    pronouns.... go ahead and report me again, OB, I'm going for the high score. I like to follow the Ron Paul example of not speaking in absolutes. So, if I ever have to work with Elliot or some person who has pronoun preferences, I will do my best to try to remember that. Not sure if I'll use the preferred pronouns or the accurate ones. We'll all find out when it happens. But I'm not ever going to use a plural pronoun as a substitute for a singular pronoun. I'm incapable of that. I have a liberal/Dem/progressive buddy who's on the same page with me there. it/ze?

    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.

If you are against tariffs then you should be against closed borders.

    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.
