Honestly, I'm more interested in the TV discussion, but as to the "America" thing, I'm as big a patriot as you can find, and I think we have the best markets and best technology the world has ever known, and in my opinion?
It's beneath us to be manufacturing television sets and assembling cars, and it's not the best use of our skills and time and effort. Not only that, the American people shouldn't be paying a premium for that. Let China and Korean make TVs, and let us do those things we do best. If that means "retraining", so be it. Life isn't static. We didn't sit pat when rail took over from horses (and when air took over for rail), and we didn't sit pat when telephones took over for telegrams and such (and when cell technology took over for landlines). We are innovators. Artificially gaming the economy to accommodate the manufacture of televisions in Detroit and South Carolina is NOT the answer.
If you think I'm wrong about this, we need only look at the farming industry. Roosevelt - the left's St. Reagan - put in the same kind of tariffs and controls back in the '30's that Trump is promising for industry today. BUT: the result was, the world said "FUCK YOU" to American agricultural products, and we're STILL subsidizing the farm industry almost 90 years, and 12 Presidents later. 12 PRESIDENTS! Almost a CENTURY!
I expect this kind of thing from Bernie, who doesn't know the first thing about international economics, but Trump should know better. The trick is to make a product and or service that others can't and trade it for those things that everyone could make, but some make cheaper and more efficiently.
