    What's funny is McCain would hated Mark Sanford because Sanford voted for military cuts. McCain was the only Republican to vote against Mulvaney. Winning over Communists to libertarianism is a pipe dream. Kissing the ass of leftists wins you praise right up to the point that you can actually win. Didn't work for Ron or Rand. McCain spent a career as a cuckold and they tarred him as racist extremist in 2008.

    I hate this guy. Defends Marxists like Salvador Allende in Chile against the mean old US. https://www.lewrockwell.com/2005/01/jacob-hornberger/the-conservative-threat-to-freedom/ There is nothing to like about Ilhan Omar. He's also one of these buffoons who smears anyone who believes in ANY borders and who isn't for complete unlimited immigration as a socialist. He constantly dumped on Rand. Just not a good guy.

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL. I like how Bond looks gender neutral. What is this? I binge watched Billions last week and one of the main characters in gender neutral and prefers to be called they/them. And apparently "it" is like that in real life. And "it" gets interviewed and is lauded as revolutionary for breaking down societal gender constructs.

    Bitcoin really taking a shit right now at 9250. It looks like death. Wouldn't be surprised if this is shakeout and has a bounce. Might wake up early and look to buy. Gut feeling is lot of people using this spot as a place to exit thinking trend is over. Would like to get a flush to 9k

    I said this a for a while. I thought Sanford was a likely LP choice and probably a devastating one to Trump because he is a social conservative. He turned down Johnson in 2016 to be his running mate.

    Remember when John McEnroe was asked by the NPR leftist why he qualified calling Serena Williams the best female player ever and just not the best ever? And McEnroe's response was Williams be ranked about 800 in the world against men? Important to get equal pay for these women who bring in literally 1/30th of the revenue as the Men's World Cup and who get beat by 15 year olds.

    Pretty big selloff. Bitcoin probably not making new recent highs above 14k in the next couple of weeks. Kind of in no mans land right now. A lot of negative news lately. If it shrugs that news off and consolidates and gets footing and works its way for a run higher over the next few months, will likely make an all time high at some point. If it fails hard probably the end of the road for Bitcoin for a long while.

    I am a fairly big basketball fan. I doubt I have missed watching more than three games after the second round in the playoffs in the last three years. I could name a large percentage of the roster on most NBA playoff teams. I have never heard of Sue Bird or Megan Rapinoe in my life until a week ago. Rapinoe is basically well known because she hates America. Literally hates the country. I hope she gets AIDS.

    Goldman Sachs did nothing wrong selling credit default swaps. People wanted them. Goldman sold them. This isn't Cuba. Goldman Sachs provided a service. And credit default swaps weren't the problem. Being overleveraged was the problem. Anyone who says that is unethical is a buffoon who likely walks around with an 8th place participation ribbon in the paste eating contest. And LOL at citing Matt Taibbi and Michael Lewis. They are the worst. And LOL saying America needs more "investor protection" like Europe. What is this capitalist hating garbage? People put money in this US because we aren't Europe. Goldman Sachs probably has too much influence and using influence to write the rules. But I see nothing in this article that is so awful.

    Glad you pointed that out. Perot is like Tucker Carlson, a social democrat. Right man won in hindsight. Bill froze the regulatory state. Cut the capital gains rate. Passed welfare reform. Expanded trade. And spending didn't grow very much. Not perfect but better than Bush Sr and Perot.

    Which is ultimately what most of this tariff talk is about. Who cares if manufacturing jobs are going away? Why are those jobs worth saving? Protectionist tariffs are welfare stolen from people not in those protected industries. Not to mention we manufacture more now as a country than ever before. Protecting dying, uncompetitive industries makes society poorer. It only hurts those unwilling to adapt.

    Me and 93% of economists. https://gregmankiw.blogspot.com/2009/02/news-flash-economists-agree.html A dollar is worth the goods and services you can buy with it. In international trade, you pay for products with products. If China subsidizes an industry and lowers the cost artificially to the point of making the US business uncompetitive, that becomes a benefit to some other part of the United States economy that the Chinese businessman will buy from. The key part of all this is Chinese businessmen have to get something of value in return or else they wouldn't trade. They aren't just getting paper rectangles to use for decoration.

    What? No. Chinese tariffs aren't good. China harms themselves with tariffs. Everyone does win with no tariffs. There is no economic advantage to tariffs. From a purely economic perspective we should have no tariffs regardless of any other country's policy. This is not up for debate.

    Pat Buchanan is an idiot. He is just wrong and it isn't debatable. His argument is the bottom of the barrel argument for tariffs. Both countries win economically when you allow trade otherwise trade wouldn't happen. People don't make it a habit to make themselves worse off when they buy something. Consumers choose foreign products when they deem them better or cheaper. I drive a Japanese car for that reason. I shop at Wal-Mart. In turn the producers int he foreign country buys US products or invests in the US. I don't get the fetish of manufacturing. And he isn't even right about that. The US manufactures more now than at any point in history. Why would any country want to be economically independent? They are basically saying they want to be poorer and inefficient. Not to mention free trade is a safeguard against big government. If government regulation stifles business at home, someone outside the borders will produce it more efficiently.

    I root for America in everything but soccer. I regard soccer as a third world, anti-capitalist sport. Soccer is a sign of lack of progress. And the fact that their best player is a disgusting buffoon only makes me hate them more. I live in a heavily Asian and Indian area and every kid places soccer. It makes me want stronger immigration control to keep these third world customs from infiltrating the US. This clip sums up soccer well.

    Trade is win-win. It only happens if both side benefit. So anything that reduces win-win situations makes people poorer. If China makes something cheaper and the US consumer chooses it, then that is what should happen. It logically has to make the US wealthier. It can't be any other way. You come pretty close and I am not going to spend ten hours looking for the post but you actually did say something to the effect. Your whole thing is about how important it is for the US to manufacture more stuff. Pat Buchanan certainly says that garbage and I see people praising him in this thread. Regardless, using tariffs to prop up uncompetitive industries is welfare and reduces US productivity.

    I am a libertarian/classical liberal. I do not think it should be easy for a totalitarian nuclear power to access US secrets. See. The United States is a fundamentally good country. China is a fundamentally bad country. I don't want to see fundamentally bad countries, especially ones who are surpassing the US in GDP and confiscate a lot of that GDP for the government's coffers, gain more power. A world where China has more influence is a less free world. A world where the US has more power is a more free world. See the past 250 years of world history. I am a libertarian/classical liberal. I do not think hacking US tech companies who do business in China is a legitimate function of government. I don't think forcing US tech to hand over proprietary technology as a precondition to doing business is a legitimate function of government. I do think protecting companies from that theft is a legitimate function. Not to mention, I support intellectual property, which is also libertarian. It is only a small sect of Rothtards who oppose it.

    It is indisputably true tariffs make the country poorer? How does making the country poorer benefit the country and make it more libertarian? Think about how crazy protectionism is. How would an isolated country like New Zealand thrive if they had to make all their own stuff?

    China is a tough case. I do think China should be retaliated against. They steal secrets and American intellectual property. But let's be in reality this isn't about China. The litmus is about tariffs against countries like Canada or even Mexico? Do you think auto makers should be penalized for making things in Mexico? There is no justification for protectionist tariffs ever.

    I highly doubt that this is significantly harming his family's business but if they are, is his response wrong? Classical liberals want the boot of government off their neck. I would be furious if government were harming me. Protectionist tariffs are immoral and disgusting. Free trade is the foreign policy of a capitalist society.
