BTW...Ross Perot was right about everything. I wish I’d voted for him in ‘92!

Good!
Perhaps we can scale back our military as well that is only there to protect their interests.
They complain so much about taxes then let them foot the trillions of dollars required to police global trade routes as well.

Yes
I remember the day very well when Perot was running along side slick willy and knew Clinton was FOS.
Perot was an American first. Everyone since then have been globalists that need to be burned at the stake.

He was right about it all. I'm proud to say I cast my first ballot for Ross Perot.

As an electrician in NYC we tend to use a lot of aluminum whether it be the metal jacket on wiring or conduit this trade war is not needed and will only end up hurting us in the long run. If pay in this country ever kept up with inlfation it might not be so bad. But since pay is still really low most on the bottom of in the middle will be hit harder add on top of that with social safety nets being cut and eventually taxes being raised once the temp tax cut goes away we will really be in it.

Read the facts from your own government about your supposed "mistreatment" by your biggest trade partner.

Exactly.

Wages have been stagnant for decades. A trade war will hurt Americans.

If wages haven't been stagnant for so long, it wouldn't be that bad.

Wages were high and climbing when we put this nation first prior to the last 30 years.
When Corporations went out all globalism, millions of workers had to adapt, and millions did, but many were left out in the cold as well. Millions of American workers were told to quit whining and adapt to a new world order of corporate globalism.

Now, when the shoe is reversed on the other foot where they now need to adapt in accordance with the best interests of this nation, corporations whine about it.

Zero Fs given.
