    So, if you support Trump's Tariffs....

    Do you also support the Carbon Tax? Or, vice versa.

    Also, if you support one but not the other, why? Do explain.


    I support neither. Why? Because I oppose all such interventionist bull****.

    Are you ok with our trading partners placing tariffs and value added taxes on American products?

    See, I don't like tariffs..... obviously... I'm a free trade, free market kind of person.

    But it isn't free trade or the free market when we allow ALL countries of the world to put regulations and tariffs on our goods freely without consequence.

    We are in a trade war... we just aren't fighting back.

    I don't pretend to know the right answer.... but at the VERY least Trump is actually addressing this issue that all the Democrats and a lot of republicans refuse to even acknowledge... they are all complacent on our corporations stay happy while the U.S. economy dies slowly from a thousand paper cuts.

    It also doesn't help when our biggest trade partner is Communist China, with a controlled economy they can manipulate at will so as to always be able to undercut the lowest non-controlled economy bidder.

    As I've said elsewhere, encouraging trade with China is like inviting a cheetah to a horse race...the horses are running to be first to the finish line...the cheetah is trying to catch the horses and eat them. That eventually leaves the cheetah the only one left in the race.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Congratulations GOP voters; you elected a complete imbecile named Drumpf to the office of POTUS. The term imbecile was once used by psychiatrists to denote a category of people with moderate to severe intellectual disability, as well as a type of criminal.

    I don't see the two as related in any way.

    I mean, are we having a problem producing carbon because some other country is overproducing and dumping carbon on the market? Is that why people want a carbon tax?

    I don't think so.

    Of course you don't.

    Actually the carbon tax would have created high paying jobs. Steel and aluminum tariffs not so much. But, I oppose both, since both are economic disasters to other sectors. And, hence, the similarity.

    Over regulation is an economic disaster. Do you oppose that, as well? Do you detect a similarity?

    I like clean air and fresh water. Both are impacted by steel production and the smelting of aluminum.

    Let me guess. You have never been in a plant that produced either one. Amirite?
