If Barack Obama hammered the nails in the coffin of the American republic, it will be Donald Trump who buries it.
In a recent article, I wrote that Donald Trump would not be a President who restored capitalism and individual rights, but would be a President who would initiate fascism. If his attitudes and beliefs about the cult of personality applied to government don’t convince you, then consider some of his policy positions reported in a recent interview Trump gave to the conservative publication, “Human Events.”
Donald Trump favors protectionism. In other words, he advocates "free trade, but also fair trade." This is what socialists and fascists say; it's not what proponents of capitalism say. He wants a 25 percent tax on all products and services that come from China.
Who does this punish? People who want products and services from China.
Who does this reward? People who will have to work less hard to charge more for items that China can no longer sell in the U.S.
What seems on the surface like it's harming a fascist country -- by making America more socialist and fascist itself -- actually hurts consumers in the free country. If Trump wants to hurt China, he shouldn't hurt the American consumer. He should lift all the taxes, regulations and other socialist policies hampering American business. Restoring capitalism in the United States is the way to defeat the fascist-socialist Chinese.
