I’m concerned China is soon going to be eating our lunch economically and militarily

The first part has already happened. We must bring manufacturing back to the U.S..

Yes, but how is that accomplished while simultaneously shrinking the size of the federal government and continuing to grow the GDP?

The easiest way to bring manufacturing back to the US is to place restrictions on imports, such as tariffs and quotas. Unfortunately the first groups who would be impacted by that are the small-to-medium-sized business that make so much use of imports. We would then see increased prices and job losses at EXACTLY the wrong time. Not to mention the increase in government size that would result from these regulations.

Takes at least one generation to build a half way decent Navy.

Why?

To make stuff no one will buy because it is too expensive? That will bankrupt companies and destroy the economy. That is a very naive view

Like it or not, we live in a world where the economy is global
