Response to Sen. Walter Sobchak (Reply #49)

56. I'm generally opposed to tariffs, but ...

I am not in favor of allowing near-unlimited access to our markets in exchange for very limited access to a trading-partner's markets. Also, I think free-trade with nations who turn a blind-eye to vast abuses of American intellectual property rights is also unfair to the American worker.

The goal should be fair trade, and if tariffs have to be imposed in order to offset similar restrictions (and thefts) placed on American exports, so be it.

We have the upper hand in any trade negotiations. We're not the ones with a lopsided export-dependent economy.
