I would agree with you if the world were fair.
However, America has built a massive vending operation built on one principle:
CHEAP IS GOOD.
Doesn’t matter if stuff is sellable in return. Just as long as it is available and cheap.
So we have built a shopping experience better than any others. The entire world sells stuff in America.
This was great for about a generation. But now, we begin to notice something.
We no longer make anything.
We no longer make clothes, we no longer make pottery. We no longer make electronics. We no longer make computers.
The list grows longer every single day, yet we do nothing.
This cannot continue.
Markets must be open both ways. Or ours will close.
No more messing around.
It is when American families are struggling to get by because half their paychecks are lost to some kind of tax or government fee.
There was a time when dad could bring home his pay check and comfortably support an entire family with 5 kids. That was before welfare.
