"In the past quarter century, America has turned to seeking profit atany cost thanks to the greed of many of our multinational corporations.We Americans are the world′s largest consumer economy. Because of unfairtrade policies, we import most of what we consume from countries where health, safety, and labor conditions are often like slavery by Americanstandards. I fully support Todd Lipscomb′s efforts to supportsmall, family–owned American manufacturers."
