I want income taxes eliminated.

Which is healthier for a country: Penalizing foreign product purchases or penalizing reportable income?

These globalist GOPe clowns cannot go away soon enough. They do far more to undermine conservatives than they do liberals.

>> carry out an agenda focused on free trade

The disingenuous “free trade” agenda.

How about “free trade” among states without sales tax?

So, do they make money from China- or are they being blackmailed?

Someone should look into it.
China is big on getting ‘the goods’ on important people.
