I say its time to slap equal tariff's on imported goods.  If Japan only allows X amount of US goods to be imported in a year, well then, we have the same amopunt on their shit, same with China. 

We definitely need to get out of the WTO, that has turned into the biggest "fuck the US" organization on the planet.  I'm sick of them saying the US raising tariffs is illegal, yet allow Europe and China to do the same damn thing, but the US can't.  Fuck that.  If China wants to limit the amount of US goods imported into their country(a comp[laint the US brought to the WTO in 2007 and lost of course), then we should copy them and limit their goods coming into the US(of course the WTO would say its wrong)

Standard of living is already declining...get ready for the big drop-ff if things do not turn around rather quickly.

Excellent point.

Silentkiller, I am not saying it's going to go away entirely, but there needs to be an incentive in place to buy American and a ramification for sending jobs overseas/importing instead of buying US.

Our ability to consume is what can actually get us out of this fucking mess.
