Naaah, you just need to leave South Carolina. People in red states just don t realize how much of a role their state leadership has in making their states economic hell-scapes. Take Mississippi for example. The MS state government knows that if they can keep their population poor, under-educated and angry, then they ll counterintuitively vote for the same leadership that keeps them poor, under-educated and angry, every single time.

You got it backwards – that would be blue states. Actually it’s “the establishment” politicians, blue and red. Having been in manufacturing for over 30 years, working in global companies, I’ve had a front row seat. While automation has reduced labor, by a 4 or 5 to 1 margin jobs are lost to low cost labor countries. Put another way, of the 100% jobs lost over the last 30 years, automation caused 20-25%, Asia and Mexico the rest.
