It should be said that "average Americans" have actually been voting with their money for globalism for decades now. The average American prefers franchise restaurants to mom and pops joints, an import car to a domestic, a trip to Walmart or the Home Depot rather than the corner hardware store, etc., etc.. However, now that globalism has "come back home to roost", Americans doth protest. It was all a big mistake, we didn't know that this was the consequence of our spending/voting habits! Americans "want their cake and eat it too"!
And since the average American prefers to learn their history from About.com rather than DomainOfMan.com, I suppose all this preaching is in vain!! Enjoy the "World Series" of "Smash and Grab" economics.
