    So it's your contention that all trade agreements/treaties prior to 1974 have all expired or have been made null since?

    Delegation of authority to the President goes back at least to 1934.

    OK... doesn't actually answer the fact that you are saying no trade happened prior to 1974.

    Sorry, but I never said no trade before 1974. I said the authority has been continuous since 1974 and the list of treaties in force includes none before 1974. Trade does not require trade agreements.

    no... no you didn't. You recently have been trying to revise your statement in the goal post moving effort... nice try though. If that is actually your position, ok. But it's not what you said initially. It's ok to clarify, but it's not really ok to make a claim you never said something that you did say.

    I have no idea what your point is, but my position has not changed.
