    You probably did jump in at the wrong time. :) I was initially arguing against the idea that a regressive income tax is somehow better than a tariff for...reasons. That said, there is a hidden cost to your ability to trade with someone across the ocean. That's the cost of the U.S. Navy. If the U.S. Navy quit protecting shipping lanes, either other countries would step up (and charge THEIR citizens the cost which would raise the cost of whatever it is you want to import), or merchant ships would have to arm themselves which would also raise the cost. And...it would probably become cheaper. Remember that Tom Hanks movie about the captain that hijacked by Somali pirates because all he had was a flare gun? I wonder how much his rescue by Navy SEALS cost? One merchant machine armed with a 50 cal and with the proper training could have avoided the whole thing.

    Bingo! For the life of me I don't get why some people would support an even more onerous income tax over broad tariffs. Let's tax the hell out of the U.S. economy to avoid taxing the foreigners? And sorry that "It hurts consumers" argument is nonsense. The idea of the "consumer economy" is nonsense. At some point if you aren't producing as a nation you are going under.

    I am not a time traveler, but maybe you and I are from alternative universes because I cannot think of a year in recent memory where somebody wasn't pushing for gun control. Or have you forgotten Sandy Hook or the Parkland Massacre? And Trump threw the NRA under the bus and hinted at supporting an assault weapons ban. So your point is...? By the way, this is the SECOND time Trump went on record supporting an assault weapons ban. The first time was in 2002 in his book "The America You Deserve." Trump thinks you "deserve" a for your assault weapons to be taken away. And here is the danger. A Biden will go full bore supporting gun control and pretty much the entire GOP will be reflexively against him. Trump got RAND PAUL to go a long (temporarily) with red flag laws! Why do you not understand how that is a bigger threat? The dems are expected to be for gun control. You just need a handful of republicans to go along with it and its game over. You know why we have a machine gun ban? It wasn't because of Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton or Barack Obama. It was because of Ronald Wilson Reagan.

    Let me get this straight. You quote Ron Paul for the idea of tariffs being bad but you support a tax for just being alive and making over the poverty level? That...that's your argument? A capitation tax is still an income tax. Ron Paul on user fees and tariffs versus the income tax. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6bAVJ6ZdnI That doesn't stop international merchants from pushing for war. It's not just the short term gains that some definitely make. It's the long term gains. The banana wars profited Dole long after the war was over.

    Is Mexico on the other side of the ocean? Is Canada? For your "free trade across the ocean" the rest of us pay for the U.S. Navy. Now I would complain about disbanding the Navy in place of a really good coast guard. Maybe a sub fleet. But none of this "protect the shipping lanes" nonsense. If you want all that done then you, not me, should have to pay for it.

    Only the U.S. citizens who choose to consume slave labor goods from overseas. And they only have to pay it if they buy through the cartel. You want to go to Mexico and buy something and come back, no tariff. If you are for open borders then you have a right to complain about a tariff. If you are for closed borders then tariffs are the user fee for the tyranny you want.

    Obama served two terms and didn't ban assault weapons or bump fire stocks. (Trump banned bump fire stocks). Obama in his two terms signed executive orders reversing bans on guns in federal parks and on Amtrak. A) That makes Trumps anti gun moves even more baffling. B) Compare apples to apples. Biden to Obama. If a Biden administration is like the Obama administration then it will be better on guns than Trump was.

    You're free to reject that the earth is round too. Cartels are typically led by groups of individuals. Still corporations fought for the right to be treated as a collective. But I'm all for doing away with corporate personhood. I reject ^that as absolutely false. If you don't want to pay a tariff, then don't. I already explained to you how to trade across borders without paying tariffs. The biggest barrier to tariff free cross border trade is "border security" and not the tariffs themselves. I'm curious. Are you for open borders? Anyway you can avoid tariffs the way people doing yard sales avoid sales tax. Technically a city or state could charge a sales tax for someone doing a yard sale. It's just impractical to do that because the returns on small sales tax enforcement would just be too small. The same goes for tariffs.

