But, he adds in a "liberal" touch: he wants a generous welfare state to smooth over the dislocations caused by his otherwise libertarian...

Tea Party Congress isn't extreme enough for Club for Growth (Allen West, David McKinley, Lou Barletta) - 05/17/12

... "Limit Davis Bacon", support free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama, and South Korea, and several more. Even borderline-crazy extremist Allen West of Florida wasn't extreme enough for the Club: he only sided with them 64% of the time. Meanwhile, good-on-immigration Lou Barletta of Hazleton, Pennsylvania fame only sided with the Club 47% of the time. One of his sins was failing to "[c]ut...

... college. 4. Martinez supported free trade agreements, and suggested immigration reform through a "piecemeal" approach including the DREAM Act and increasing the H1B limit. 5. On free trade, Will (needless to say) agreed with Martinez and said that the more prosperous a country is the less chance their citizens will try to come here. Except, Will seems to have forgotten that NAFTA is one of the...

How "centrist" will No Labels be on immigration? - 11/26/10

... that 53% of those surveyed said free trade hurts the United States. Alarming, but hardly surprising given the narrative of our politics.

China to overtake U.S. in manufacturing output in 2011 - 06/23/10

... immigration can be applied to free trade as well, and some of those steps are very easy such as leaving comments. Those who push "free trade" and gutting the U.S. manufacturing base need "little helpers" to push their agenda.

Glenn Reynolds says [1] "FREE TRADE: A jobs program that works", which links to "Trade is a jobs program that works" [2] from the site "Bankrupting America". That's run by an organization called "Public Notice", and the person behind both is Gretchen Hamel who was formerly part of the U.S. Trade Representative's office in the George W Bush administration [3]. Yes, all of the above are big clues...

(link) comes this: Like a scorekeeper for the world, a tiny unit within the Bureau of Labor Statistics tracks globalization's winners and losers, and the results are not always pretty for the United States. Manufacturing jobs here, for example, have fallen faster since 1979 than in Canada, Germany or Japan....
