defense.

Too much of our industrial base is gone.  Too much of our industrial base is being sold to overseas companies.  We need to reverse this process and bring both jobs and industry back to America.  It's easy for foreign companies to come in and buy an American company and then close it down.

We must cut taxes.  We must cut regulations.  Too many feel good regulations drive jobs out of the USA.  We used to have the largest merchant marine in the world.  Now we have almost nothing.  We had many good ideas on how to make it safer, and how to protect the rights of the workers.  We regulated them out of existence.   Now our goods are carried by foreign carriers, that we have little control over and essentially no Americans work in that industry; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
