They'll use tariffs against us in return. We want to sell stuff to them as well you know. Do we really need trade wars?

1 That bill wouldn't eliminate the CORPORATE TAX

2 it wouldn't install/increase import tarrifs on ALL IMPORTS

The most effective incentive would be to produce your product in American factories with American workers or have your corporate charter ended. Corporations are Created by the State and can be Killed by the State. Past time to eliminate a few of these traitorous "individuals".

That may be a plank in the New Populist Party platform.

As much as I agree with your sentiment I don't think that protectionism is going to work.
Why do you think they won't retaliate? I'm sure we sell something to them.
What makes you think they won't impose tariffs on our export products in return?

I agree. Unfortunately if we try to impose tariffs on those who send jobs overseas, they're liable to throw a hissy fit, and move their WHOLE operation out of the country, and pull the proverbial "boy gets p***ed off and takes his ball and goes home! Look, I don't begrudge anyone for making their way in the world, or trying to become successful! What I can't stand is the downright GREED from some of these rich fat cats. Not to mention that they're firmly OK with paying someone $0.10 an hour, while polluting the environment, in horrible working conditions tells me that they slavery is still alive and well in this world, and they condone it! And at the expense of our fellow countrymen!