    Yeah. Who gave us the bump stock ban? Was it Obama? Nope. It was Trump. Who floated "red flag" laws? Was it Obama? Nope. It was Trump. Trump even got Rand Paul buying into that red flag garbage for a hot second. Still I thank Matt Collins for bringing this up. The key is to keep the GOP's feet to the fire.

    I'm 100% certain that Bush stole the election for Gore in 2000. I got over it. I'm fairly certain that he stole in from Kerry in 2004. I got over it. There is most certainly fraud in this election. No honest person can say the Dominion voting machines are solid when democrats like Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobachar were raising red flags about them in 2019. Was it enough to tip the balance against Trump? Hard to say. But if he doesn't pull out an actual certified victory than come January he needs to move out and move on and everyone else needs to get over it. That doesn't mean don't keep working to expose the fraud. But we need to quit acting like this is the first time something like this ever happened. It's pretty much zero chance the democrats get the Senate. The republicans in charge of Georgia's election may hate Trump, but I doubt they hate the entire GOP enough to allow a second round of cheating. Then again the evidence suggests that these republicans cheated the democrats back in 2018 and the dems might be holding that evidence over their heads. Regardless, life goes on.

    Ah. The "trade between individuals" myth. If Sally really wants to make a person to person trade to Jose, she can do it under the current tariff regime without paying tariffs. If Jose lives in Mexico she can drive across the border, buy whatever Jose is selling, and drive back. It's the "cartel to cartel" trade where tariff's come into play. You see most of the time Sally doesn't give a rip about buying for Jose or Li Quan or whoever. Sally goes to Walmart (an import / export cartel) who buys a bunch of crap from the Alibaba cartel and puts it nice and neat on the shelf. Sally might prefer to buy from Bob down the street, but Bob's been put out of business now. It's hard for Bob to compete with the near slave labor conditions/wages available in other countries. And to make matters worse, Bob has to pay taxes which helps fund the U.S. Navy which helps keep trade flowing from one cartel to the other. So Bob helps fund his own demise because that's "freedom." Bob might be able to compete with the cartels if Jose and Li Quan were able to come where Bob is and work for more than the near slave labor conditions/wages they get in their home country, but we can't have that because people think Jose and Li Quan are going to all vote democrat. So no. Tariffs are not the evil you've been led to believe they are. I've actually bought from Alibaba (I bought a shipment of 50 N95 type masks early in the pandemic when you couldn't get masks). Tariffs never came up in the equation, though I assume the manufacturer handled all of that. Even with whatever tariff might have been on them, plus the shipping costs, plus the fact that prices were rising simply due to supply and demand, the cost was still dirt cheap. So cheap that tariffs are basically negligible. The idea that we should fund our government through taxes on our own people instead of taxes on outsiders who want to sell us stuff is the most ridiculous nonsense anyone ever conceived. Tariffs are a better idea than an income tax, VAT, capitation tax (sorry Badnon Wissenshaftler ) or any other tax anybody might come up with. Raising tariffs is one of the few things Orange Man did that I actually agree with. And that's true even if they made the N95 masks I imported slightly more expensive.

    Okay. But if going full time meant you doubled your salary that's different than going from zero to $2,500 for a 1 dollar per year increase. Anyway, I'm curious as to why you think it's fair for the people who benefit the most from war, the international merchants, to pay the least in taxes (no tariffs). Pretty much every war we've had has been a trade war from the Revolutionary War all the way through to today's oil wars. For more on that see "War is a racket" by General Smedley Butler. Personally I think all government should be funded by GovFundMe, the government equivalent of GoFundMe. If someone wants to pay for the military in general or fund a particular war, let him. If someone wants to fund feeding hungry children, let him. Vote by spending your dollars.

    That's a perverse disincentive to keep someone at the edge of the poverty level from crossing over into productive society. Let's say the poverty cutoff is $25,000 per year. So I go from zero taxes to $2,500? And there is still "meddling in your affairs" because there is still a yearly income report.
