Matclone, there have been more than peeps raised about issues like NATA, "free trade", the outsourcing of jobs, the demise of unions, and the decline of the middle class. It has just been to easy for the rich and powerful to redirect any outcry through media and political misdirection. I do not know how you feel about Lou Dobbs but he has taken up the fight and is relentless in exposing those that are attacking middle class America. I added a link that puts the battle in pretty plain terms. He speaks what many middle class people feel.
