First, we have free trade with Canada. Japan does not allow free trade. That is my major beef. GM and Ford have ZERO assembly plants in Japann. GM and Ford have ZERO auto dealers in Japan. Do you even get how onerous that is? No because you have bought the Japanese kool aid. Regarding GM bad decisions. What were they exactly? GM was just caught with not enough liquidity to get past the economy created by the 2008 financial collapse. If that didn't happen, the government help would not have been needed. Remember, at that time there was NO private credit available worldwide. So Obama then put GM into his very special Bankruptcy and takes a stock equity share,and then promptly shows us how bad of a fiduciary he is by prematurely selling the equity for a $10B loss. So yes, I am completely supportive of the largest automotive economic engine in the United States. I have no problem with Toyota, except that they get to benefit from our nation and we do not in Japan. Screw Japan!!
