OK here it is..

"The heart of the contradictory thinking concerning tariffs is in the statement, "I favor open competition, but. . . ." Being human, men will often appeal to the State to protect their monopolistic position on the market. They secretly favor security over freedom. The State steps in to honor the requests of certain special interest groups – which invariably proclaim their cause in the name of the general welfare clause of the Constitution – and establishes several kinds of restrictions on trade."

"I favor open competition, but.."
I refuse to finance producers of products that were made by slaves. I do not refuse to finance those products because I somehow want to force them to be made within my own nation, not because of any sense of having a "better moral perspective", I choose not to finance them because I know that if I do not send the dictator my wealth for his cheap slave made products, that the dictator will have his head roll down the street because he will no longer have the funds to feed his slaves and the slaves will revolt no doubt. Once the slaves have revolted and look to us for leadership by example and not by the barrel of a gun, there will be hope of a better future for the slaves (good for them) and a better future for me because a new market where the free people (not slaves anymore..) can prosper has just come in to existence and a prosperous customer is a customer everyone wants, including me.

That hat does not fit me.. do you agree with that?

"The State steps in to honor the requests of certain special interest groups – which invariably proclaim their cause in the name of the general welfare clause of the Constitution – and establishes several kinds of restrictions on trade."

Special interest groups would not have a leg to stand on if the only acceptable lawful argument they could make would be related to how free of a market their competition is working in. Remember, my point is not about economic protectionism. It's about changing the world by example in a non interventionist way. How could special interest groups even expect to get any favorable laws passed if "everyone" in Congress was a Liberty Movement supporter?

(I have read the article and don't appreciate his style of communicating the message he wants to share, I will return to this post to finish it, if (no offense) I find the will to do so.) :)

I think it's great that we are discussing this matter but I can't forget that their is more to life than debating tariffs lol.

Be back soon. Possibly.
