I am not talking about oil, though that is a valid criticism.

I am talking about bringing back American manufacturing.

More. And more, “American” companies make all their things in China. In effect becoming Chinese companies.

We need our own businesses again.

We need taxation on imports, we need to perhaps even do something to require local content.

We have been on the wrong side of “free trade”.

It is time for us to look out for America, and American businesses.

Not slum for American companies, which make money by sending jobs overseas.

American jobs.

Glad you realized the idiocy of your original tariff idea.

You said more than 50% of our stuff is imported.

You don't help your cause when you make ridiculously inaccurate claims.

I agree. But your fix of ever bigger, more intrusive government is wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.
