Free market for thee, but not for mee.

I don't actually mind the US protecting their economy from a predatory one that is more powerful - but I'd like USians to remember this when their politicians argue for war against 3rd world countries that want to protect their economies from the US.

Jesus Christ he's actually trying to lose this election.

I remember when trump was called out on his dumb little trade war (and rightfully so), but now that biden took the same trade war and escalated it, somehow it's all good. Then these hypocrites wonder why people think both parties are the same.

Ah yes.... Scotch tariffs really helped save our domestic Scotch market.

I would vote for a presidency that is for free trade. Allow these companies to mature in the market. Though in this case the technology in US cars is extremely behind. I mean were only just getting LFP in cars, and while 800v that allows for super fast charging is markedly common over there, it is in only a few models here. I'm not getting why we're putting these companies under tariff, legacy doesn't have an EV industry with the capacity to scale affordable EV. A lack of innovation is also something to mention. It really shouldn't be considered a good thing when a 10 year old EV like the Bolt is a best seller. I wish the US legacy auto EV industry would either build a very basic aerodynamic economy EV with no tech nonsense for under 25k with 250 miles minimum or just leave it to Tesla and Chinese OEM. I mean all of them have abandoned the sedan and economy car market.. Why not let the Chinese have that market share if they can't build something comparable just put tariffs on Chinese SUV and trucks which is a segment that legacy auto can't stop building.

Saying both parties are the same is an early sign of dementia.

No, you’re just scared to face the reality that you actually have no power in this country, and the both sides are in fact the same. One just says the N word.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 month ago

Anyone who thinks both sides are the same is head caved in stupid, not paying attention, or willfully lying.

It's always fascinating to watch liberals attempting to distance themselves from their more overtly fascist cousins... yeah - totally nothing suspicious going on there.
