I am a Manufacturing Guy

Most of my career has been in manufacturing. I believe companies should be free purchase what they need to operate and would fight to keep government from interfering unless we were at war.  I resent the US State Department for trading away our rights to foreign governments in exchange for some Left Wing ideological mandate they want to impose.  Customers and vendors have operated for centuries and don’t need government to help.


Governments should be free to serve the will of their own people. The fact that most governments have some level of corruption led us to issue corporate policies banning bribery. I saw these everywhere in the 1960s as we set up manufacturing plants in other countries. I don’t mind companies establishing policies dealing with employee behavior, but I did recognize that US companies were vulnerable to caving in to foreign corruption.


US corporations had avoided putting plants and offices in unstable countries and security measures to avoid kidnapping were adopted.  These were corrupt, violent countries and US companies were cautious about establishing operations because they had seen that companies had been seized by governments that became communist after a coup or civil war.


Foreign countries began to require companies to put manufacturing plants and offices in their countries if they wanted to sell their goods and services to the citizens of these countries.
