(With apologies to Real Ronald McDonald.)
“President” Donald Trump is a clown. An ignoramus, and someone who seems to be hell-bent on ruining America, or at least totally reversing the economic prosperity from the tax cuts he signed into law (that will expire anyway — WHY didn’t they make that permanent? Morons.), and causing the next economic downturn. ObamaTrump.
He wants to impose tariffs i.e. fines to punish American consumers for their purchasing choices that The Donald doesn’t like, and to punish American producers for their capital goods purchases that The Donald doesn’t like. So imposing tariffs on China, then China retaliates, and then Mexico, then India, etc. etc.
Trump just doesn’t get what America is all about, or he does get it but has contempt for it. And that is freedom. Freedom means economic freedom. The freedom to spend your own money on whatever you want, from wherever you want to buy it from. And if the rulers don’t like it, they can go jump in a lake.
Trump is also a vicious drug warrior, and a warrior on immigration and foreigners coming to America to work, go to school, start businesses, and so on. If you’re worried about the “wrong” kinds of people coming to America across the border, and worried about drugs being trafficked across the border, then end U.S. government foreign interventionism and militarism in Central and South America. And end the war on drugs. Repeal every law on the books that pertains to drugs, close down the DEA (and ICE, DHS, TSA, FBI, CIA, NSA, etc., etc.).
One main reason why the flood of immigrants from Central and South America is the U.S. government’s war on drugs. Yes, it’s your fault, Donald. Prohibition causes a black market which incentivizes low-lifes to want to get rich by exploiting people’s weakness. Prohibition empowers and feeds drug pushers, traffickers, cartels, drug lords and gangs including MS-13. End the drug war and end prohibition and those things will be gone quickly.
What is it with these bureaucrats? These worshipers of government central planning, like Donald Trump? These sick statists are all the same. They can’t leave people alone. They either want to force something on you and mandate and compel you to do something, or they want to prohibit you from doing something that’s no one else’s business, or they want to tax you i.e. steal more from you or impose economic policies that will cause prices to go up on the things you need to buy.
Government central planning is a very bad thing, and it needs to end.
I was going to write “send the clown back to the private sector,” but that would give us a “President Mike Pence.” Another vicious drug warrior, anti-foreigner anti-immigration fanatic, bloodthirsty neocon warvangelical warmonger. I don’t know what’s worse.
