Thoughts on free trade


As an American worker, I hate free trade.  Free trade means I have to work harder, longer and smarter.  It means I have to innovate, be flexible and think ahead.  I can't trust promises of cushy pensions or "cradle to grave" employment.  I have to be willing to take risks and start over from scratch.  Above all else, I can't be complacent.

That bites.

Dammit, Free Trade means I have to live up to the same standards my parents lived by, that make this country great.
