    Absolute nonsense. Modernized and self sufficient foreign economies (such as the numerous examples built up primarily through the practice of free trade) are beneficial to everyone they subsequently trade with, and a necessity in a global economy. I don't think the majority of Americans would like to see the results of a drastic decrease in foreign purchasing power, especially seeing as export transactions make up such a significant portion of our annual gdp.
