There is a lot of criticism on the left-side of the political spectrum over President Donald Trump’s ascertain that NAFTA needs to be re-negotiated with Mexico, and don’t think that Canada isn’t also a little concerned about this, even if Canada isn’t the target of the re-negotiation, they are part of NAFTA too you know. It seems Mexico is pretty concerned that NAFTA is in danger, and foreign direct investment into Mexico looks as if it has dropped off a cliff since Trump was elected.
Why is a Think Tank Founder like me for a rethinking and re-negotiation of NAFTA you ask? Simple, because we need “Free and Fair” trade, we don’t have that now. When I ship equipment to Mexico it is heavily taxed as imports. China charges huge amounts to our imports, we don’t reciprocate. Free and Fair is a smart negotiation rule to have in trade deals. Likewise, Trump wants to lower corporate taxes, lowering corporate taxes will help corporations spend some of that money they are sitting on, invest it here, repatriate monies back to the USA. Trump’s team is also for ditching political correctness and over regulation which will help small businesses – especially if that catches on locally to smaller city, county, state government agencies. America needs a reality check. We cannot turn our nation into a La La Land University – look what’s happening in that bubble of nonsense. 40% of the 1.3 Trillion college loan debt is in default – it’s going to be a huge crisis. Our professor here on the dialogue surely sees it coming – something has to be done, this crisis could define Trump’s Administration along with the implosion of ObamaCare, ISIS crisis, EU financial collapse – lots.
I still don’t understand why Mexico charges me 40% import tax and I buy so many of their products, like Tomatoes for instance, grown in fields where workers defecate in the fields, and farmers don’t follow our rules, they sell them into our markets at a huge advantage of labor, regs, put our farmers in CA out of business, all so Warren Buffett can get a huge boost in the stock of Heinz Corp. and John Kerry can reap huge wealth, a day after he signs up for Secretary of State, and puts his financial dealings into Trust. Both sides do such things, it sickens me.
Our Commerce Department works for large corporations and against little businesses, most of our regulatory bodies do, it costs jobs and puts smaller firms out of business. I think the system is false, wrong, and Hillary Clinton would have been more of the same, same College Tuition policies, healthcare policies, politically correct policies, lastly, I just got tired of being called a racist. So now, it’s our turn to fix things. Think on this.
