Seem to believe it's good for the US to have huge trade deficits, unfair tarrifs, theft of IP, overseas manufacturing, no borders and high complicated taxes?

Because they're not very intelligent. That's what happens when you think with emotions instead of your brain.

Well, it depends on WHICH Democrats you are talking about. If you are talking about politicians, it's becasue they are in bed with these countries and get rich cutting deals. (Not 100% Democrats though. GOPers do it, too. That's why you have Never Trumpers).

The voters have been lied to for so long, they don't know which end is up. They repeat the lies as if they are the gospel truth.

that is because the people that believe this also want a one world government, open borders everywhere, etc. they want this world to be completely open for everyone to move openly and easily about without borders. one government, no borders, no tariffs, one common law for everyone, etc.

OK, so media piracy is an issue. However, why is those that a number of the people who often speak out against are often silent on something else? You know, retroactive copyright extensions, copyright restorations, and trademarking the public domain. Copyright and public domain are counterparts to each other. Something is to be said about being against copyright theft but being silent on "public domain infringement", which is more of a practical or informal term vs. a legally-recognized term. At least we do have "false claims of copyright" that can somewhat cover public domain infringement. Heck, if you bring up to a person or organization like Walt Disney Pictures, arguably the most famous example of copyright maximalism, they might be silent on addressing public domain infringement.

you can have a trade deficit without the tariffs.

0% tariffs would still lead to the US having a trade deficit with china because it is cheaper to manufacture items there.

And the Republicans that controlled the House and Senate for two years did what about those issues?? Seems to me that President Trump is the only one willing to tackle them.
