The topic of the awkward Trump tariff has roiled in one’s mind for some time, and it is mystifying that few others notice this albatross around the neck of the US public.  Typically a tariff is imposed in order to balance American imports and exports to enhance exports over imports to accomplish the end of cash flowing into the USA  rather than out of the USA.  The US governing body duopoly of Democrats and Republicans have collaborated over years to send manufacturing and jobs overseas.  And so to place a tax upon imports accomplishes nothing other than further taxing the US consumer.  One has heard bureaucrats ‘splain away the Trump tariff by saying it was implemented for geo-political reasons.  This charmingly snarky ‘splanation is typical of the jargon that passes for news these days.  And too many of the public smiles and nods and says “oh, okay”.

If a disconnected and clumsy Administration would put in place such an oddity as the Trump tariff, why would the next Administration continue such an inflation generator?  Apparently I couldn’t see the forest for the trees.  Stepping back and considering the last several decades, suddenly the answer popped out.  Please bear with opinions about the path of transformations over the years that has resulted in virtual fascism and the Trump tariff—-

*Let’s say about 40 years ago the business community across American local neighborhoods were populated with individual commercial establishments called Mom and Pops

*These establishments provided dignity in employment for local families, along with unique diversity in products and consumers

*Chain stores began to emerge and slowly drove out of business such free enterprise ability

*NAFTA was a trade agreement that was heavily protested by people who predicted that globalism would undermine American workers, and they seemed to have been correct

*TPP followed as a trade agreement that included language prioritizing multi-national corporate interests over human rights and nature rights, by trade agreement

*These trade agreements aren’t free market, and as Obama warned, “there will be winners and losers”

*It isn’t the business of trade agreements to enforce loser status upon the American public to prioritize corporate interests, many of which are big-money campaign donors

*With destruction of many Mom and Pops by government edict, ability for local-community members to run sole proprietors has diminished dangerously

*However, many entrepreneurs recently have taken advantage of the internet to purchase product from the same low-income workers in foreign nations who are used by multi-natinal corporations

*Stores in the US owned by sole props could, therefore, purchase product inexpensively and therefore earn a living

*The Trump tariff, even if unintended, is functionally stopping the ability of free market actions by local-community entrepreneurs that could bite into the business of chain commerce that is also big-money campaign donors

*Also, it feels like government/corporations have a vested interest in maintaining dependence by the public upon corporations/government

*However, one believes bureaucrats are quite aware of the impact of their actions

*The tariff seems to prohibit sole props from using globalism in their businesses, while corporations can pass the Trump tariff on to consumers while the US government collects the tariff

*Taxation of corporations protects the owners (stockholders) from absorbing the Trump tariff, while sole props are those who absorb the tariff

*That MSM hasn’t raised any of these issues and adds to suspicion that the same journalists who laughably recently spread the propaganda of the “red wave”, are also either ignorant or sufficiently remunerated to ask no questions about the Pyramid-Scheme economy

And so we have government run like a business which on a continuum appears to be organized crime.

While government/MSM urges the public to accept globalism in order not to be “isolationists”, MSM/government indoctrinate the public into servile isolation.  What’s up with that?

And yes, I once more wrote in for NYS governor, Howie Hawkins, because democracy without independence makes no sense.  What would be the point?

****As one who would be perfectly contented to retain the Senate if they adhered to Oaths of Office more than to Citizens United campaign donations, one is interested in a topic raised as to the reason we maintain the US Senate—-

 This is a reminder of how much we don’t know.  This brings one around to Howie Hawkins, who continues to impress with original thought.  We also could acknowledge Hawkins often speaks to censored information.
One such topic about which one would never have even considered, is whether the USA needs The Senate.  Apparently The Senate is little other than expensive window dressing, promoting hierarchical interests, and too often placed in positions of power by big-money via Citizens United.  But the public gets to fund this curiosity of pompous supremacy.  Who knew?
The Democratic Branch of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly are especially functional in voter suppression—–https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNbdkuU1edw          —#GreenSocialist Notes #76
Howie Hawkins brings up the concept of whether the USA needs the Senate.  Apparently according to some people, the Senate isn’t necessary.  This brings up the blockage from the Senate of many bills that would benefit We The People.  Combined with Citizens United that promotes big-money interest choice of Senators, in which laws are passed that benefit big-money interest rather than We The People, and that We The People support economically, the members of the Senate, this seems a good topic for discussion.
The US Constitution doesn’t seem to sanction elections run by political Parties, and to permit control of political debates by political Parties seems equally corrupt.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ7kn2-GEmM       —

That “we are a 2-Party system” is a fabrication of the Republican/Democratic duopoly and spread by MSM.  In FACT the majority of voters aren’t either registered Democratic or Republican.  The censorship about this info must be envied by bureaucrats of the Former USSR and their simplistic style of 1-Party elections.  

Regardless of which character sits in the Oval Office, We The People have work to do to maintain principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  Several items to challenge—*We need the integrity of ranked-choice voting so voters won’t feel compelled to “hold your nose and vote”*Censored debates must be stopped.  The Democratic/Republican duopoly pretends to legitimate debates in what is nothing other than another campaign show.  Independent debates run by uninterested sponsors such as The League of Women Voters, must be restored.  (Access www.debates.org to understand the extent of duopoly control).  The so-called Debate Commission is a corporation to promote the Democratic corporation and Republican corporation, not to inform We The People*Challenge and stop gerrymandering that is a trick especially of the Republican branch of the duopoly.*Stop voter suppression by political Parties, and especially confront and stop Party suppression, which is the over-arching approach to voter suppression.  Party suppression seems to have been the responsibility of the Democratic corporation*Promote by law ranked-choice voting, so we won’t be told again, by D&R duopoly, to “hold your nose and vote”
If these issues are handled, our next elections can be honorable.

WITHDRAWS SUPPORT FROM FINAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE–end of lwv info–Murray Bookchin, who founded social ecology, a theory that strongly influenced early Green Socialist thought, strongly advocated the discussion and study group as the first step of any revolutionary movement. A group of individuals meets to expand their knowledge of radical thought and form a radical intellectual community; through the give and take of discussion, can eventually form ideas for next steps in organizing and political activity. According to Bookchin, study groups help create solidarity and a shared language — with a shared coherent vision — for building a mass, organizing, political movement!
