And by exploiters, I mean everyone trying to make money by shuffling dollars around or holding property instead of creating value. (read: stock & real estate markets, loans and banking) More and more people are trying to jump on the "do nothing useful and get rich bandwagon" while the group of hardworking naives willing to be exploited is shrinking. In short, everyone wants to sit on their ass and rent apartments for $250,000 a year while the rest of the country serves them their coffee, builds their cars, paves their roads, delivers their papers, refinishes their floors and collects their garbage all preferably for $7.25 an hour.

Wow, I sound like Karl Marx. Too bad his solution is bullshit.

I think some protectionism may be a good short-term solution, but really, America has some deep-rooted problems that aren't going to be sorted out any time soon -- namely, we've raised an MTV generation that's never gone hungry enough to have a work ethic.

NAFTA is all for the collectives not the individuals, a problem when these collectivists supporting it have a nerve to call it capitalism; when it's breaking the Free Trade exclusive right of adopting the constitution and becoming a state.
Even a violation of states rights.
I think it will be a problem, protecting wealth creation by the individual being unabridged, as long as they find it fine for politicians to vote themselves richer. Also as collective or corporate copyright of individual creation is tolerated when copyright must be limited as an individual right of the creative individual that creates a product, art, and so on.
Also permiting Corps to own DNA as a patent, when God or Chance created it.
