I'll buy whatever I very well please.

The American government needs to get the hell out of the way and let American companies sink or swim on their own until they can provide a competitive product.

However North America opens it's markets to foreign goods yet those same foreign nations have closed markets to our North American goods...

That is the problem....

This is economic war AND we must support our own corporations and not those in Asia, EU, etc...

Regardless, pouring money into a giant hole is not the way to solve the problem.

The Big Three are looking for loans that will be paid back. Sorry not the same thing as giving FREE money to the banks and financial institutions who created this problem to begin with...

We must do everything possible we can do to maintain what little we have left in the manufacturing sector...

Describing GM in North America as a giant hole is an understatement. It's mind boggling that GM North America expects to be bailed out while it's global operations from Brazil to China carry on with out missing a beat, what a scam. Just another international corporation holding tax payers hostage .

Canada and the United States should join under a EU agreement. (not Mexico)

Are economy is pretty much equal, dollar close to par, then enforce protectionism to countries outside the new union.

But why should it be the government giving them a loan? If they can't get it from the banks, then the banks must not consider it a safe investment. Why should the US government?

Then we will sell you a Chevy Spark in 2010 built in Korea and hide behind the made in America fable!

a million jobs.
probably not the best time to throw those out the door.

Politics.



1st year eceonomics proves trade benefits both sides, even US and China.
If the Americans really want to close the trade balance, put out better products
at better prices.
Or is Pat now afraid of competition ?

Not paying too much attention to the news are you???? Banks and credit institutions have tightened their belts.... Loans are very difficult to get. This is one of the reasons no one is buying cars....

How can a worker in Flint, Michigan or Windsor, ON compete with the wages paid in India or China...???? That's the big problem with global trade. North America is the most desirous consumer market in the world.

Why should we be the dumping grounds for countries who won't reciprocate?

Modern day warfare is now economic warfare.... Why should I give my hard earned Canadian dollars to Asia, China, Russia, India? Better to put my money back into North America...

IF or WHEN another 9-11 crisis hits North America it will NOT be Toyota, Honda, Sony or Panasonc who will be stepping in to assist us...
