I have a question for presidential and congressional candidates about the high rate of unemployment. My question has to do with the complete disappearance of jobs due to both modern technology and the greed of corporate America. Undoubtedly, the economy in general has a lot to do with it, but, in my view, the completely unchecked American capitalism that no one is willing to put under control is the mother of all problems that we face today.

So my question is: How can a president — regardless of party — create private-sector jobs when the workers have been replaced by robots and corporate America, along with Wall Street, is moving factories and outsourcing jobs to foreign countries to avoid paying taxes and to fill its pockets at the expense of the American worker?
