C'mon...tell me why I am wrong!

Capitalism is about free market, supply and demand. Not controling every aspect of it.

on the other hand, economies should be more local. Shipping stuff around is not very energy wise.

Tariffs are the original American way! I understand that we now have an repressed oligarchy with a hint of a police state thrown in for flavor....

BUT...continue to read below!

"Responding to an urgent need for revenue following the American Revolutionary War, after passage of the U.S. Constitution the First United States Congress passed, and President George Washington, signed the Tariff Act of July 4, 1789, which authorized the collection of duties on imported goods. Customs duties as set by tariff rates up to 1860 were usually about 80-95% of all federal revenue."

That's some serious BANK!!!!!
