It took me a while to get to this point at 8:00, so thank you for your patience in letting me talk it out. Here is my conclusion:

I don't want a president who says, "Vote for me and I will create more manufacturing jobs."I don't want a president who believes he knows what the economy SHOULD look like. This opens up the door for more government directives and controls to manipulate the economy to his liking.

For instance, if he thinks there should be more manufacturing in America, will he support tariffs? Will he support tax breaks for certain companies and not others? Will he punish companies that invest in new technologies that result in a loss of manufacturing jobs? Will he support bailouts for manufacturing companies that are going out of business? The sky is the limit...but these aren't conservative principles.

If someone is arrogant enough to believe they know what the perfect economy looks like, they're arrogant enough to control us to achieve their vision.

Conversely, I want a president who says, "Vote for me and I will support capitalism, free markets and free people." If that results in more manufacturing, which is probably will, great. But really, no one knows what the "perfect" economy looks like. The best thing to do then is to leave it up to all of us to make our own decisions, free from government coercion.

Here is the 8:00 hour:

We also manufacture more than ever before, and more than Brazil, Russia, India and China combined.
