Tariffs do not have to be an either/or. I agree with Walter Williams on the principle of trade restrictions harming the economy overall. But I also agree with Trump that reciprocal trade restrictions can be used to force other nations to drop restrictions on us. I would prefer to see low, even tariffs across the board for imports to America and on exports from other countries to America.
An 8 team playoff would be MUCH better. Take all five Power Five champs automatically. (Lets nearly every major team control their own destiny. Want in? Win your conference!) After that, take the top NON-Power Five team. Finally, take 2 wild cards from the best two teams not yet in.
Still a bit subjective, but would have included a Big10 and Pac12 team this year, and UCF. Likely Wisconsin, too.
That’s NOT a valid argument (That you shouldn’t export a strategic asset.)
Exporting energy does NOT drive up the price at home. It increases production at home.
Exporting energy creates a HUGE production capability and puts US in charge of strategic assets for other countries. You don’t start a war with the country that supplies your most critical raw materials. Also it transfers a large amount of dollars from overseas BACK to the US. I’d rather give the Chinese oil and coal instead of property and companies in exchange for the dollars we give them.
