    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    A benevolent dictator wouldn't be so bad, if he truly had our best interests at heart, like for example requiring people to brush their teeth

    Flat, uniform tariffs on everything that crosses the border, or nothing at all. Targeting specific industries reeks of protectionism.

    It's too bad this poll is anonymous. It would be nice to see the pro-tariff trolls out themselves.

    Actually it reeks of winning because Trump can use it to negotiate and make deals with other countries and batten down their tariffs.

    What's going to happen is we are going to be exposed to less taxation because the media and experts are full of $#@! as usual and Trump knows what he is doing.

    He is going to negotiate lower tariffs and we will have more free markets as a result. You are just looking at it from one side, wanting to have the freedom to buy from other countries without getting taxed.

    Well, maybe some people want the freedom to sell to other countries without being taxed as much.

    Maybe actually sticking up for ourselves and telling countries to stop taking advantage of us and give us better deals will actually get us better deals.

    Have you thought of that?

    Should have voted Yes. The poll asked about the protective steel tarrifs.

    Would you support a 1% tariff between our country and Country A if Country A agreed to lower their tariff on us from 40% to 10%?

    That is overall lower taxation. That is supportive of the site mission.

    It's possible. In any case, I'd be buying stock in US steel right now if I had any money to invest.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States

    The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United States (U.S.) or America, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and various possessions. At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2) and with over 325 million people, the United States is the world's third- or fourth-largest country by total area and the third-most populous. The capital is Washington, D.C., and the largest city by population is New York City. Forty-eight states and the capital's federal district are contiguous and located in North America between Canada and Mexico. The state of Alaska is in the northwest corner of North America, bordered by Canada to the east and across the Bering Strait from Russia to the west. The state of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-Pacific Ocean. The U.S. territories are scattered about the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, stretching across nine official time zones.

    How do you know it makes other countries lower their tariffs? Maybe they'll raise them in retaliation.
