Quote from: Jason Harvestdancer on November 12, 2021, 05:27:08 PMI think the party that has been warning us about impending fascism should be congratulated for actually implementing it.

Quote from: GodFree on November 13, 2021, 08:19:51 PMSerious question: I can see why many people don't like Trump's personality, but I'm curious why some associate him with National Socialism. Can someone reply with an example of a policy position he put forth that would support this assertion? Or am I just being too literal, and what was meant was that some posters just really don't like him and were just name-calling? Granted, my reply is belated and Trump isn't really relevant anymore, but I am curious.
Quote from: Dark Lightning on November 13, 2021, 11:23:14 PMThe chump's tariffs are a joke, when one considers that many, if not most, companies moved their manufacturing facilities to the Pacific Rim. The idea with a tariff is to encourage the population to "buy local". Can't buy local if there is no local producer of said good(s). One of my friends started off talking about how the tariffs the chump imposed in 2017 were a good thing. It took a couple of times of asking him who was paying the tariff before he got it. We've lost that infrastructure, and it's going to be painfully expensive to get it back, and I don't expect manufacturing to return to the US in any meaningful way.
