Excuse  me—  but  I  am  very  confused  .

And   I  truly  don’t  mean  to  offend  anyone,

Although  I  myself  am  very  offended  by  the

Actions  of  my  own  Government .

But   herein   lies  my  confusion :

Why  do  so  many   people   come   to   America,

From   other   countries ;

Looking  for   work  —-

When  our  American   Government,  through  the

Act   of   N.A.F.T.A  ,

Has   sent   all   our   jobs   to   other  countries  ?

I  have  friends  of  all  nationalities ,   including

Mexicans .  But  why  have  so  many  Mexicans

Come  to  America  looking   for  jobs,

When  so  many  of  our  jobs  have  been  sent   to

MEXICO.????????????????

I  use  Mexico as  just  an  example.

America  was  once  the  leading   industrialized

Nation  on  the  globe.   Is  it  now?

Not  afta   NAFTA  !

America   used  to  be  one of,  if  not,   

The  Richest   nation  on  the  planet.

Is  it  now?    Not  afta   NAFTA   !!!

But  the  question  still begs  the  asking :

With  so  many  Americans  either  unemployed,  or  soon  to  unemployed —-   why  is  there ,  in  addition  to  this :

So  many  people  from  the  countries

Our  jobs  have  been  sent  to,

Standing  in  unemployment  lines  here. ???

Again, no  offence  to  anyone–

Except  our   often  clueless  politicians ,

And  our  greedy,  almighty-bottom-dollar-line

Corporate  America  Honchos

For  creating  this  financial  holocaust  .

Any  answers.????

Welcome  to  the  New  America–

The  Nation of  The  Unemployed  ….

Afta    N.A.F.T.A.

RESPECTFULLY   ,   LonnieRayFowler
