When was the last time we were on an equal playing field with trade and the rest of the world; if ever?   Colonial days……..maybe?   My knowledge of the economy and trade from that far back is not good.   Not taught much in school.   Oh, world history taught what each countries industrial strengths and resources were but not about fair or equal trade.

If you think we’ve been on a fair/equal playing field look in your closet.   Made in China, dominates.   You’d be hard pressed to find Made in the USA.   I would love to be visiting an average working Chinese home, look in their closet for “Made in the USA” clothing.   I doubt it would reflect the USA.   It isn’t just clothing, turn something over in your living room, what’s the label say?   Made in China or another foreign country.

I’d rather have a president trying to equal things out, and make some mistakes along the way………rather than do nothing; which has been our nations status quo for way too long.

Something is worth trying vs. nothing!

    Our politicians always amaze me in regards to trade issues. We have been stuck in a hole for I don’t know how long with deficit trade issues and foreign countries ripping us off – and these blankety blank politicians don’t want to try anything new – THEY JUST WANT TO CONTINUE DIGGING IN THAT SAME HOLE. It’s like if it doen’t work – we can try something else – GEE WHIZ. We need some new lions – who will roar – these have turned into butter

    Term limits can’t come soon enough.

    1. Our politicians, have been making these trade agreements/deals as a way of appeasement. Lets not upset or rock the boat with this other countries; its their nature to scam and screw you out of your/our money. Just look at these street markets, they’ll rob you blind. Same with trade……..especially with America/Americans.
