The US imported an estimated $347 Billion worth of Mexican products last year, making Mexico the second-largest supplier of goods to the US. China is the first.
Under the guise of “America First” trade wars, the Commie-in-Chief may usher in a dollar collapse sooner than any of us could imagine.
Further padding his incompetence with bleeding heart claims about ending the alleged flood of illegal migrants into the US, Trump is no more capable of running the country’s economy than he was in his own failed business endeavors.
As I explained during a recent interview with Press TV:
“This immigration issue is really overblown. It’s actually been a lot of propaganda […] The US government is bankrupt, it’s heading towards hyperinflation just like Venezuela, and they’re trying to shift the blame to get people distracted, saying ‘there’s a huge crisis of Central American immigrants.’”
While there are some people trying to enter the US from south of the border, it’s a question of proportion: the number of migrants is a drop in the bucket compared to the 330 million “official” American citizen-slaves (25% of whom are on welfare).
So, how to Make America Gullible Again?
Here’s the 5-step plan:
- Manufacture a crisis on an issue of importance to the base
- Leave success undefined
- Pretend to play hardball in a way that excites said base
- “Solve” the manufactured crisis
- Disguise the status quo as a “huge success”
The script played out perfectly. After threatening to impose higher
taxes tariffs on more foreign goods, self-proclaimed conservatives cheered Trump on, perhaps ignorant to the consequences they’re paying as the costs of products rise (see: TRADE WAR CHINA! Why It’s a DISASTER For Americans).
Imagine punishing your own people in an attempt to punish another group of people. If the MAGA trolls would simply read Economics in One Lesson, they’d know that tariffs are always paid by the consumers.
Let’s be clear about one thing: a trade war is just another form of war—it’s arguably just as vicious, manipulative, and harmful in the grand scheme as it places arbitrary limits, fees, and regulations on free trade.
These can strike people’s wallets during tough-enough economic times. As I elaborated on television:
“The US says it’s the land of the free yet it’s one of the least free places in the world now. US tax slaves are among the most taxed people in the world. All this is going to do is increase prices and taxes on consumers.”
However, in a move that surprised some, Trump hailed his new deal with Mexico to avoid tariffs… but the terms were actually agreed on months ago, according to officials in both nations.
Ultimately, Trump supporters will applaud anything that looks like a “strong leader” imposing “nationalistic values”—hell, this will probably get him re(s)elected, even as voters have their wealth drained.
Democracy is not only directly opposed to individual liberty, it’s also a profoundly stupid way to structure society… what good is a 51% majority when they’re mostly brainwashed NPCs with stockholm syndrome?
While statism has an obvious price, freedom is a long term investment.
