    Basically the story says he's gonna have too lie to us about free trade and how globalism is somehow good for us........Heard all the lies before.
    Too late to turn back?
    We must continue over the falls???

    It's not too late.
    It is for the elite of the top 1%.
    We don't exist to be their dogs.

    You want world trade?
    You pay the world our pay and require every single cost and regulation for every import.
    No leaving for lower pay and standards.
    That picks the world up.
    The current practice brings the whole world down for an elite group to gain......the same group pulling Obama's puppet strings.
    I can't wait till Trump gets in....then we fired them.

    Basically that would be an import tariff.
    You'll never convince another country to accept what we dictate to them.

    How are we suppose to compete with third world wages when they get paid pennies for the dollars that are made here.. That is why Trump wants a import tax.. To level the playing field.. But the gods to be are scaring people that their favorite items in Walmart will no longer be able to be afforded..

    While I agree our jobs are lost to the cheap labor.
    And I agree the playing field must be leveled.
    Tell me exactly how items sold at bean's local Walmart won't cost more if an import tax is placed on them ?

    My opinion ... less paid to the corporate elites, the executives, those overpaid and under performing people that suck the lifeblood from every company.
    No one man is worth millions ... none are worth billions. That is what you have with the Walton's. And many others.

    The FairTax would impose a 23% tax on imports, and because all taxes are removed until point of purchase our export products would be tax free.

    Nobody will buy our products, and the black market will thrive with people like you being the biggest customer.

    Well your paying the tax now so there must be a black market.

    American products for export would have tax removed that is currently embedded and cannot be removed making them 23% cheaper than today.

    Sure ... they will remove the tax ... then the corporations will increase the their bottom line with extra profit.
    If you trust them it's no wonder your as gullible as you are.
