Well since our minds are just all muddled with TDS, could you please explain to us 'rationally' how your assertion makes any sense in any rational way?

How many liberals are "up in arms" over the cost of Chinese goods? Who are these liberals? Frankly, I do not know any. Pointing out cause and effect is not "up in arms."

Do you think Trump canceled the Xmas tariffs for liberals? Really? I suspect not.

Trump was thinking about all the voters in rural areas who mostly shop at big box stores full of Chinese products. Liberals are not going to vote for him anyhow, so why would he care what they have to pay for anything? Trump has never cared about the majority of the country--just his base. One of his bozo aides told him he was going to ruin Xmas (I'm thinking Miller). You think liberals are all worried about Xmas presents or that Trump is worried about ruining liberals' Xmas day? I don't.

The thing about Trump is that he is transparently predictable. He's worried about losing votes from those independents that voted for him solely on the economy and have stated that if the economy tanks, they are not voting for him. That is how much people not in the base dislike Trump. No loyalty.

The liberals love to rail against "big corporations." What they never seem to appreciate is the fact that the government is the biggest corporation out there, and it suffers from the most abuse, corruption and waste of any big corporation in existence. Not to mention the least accountability, as the deep state has proven.

That also goes for your 401K and your paycheck deposits that buy new shares. For many that's automatic purchase of mutual fund shares.

Sander's proposal is $.50 for every $100 in trade..buy or sell. (.5% on stock transactions)

Looks like another case of Fox News myopia. The Republican tax cut added a trillion to the national debt.

Which is why the entire federal government should be abolished.

TDS is not a liberal condition.

the corporations didn't even see 20% tax cuts. Might be because they didn't get 20% ?
