ThatsRight19, for more than 3,500 years of recorded history there was no record of a democratic republican nation. The USA began less than less than two and a half centuries ago.

The pace of human endeavors moves somewhat faster in our modern times. I previously responded to your's and LordSquidworth's question in post #5:

I'm fully confident that Import Certificate policy would, for the USA be, superior to pure free trade or a tariff trade policy. I'm less confident that some nation experiencing chronic annual trade deficits, will finally adopt an Import Certificate policy and due to its success, other nations will do the same. Because USA isn't an Import Certificate nation, we who have the greatest trade deficits, suffer the greatest losses GDP and numbers of jobs.
ThatsRight19, to iterate: Due to our chronic annual trade deficits of goods, the USA now looses the most, and of all nations has the most to gain by adopting the Import Certificate policy.
