For a Change.
President Donald Trump wants to fix the nightmare mess that is DC’s crony globalist fake “free trade” – and conservatives all across the nation are up in arms.
Calm down, Leftists – “up in arms” is a figure of speech. Were this an actual emergency – like, say, Democrat murder capitols like Chicago or Baltimore or a Bernie Sanders supporter attempting to murder baseball-playing Republican Congressmen and their staffers – we would let you know. We always do – not that you ever do anything helpful about any of it.
A lot of really great conservative thinkers – are very, very angry with Trump’s tariff threat.
(Please note: They at this point remain threats – not tariffs. Read “The Art of the Deal.” Very often you threaten, but never enact – the threat is enough to better the deal.)
And as much as I like and respect so very many of these conservative thinkers – they are all very, very wrong.
A lot of what you get from them is a lot of talking points – spewed in Tourette’s Syndrome fashion. “Tariffs are taxes!” “Protectionism is bad!” “Free trade is good!”
The very obvious secret is – I agree with all of these points.
The other very obvious secret is – none of them apply to what DC pretends is “free trade.” More
