It surprises me how anti-free trade FR is.

Are tariffs not taxes that are then passed on to the consumer?

I do not want to pay more for imported goods to protect union scumbags here in Amerika.

There is an enormous amount of hostility toward pretty much any idea expressed by anyone here at any time, but the anti-free trade seems like the most puzzling — tariffs? No! That’s a tax! Tax breaks for more domestic energy production? No! That’s a subsidy! More open markets? No!
