Re: We're all Chinese now....

Well, tariffs are certainly protectionist.  Tariffs were one of the root causes of the Civil War - the South wanted them and the North did not. 


As I understand it, you would be happy if poor people from developing countries were not allowed to sell their cheap goods here so that we could buy expensive items we made.  I suppose then we'd have a TV industry, a clothing industry, etc. but we'd pay three times as much for the goods.


Well, I'm not going down this road because if you have an ideology no one is going to change it.


And we wonder why Southern farmers and the rest of the nation don't agree on ag policies.  They love target prices.
