so conservatives now support economic regulation, restricted markets, gun control measures, and limitations on constitutional rights

what a time to be alive

There are liberal regulations, restrictions, and limitations, and then there are MAGA regulations, restrictions, and limitations.

DOW drops more than 500 points :excited:

He's hoping we get a 3rd 1000+ point drop in the span of like 4 weeks.

New Theory: Trump doesn't like being President but is too proud to resign, so he's just trying to get voted out.

That isn't a very well thought-out plan, given that it would take 3 years and he probably won't live much more than 10. So it sounds about right.

Theory: he is actually still a Democrat and ran just to win then absolutely troll his GOP base by forcing them to come up with defenses for insanely contradictory positions.  Its kind of a revenge thing forcing them to concoct new talking points

this demonstrates trumps pitiful understanding of the modern US economy.

it is to our advantage to import raw materials at as low a cost as possible so we can make them into cool stuff

instead he wants to try to come back in a game we lost 30-40 years ago.

it is possible that the intent of this is to rebuild domestic steel and aluminum production capacity in anticipation of a 1vALL war against the rest of the world.

It demonstrates his lack of understanding of economics in general. But if we know anything about modern conservatism it’s that 90% of them will get in line because it’s our team v. Their team.

I would like to revise this to "a game we intentionally outsourced 30-40 years ago in order to make cool stuff better"

New new Theory: Trump knows the end is near and wants a few good things for his legacy. "Trump was a mess, but at least he gave us DACA and gun control"

Really I thought we’d advanced to a place politically that free trade was basically supported by all non-dumbasses.
