So the title of this post may catch some off guard as there is no “official” trade war. But has America really went to this unofficial war armed with fists to fight an enemy armed with tanks?
Democrats have been pushing an economic stimulus package that includes “buy American” provisions. Many Republicans are concerned such provisions would be the spark to ignite a trade war. You can read more about these buy American provisions here.
But the truth is America has laid down and surrendered well before the trade war ever started. Just look at the casualties - millions of Americans left unemployed and poisonous products made in China sitting on nearly every store shelf. Why would Republicans be concerned about igniting a trade war when we have been getting our butts whipped in the current trade war?
By not using the official term “trade war,” most Americans are oblivious in their complacency. That is, until it hits home. Well the enemy has landed on American shores and yet your government is not stopping them. And sadly many American citizens don’t realize the invasion is happening as I type.
To add insult to injury, many of the same Chinese Executives that have stolen American jobs are now using their wealth to buy homes in the United States at fire sale prices. Heck, Americans can’t afford the homes but the Chinese sure can. And what is more disturbing is that there are Chinese companies organizing “home buying trips” to America to buy cheap homes. Read more about the Chinese invasion here.
The Chinese took our jobs, replaced American made products with tainted merchandise, and are now buying the homes Americans were kicked out of. Folks, we are not losing the trade war. We are being totally annihilated.
The path to an economic recovery in the USA must include provisions in present trade agreements to protect our economic future. With a near bankrupt country, the USA can not afford to send everyone to college so that the middle class can recover. The fact is millions of skilled manufacturing workers are unemployed and need to be put back to work immediately. This can only happen if America starts defending itself against its economic enemies.
