    I'm not sure about the negative interest rates, I would prefer debt cancellation/default.

    Defensive tariffs are a must unless we just go for an embargo on China and other trade cheats.

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    I'm just basing it on what religious zealots over history do when people become inconvenient to the zealot's higher goals. Just claim God told them to do it and it's alllll good.

    yes but negative rates at least level the playing field for a while. The US is probably the only contry in the world that could get away with repudiating its debt
