The Freedom Caucus Is The Silver Lining In The Obamacare Debacle

Islamic Refugees:

The [original refugee moratorium] EO was rolled out in a haphazard way that damages any effort to have a serious conversation about refugee admittance and the security concerns of many Americans.

International Trade:

… manufacturing jobs have declined in the United States largely due to automation, not international trade.  This trend will not be halted through protectionism. For Trump to claim that he will bring those jobs back would be as ludicrous as if President Calvin Coolidge had promised blacksmiths that he would protect their jobs from foreign trade.  It wasn’t trade that put the blacksmith out of business; it was the automobile and Henry Ford’s assembly line.  And the economy was better for it: more jobs, higher wages, cheaper and better consumer goods.

These are not the actions of a free-trade believer; they are the actions of a liberal nationalist.  Maybe he can do something to prove that he actually trusts the free market and free trade, instead of just crony capitalism, but he hasn’t yet.

The pressure applied [by Trump] to Carrier (and Ford) is nothing other than a stealth welfare scheme – because the reality of this is that consumers will be subsidizing these workers’ pay by paying higher prices for products that would otherwise be lower.  This also puts the manufacturer at risk against foreign competitors who will now gain a competitive edge in labor costs.

Trump’s ‘National Day Of Patriotic Devotion’ Is Creepy As Hell
