    depends....is the product unfairly subsidized here to start with? Did we steal the industry from another country throwing its economy into turmoil?

Get it?
    If the price is the same. Problem is it never is. That is exactly why you buy foreign made goods.

    No our markets are a lot bigger then their's and as such they have a lot more to lose than we would.
    Wrong again, it has happened many times in the past and further they could shut down all our manufacturing of products in foreign countries. Like shutting down GM from making cars in Europe as an example. You are asking for a trade war.


    And what I am saying is that it was a big mistake to have gone down that road and shipped our manufacturing capacity overseas in the first place. That whole whack notion was sold with the snake oil that you could create an economy based on services.
    Stick to your isolationist and our economy go bust.

    Bastardized communism? How can you bastardize something that hasn't even come close to existing?

    Because they were/are not pure communism- hence the bastardized observation.

    Communism (from Latin communis – common, universal)[1][2] is a socioeconomic system structured upon the common ownership of the means of production and characterized by the absence of social classes, money
    - They literally never got close.
    States run by Communist parties that adhere to Marxism–Leninism, or some variation thereof, refer to themselves as socialist states. The Soviet Union was the first to proclaim itself a "socialist state" in its 1936 Constitution and a subsequent 1977 Constitution. Another well-known example is the People's Republic of China, which proclaims itself to be a "socialist state" in its 1982 Constitution of the People's Republic of China. In the West, such states are commonly known as "communist states" (though they do not use this term to refer to themselves).

    That is not happening.

    Reasonable regulation is necessary.

    Not mental gymnastics.
    Communism, by definition, is a stateless, classless, money less society with collective ownership of production. Hell, even the USSR and china identified as socialist states, marxist-leninist states.. They never claimed to have achieved communism.

    That indicated the method of investigation was suspect, which is completely different that reasonable regulation.
