   Ignoble donald supporters seem to say that we MUST listen to his folks and disbelieve anything else that you read.   

   So imaging my surprise when this popped up :   – A day after China said it would stop buying food from American farmers, the top U.S. agriculture official said “the ball is in China’s court” to end the yearlong trade war.

 

    So resolving a trade war and everyone agrees that donald's strategy is tariffs so now magically his Sec. of Ag is saying that they are not driving the debate.    OH MY.

Tariffs are taxes which are passed along to the American people in the form of higher prices.

Whenever we talk about establishing a living minimum wage, the Regressives claim every dollar (and more) will be passed along to the consumer. When Trump's trade war places tariffs on the same products, they seem to feel the Chinese will be hurt. 

 

Can't have economics both ways. 

 


You can, if you tell The Big Lie loud enough and often enough, which is what Regressives have been doing since they turned the GOP over to the KKK with the Southern Strategy.Then the FACTS no longer matter to your audience.

 

GOPerBots have been inundated with lies about the economy for over 50 years so now they actually believe Reagan gave THEM a tax cut and the reason the bottom 90% of workers haven't gotten a raise since 1970 is Globalization and Automation and NOT their rapacious bosses and Reagan's taxscam.

What platform does trump have if the economy tanks or falls into a recession before the election. He does not have any other policies or legislation that he is 

promoting...other than a wall or how he can be more racist, deny people their rights, or promote phony investigations. 


He will just continue to push his racism and hate which his supporters love.


And sadly, that could get him elected again. We need a BLUE WAVE in 2020.


The blue wave you will never see with the bunch of money wasting liberals you have vying for the Democrat President candidate.

The government taxes people who are MAKING money (not that are working).  The lions share taxes are being paid by the most wealthy and the least wealthy pay nothing!
