    It's more like being bit by a red ant or a black ant. They may irritate you but they won't kill you. Politics doesn't rule your life. There is very little that you deal with in your real life that is heavily impacted by a government's decision. Lighten up.

    To vasuderatorrent: Which planet did you come from? The list is far too long to post. Every item on the list is a tome in itself; so I will only name number one —— THE INCOME TAX.

    The thing about Ford... to charge them 35% tax to import their own goods, they have a corporate office in the US which means they are legally a "Made in American" company, like all the other car manufacturers...they would not give in, they would raise the cost of their vehicles for the US buyers to cover that tax. The reason they open factories in cheap labor countries is so they can sell the product cheaper, even to US buyers. Trump will not hurt them, but the costs for us will increase and our jobs will not come back. Our labor laws protect us, but they also make us incomparable to places like Mexico, China, and Indonesia. Trade is our biggest problem and I have no idea how anyone can fix it without the people of the US willing to not buy cheaper products from China, and that will never happen. Our president and members of Congress make profits off what we do sell and the laws they pass (ACA), and no one is willing to toss their stock portfolio to help fix it. Greed and labor... Trump thinks he knows how to fix it, but he does not. Jobs in the US are becoming an endangered species and Trump was right about one thing in particular--we are turning into a welfare state--a failed state, not a third world state because we have the means to sustain our country, but not the legislators--not the brilliance to do it.
