Here is a little logic exercise for you. The next time you hear someone saying that a trade war is the absolute worst policy and that it will be catastrophic for our economy, especially consumers? Well if you are able to then ask those same people what their thoughts are on the numerous shooting wars that our country remains committed to. If you’re not able to ask then do a little homework. Look it up, it isn’t hard to find a record somewhere that indicates their position on this subject. I can tell you that the majority of those same people will staunchly defend our prolonged involvement in our many conflicts. Now as there is no truly demonstrable benefit from these long standing engagements, yet they still defend them, one must conclude that their position on at least one if not both is false.
