~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
If Trump intends to ramp up the tariff war even further he really needs to be aware of this article. I posted the link because it's not from some far left site. It's AEI.
“It’s very clear, based on how they lost seats in the Upper Midwest, that declining agricultural markets likely led to the overturning of the GOP majority in the House,”
I believe that the US can lose this "tariff war" w/ China if for only one reason: Election Cycles
China can simply weather this storm by simply waiting out Trump's first term. The GOP did lose the HoR after all regardless the reason. China, since it is a totalitarian (communist) state, they don't have the "stigma" of free elections. They NEVER answer suffer any consequences that way. The Chinese people have NO say. And if they ever express any grievance at all - then they're dead! Or at the very least, sent to hard labor for the rest for their lives (same thing).
Between the ransing hourly wages to $15/hr to drop a basket of fries and now the tariff hikes - the price of groceries alone is becoming a horrifying experience.
And now the first wave of the illegal mob has reached the border. Will the TAXPAYERS burden continue to grow along w/ our Debt?
Btw, France and Germany are talking about establishing their own unified army. To that I say "YAAAAY!!!!"; "FINALLY!!!". When did WW2 end, almost EIGHTY years ago, right? And, the Soviet Union's "Wall" that separates East and West Germany came down almost 30 years ago too, right? We...the US TAXPAYERS...have been PAYING the bills for NATO, Japan and other nations for over 70 yrs now. Yet the US gets NO respect from the UN. Yet another far left global entity that the TAXPAYERS are also forced to support!
If the Euros want to protect and defend their own we shouldn't only encourage them - we should push it by first redeploying the bulk of our troops. Leaving only enough to protect our assets until they've been relocated. Second, SELL them OUR nukes. That is IF those democrat scoaislists even want them.
WHY should we even want to stay there. Their every move shows they favor globalism using "glpbal warming " as their mantra; and Sharia law is growing in leaps and strides. It's also obvious that they desire to stmulate the Russian economy by buying their natural gas. And some of those $Bs go towards Iran - which then trickles down to the terrorist networks in Syria, Palestine, Iraq and wherever else christians and jews around the world.
The world is reshaping right before our eyes. Where will we be by 2030? The panorama doesn't look too good. But that's just me.
Btw, the first wave of that "caravan" to arrive at the Tijuana border is the l-b-g-t-xyz group.
So, they get to claim "asylum"? What happened to the crying women and children trying to escape certain death by the gangs in Honduras and El Salvador, etc? It looks like those l-b-g-xyz's have universal entitlements above everyone else - ncluding children and their mothers, huh! If those bllsht XYZers gain entry here it's over in 2020! jmho
