Trump to publish weekly list of crimes by immigrants
This will include crimes involving *legal* migrants, not just illegals. Does it feel like mid 1930s Germany yet, or what?

A great civilization is not kept alive by making easy cowardly decisions.

Every other country in the world does what's best for itself. Yet when USA does it now every fool think it's an outrage. Where did everyone get the idea that USA owes them everything? You've been played, and you've got it backwards.

@fielder

We should do what's good for us!

1. raise tariffs on trade to protect business and raise gov't revenue
2. countries raise tariffs to compensate losses
3. businesses losing profit overseas
4. internal investment lowers
5. only megalithic monopolies survive
6. America has aggregate losses

I do want America to be great, but shouldn't we try to work with countries to create purely free trade instead of causing these stand offs where everyone loses?

I'll admit it's an oversimplification, but higher tariffs unilaterally hurt inter-continental trade. Free trade isn't some pipe dream, FREE TRADE is why we revolted against Britain!!! And yes occasionally a tariff will be reasonable, but these GIANT protectionist spikes from a bunch of populists will only wreck economies.

Trump can fight China through other means, through legal commerce rules, through working with the WTO, but tariffs won't end well.

We're looking at a symptom of a problem. the disease is in our regulatory economy

fiedler you went too far when you attacked my friend brainbomb and i am not joking! there once was something called compassionate conservatism. besides art is part of a civilized society and conservatism must have that in mind as well otherwise we fall into the orbit of stalinism and there is nothing beneficial about that

"James: but your logic is simply wrong.... purely free trade is a naive concept, and would be disastrous."

Saying his logic is wrong is like saying 1+1 does not equal 2. The math shows that tariffs always create dead-weight losses.
CAPT Brad (40 D X)

you know we have internal tariffs, sale tax. if we use tariffs as a revenue source i am on board. especially when it is combined with the loss of our technological advantage. a good stiff tariff on cheap chinese solar panels and anything made there by apple is on my list.
