Ah, I found one good point:

Outsourcing allows our businesses to make cheaper products TO COMPETE WITH SIMILAR FOREIGN GOODS.
(ex. japan sells a spoon for $0.50. If we make it here it's $2.00, if we make it in china, it's $.073. So our BUSINESSES can benefit by outsourcing.)... but that still hurts the workers...or, as they can be called...CONSUMERS!

I also think the "led paint" comment is not a good arguing point. I don't want to delve into deeper issues, but there are plenty of foreign products that don't harm people and there are plenty of products "built in the USA" that have had corners cut and had to be recalled.

I also did like the "what if we went to war" comment, and I've thought of that as well.

Anyone else?

Anyone have a good argument for?
