Presidential Candidate Charles Skelley: The Won-2-3 Plan "Fixes the US Economy by Fixing Manufacturing"

After winning 50 votes in the 2008 Arizona GOP primary, Republican Charles Skelley is back for another shot at winning the hearts and minds of Arizona Republicans.

Here's his platform:

THE WON-2-3 PLAN — FIXES THE US ECONOMY BY FIXING MANUFACTURING

Part 1: Defining the core US economic problems in 2011

This WON-2-3 plan is named after Wealth of Nations, Book 2, Chapter 3

Adam Smith's "macroeconomic" principles (from Book 2, chapter 3, of Wealth of Nations) can be used to solve interrelated US economic problems of high structural unemployment, huge Trade Deficits, unsustainable Federal Budget deficits, and entitlements. Putting additional people to work in the US Manufacturing sector will improve all four of these issues simultaneously.

The US Manufacturing sector lost 5.8 million jobs during 1998-2011; and the US now has a $700 Billion/year Trade Deficit for goods. (i.e. The Sep 2011 Trade deficit for goods was $59 Billion.) If these millions of lost US Manufacturing jobs are not replaced quickly, then the huge US Trade Deficit will soon ruin the value of all US dollars.
