#1 Won't work. Those robots require electric power. Obama is doing whatever he can to cause the cost of power to skyrocket at the same time China is going on a power plant building binge. Obama currently has 20% of US generating capacity to be taken off line by Jan 1, 2015. There is no way we can compete with robotic plants here compared to robotic plants in China.

#3 If you want employment to continue it's even more important to drop the attachment to things in boxes AKA manufacturing, and to free the workers from damaging employment, spending and (most)saving/investment taxation, and tax rent seeking instead. This allows workers to exchange their time enhancing things produced mechanically, without the gooseberry state interrupting.

#4 So when is the Bammer or Romney going to come out in public support of a nation-wide, NASA-suppor "NATIONAL SPACE/STAR UNIVERSITY" AGENDA to begin the intensive orientation of the entire US School, University, + Industrial-Commercial Sectors towards Space Curricula + Skills Training???
By extens, CHEAP CONSUMER NUCLEAR ENERGY OR JOINT NUKE-GREEN TECHS ["Green-Nuke" = "Gruke"?].
The Bammer or Romney shouldn't even have to think about it.
D *** NG IT, HIDE THE CAR GAS + LAST NIGHT'S DEEp-FRY CHICKEN OIL, THE GRUKIES ARE COMING, THE GRUKIES ARE COMING!
