Impressive numbers. Let's hope the powers-that-be can keep this company running through this economic downturn and come out the other side a leaner, meaner automaker for it...

There is no doubt that most American Companies can compete globally if we have fair trade not free trade. We need change from a political level to keep true manufacturing jobs in America. We are going to turn into a service job nation with dependency on other countries for our income. And what ever high paying service job that can be outsourced, medical, accounting, lawyer, engineering and so on will be outsourced to India.
