So were state-2-state tariffs. The US is literally the largest free trade zone in history, yet we have Americans supporting trade restrictions. Talk about cognitive dissonance!!!!
Think about the civil war. The north couldn't compete with the "cheap slave labor" of the south, so they enacted tariffs........ The south didn't want to let go of slavery because, get this, without slavery they couldn't compete with the tariffs!!!!
Slavery to protect against tariffs, tariffs to protect against slavery. THIS is protectionism. It is nothing more than economic warfare fueled by revenge.
