You mentioned"in a perfect

You mentioned"in a perfect world", so, I would like to point out that in this imperfect world, a tariff would rob the people TWICE.

The slaves will still be enslaved, and now the tariff will keep them and their customers poor.

Remember, the money spent on the tariff could've been used to actually produce something useful.

Tariff to fund the gov't, yes.
Tariff to increase prosperity, LMFAO!!!
Tariff to take away what little prosperity slaves have, IMMORAL!!

It all depends on what you want to accomplish. Tariffs make things more expense, which makes us go with less(explanation in my other reply). Support them ONLY if that is your goal.

FWIW, please don't think I am trying to insult. Disproving protectionism is such a simple task that it's hard to NOT come off as insulting peoples' intelligence, lol. The proof really is self-evident, and common sense based, no matter how elaborate the defenses are.
