You sound like a democrat.

I do agree that the tariffs are a government tax that is put in place to take care of a small group of people at the expense of the larger populous.



Versus gutting the middle class and cheap imports. China has risen from 3rd world status in about 40 years. That revolution was facilitated by the masters of the universe here in the West. It's time for other countries to pull their own damn weight. The welfare train needs to end.

That's an argument for angry, simpleton partisans like yourself.


The partisan angle doesn't work here.



It's an American angle.

Got it. More akin to socialism if you ask me.

The tariffs are very much socialism. The fact is that the jobs where people stood on an assembly line and put a widget in a hole are never coming back. You need to be trained in a craft and you have to move. Just like the miners going west to the California gold rush, people in old school industrial America will be required to relocate where the jobs are.

As a side point, what are the expectations that this tariff are going to bring and provide? Factories reopening? New factories? The timescale on most of those things are measured in decades.

I agree that they are socialist in nature. They subsidize and perpetuate whatever inefficiencies existed that cause the need for the subsidy in the first place. It’s also crony capitalism.

Not surprised to see the TDB sacrifice their principles and stick their thumbs up their collective asses.

Lol, I've supported punishment for China's predatory trade practices and blatant ip theft for the past 20 years.

Now, why are tariffs are socialist?

Tariffs were how the writers of the United States Constitution decided to fund the government.
