Go back and read the OP. I dont give a toss why you are imposing sanctions.
CLEAN DEBATE, tommy!
Pretty much all of that is off topic. I am interested in the process and that is what the thread is about.
/----/ Tommy, Tommy, Tommy. I was reacting to your question, specificity "imposing tariffs." It came from the fact other countries protect their industry by imposing deep tariffs on imported US products and at the same time face few if any tariffs on their goods shipped to the US. I gave a prime example of the tariffs China places on US made cars.
"So where do US policies come from ?
I was struck by two policies put forward by the President recently.
Arming teachers and imposing tariffs."
Not off-topic. Shockedcanadian is explaining Trump's economic trade policy, which is basically one of the reasons the American voters put him in office.
Im not looking for trump abuse here or Obama abuse either. Neither do I want arguments pro and con these two measures.
Just an understanding of how these ideas get to be the thing.
To the best of my understanding the process is much the same here. Someone (or group) proposes an idea, it gets floated out for "public debate", then it either gets put into action or it doesn't. The bribery part is there as well. It's why so much is spent on lobbying. The specifics of HOW are different in many cases, but where it comes from, pretty much the same. Our system of government in some ways is based on the British system of the 1600's and 1700's. Of course there are quite a few glaring differences, but you guys have remedied most of that now , so the two systems are really quite similar, again, as I understand it.
