    We should impose some amount of tariffs. They use their banks to monkey with our currency, they have the benefit of near slave labor, they have the benefit of extremely lax environmental laws; we can compensate for that. There's nothing wrong with it.

    Buffett is for sure an ass, but he's not a sovereign country. He doesn't affect the system as much as China can do by them constantly using their banks. Furthermore, before China joins the 1st world nations, it should take care of its own. Do what's right for their people and their people's prosperity. As for our side, while free trade is nice and we should work towards those means, free trade will have to be free from purposeful manipulation of the market. If one side does such, it's not unreasonable for the other side to protect themselves.

    Contradiction. Signatory of many FTAs but practices protectionism.

    In order to do so I must know what you mean by alleged. The sentence that you used it in is contradictory. You say that you don't deny it and yet you call it "alleged". So either you don't know the meaning of the word "alleged" or you don't believe that they do treat their people like crap...which means that you do deny it. So....????

    In fact that whole sentence is also contradictory to your opening sentence. If you didn't know what I meant then why put that statement in?

    I must know what you mean or to make your statements non-contradictory in order to address this...

    "As china gets richer it can afford to treat them well. As classes gain upward mobility they also gain rights."

    Otherwise I'm just "assuming" about what you mean. And you know what they say about what happens when you "assume" something right?

    Except that they purposefully use their state run banks to manipulate our currency which is in fact a backdoor tariff. They aren't welcoming us with open arms, the Communist party sees dollar signs and manipulates the system to keep it rolling it at the cost of the prosperity and wealth of their own people.
