Let's Talk About Jobs

The presidential candidate debates on television have included little or no mention of what is widely conceded to be the number-one issue: jobs. The unemployment figures remain unacceptably high, and the figures for young people are truly shocking. The general unemployment rate has been about 9% for the past couple of years. In the second quarter of 2011, the unemployment rate for U.S.-born young adults (ages 18 to 29) who have completed high school, the rate was double that: 18.2%.

It's a real example of media bias that Mainstream Media newscasts on young adults' unemployment fail to mention the fact that an estimated seven to eight million illegal aliens are holding jobs in the United States. Obama recently announced a decision to add many more to this total, which will put them in direct competition with unemployed and underemployed young Americans.

The Obama Administration is reviewing the cases of 300,000 illegal aliens currently in deportation proceedings. "Reviewing" means that they will not be deported, but instead will be invited to apply for work authorization. That's an Obama euphemism for amnesty.

I'd like to hear our presidential candidates address the disaster of the U.S. establishment's goal to push us into an open-borders global economy. Let's hear them discuss the idiocy of the globalists' propaganda of recent years, namely, that we should look to the European Union, and its common currency, the euro, as a model for a North American Union and perhaps even a common currency for us called the amero. I want to hear our presidential candidates tell us their plan to deal with the unemployment of young men. Let's hear our presidential candidates tell us how they will rebuild our exceptional nation, with military superiority that can defend our people against all evil dictators.
