Come out of the closet for Trotsky, Team Red. We all know you want to.
Yep. Especially since Trotsky is the inspiration for the modern-day GOP.

I don't think people quite understand what an enormous issue we have.
Does the US government own that pipe brand? Nope.

It is strictly the business of the aggrieved party and not the business of the government or the income theft victim.

That is a "if you smelt it you dealt it" fabrication.


The only Marxists in this joint (country) are the progs. They gravitate toward any IST like moths to a bug light. ZZZZZZZZZZT another one bites the dust.

TDS prevents rational thought.
Frigging idiots.

99.9% of Republicans ARE progs--including Trump.

Thomas Massie is about the only one who's not.

And which of our future hopeful Presidents have come out and said they will remove these tariff's once they get in office ?

Biden worked under Obama, who was generally in favor of free(r) trade. You never heard of Obama incessantly threatening China with tariffs, did you. While I can't say for certain Biden would do the same, I'd say chances are he would.

Your opinion is nice and all but it doesn't count

We know where Sanders and Warren stand...they both said in the past they supported tariffs but lately they've been silent.

Harris has yet to answer the question which was asked of her several times over the past year.
Maybe she doesn't know what a tariff is ?

Some of the lesser candidates view climate change and human rights violations more important than tariffs.

If taxes are passed onto consumers then why wasn’t the same true for the corporate tax cuts, did anyone see any 20% tax cuts from any of these corporations. Where oh where did those tax cuts go.
