President Trump is right about taxing at our water’s edge.
« on: March 06, 2018, 02:38:38 PM »


President Trump is spot on to promote tax policy, especially at our water’s edge, which advances America’s general welfare and common defense, just as our founding fathers did, and that would include a modern-day tax policy to insure America is not dependent upon foreign nations for steel or aluminum, both of which are vital in the production of America’s military needs.

The historical fact is, our founding fathers used taxes at our water’s edge to promote America’s best interests, and the use of these taxes were very much responsible for America becoming the economic marvel of the world, until our modern day Congress became infested with disloyal money hungry members who have sold their souls to international corporate giants who have no allegiance to America, and likewise have sold their souls to the U. S. Chamber of Commerce which now represents these international corporate giants and our global governance crowd.

Keep in mind when these free-trade globalist members in Congress talk about “free trade”, they are talking about international corporate giants being allowed to freely flood our market with untaxed cheap inferior goods, most of which are produced under slavish working conditions, while Congress then freely taxes and regulates to death America’s domestic manufactures, its industries and even taxes the property which working people have in their labor to fill our national treasury. I say “our” national treasury because our thieving traitors on Capitol Hill believe our national treasury is their personal ATM, and “free trade” is just another ticket for these thieves to rake in bribery money for passage of legislation beneficial to our globalist one world crowd.

By contrast, instead of taxing our domestic manufactures, industries and labor to fill our national treasury, our founding fathers taxed at our water’s edge and had foreigners paying for the privilege of doing business on America soil just as one buys a ticket to sell their goods and wares at a flea market!

Madison sums up our founding father’s taxing policy as follows during the creation of our Nation`s First Revenue Raising Act


“…a national revenue must be obtained; but the system must be such a one, that, while it secures the object of revenue it shall not be oppressive to our constituents.”

The Act went on to tax specifically chosen imported articles and not one dime was raised by taxing American domestic manufacturers, the working man’s wage, or the returns on invested capital ___ all of which contributed enormously to America becoming the economic marvel of the world! It should also be noted the Act was signed by George Washington on July 4th, 1789, as if to give England a second notice of America’s independence while exercising her power to tax foreign imports in order to fill our national treasury while promoting America’s general welfare and common defense. 

In regard to promoting America’s common defense and in addition to imposing a specific amount of tax on specifically chosen articles imported, our founding fathers imposed an across-the-board tax on imports which was higher for imports arriving in foreign owned foreign built vessels, and discounted the tax for imports arriving in American owned American built ships:

"...a discount of ten percent on all duties imposed by this Act shall be allowed on such goods, wares, and merchandise as shall be imported in vessels built in the United States, and wholly the property of a citizen or citizens thereof."
  SEE: An Act imposing duties on Tonnage July 20, 1789

This patriotic use of taxing at our water’s edge not only filled our national treasury, but gave American ship builders a hometown advantage and predictably resulted in America's ship building industry to flourish and America’s merchant marine to become the most powerful on the face of the planet. Unfortunately, last time I visited the docks in New York's Hell's Kitchen area, I was saddened that I could no longer read the names on the docked ships as they all seemed to be foreign owned foreign built irrefutable sign of America's decline traceable to the ravages of our international “free trade crowd” and a traitorous sellout of America’s sovereignty to the highest international bidders by members of Congress and our presidents of the past.

The bottom line is, President Trump is correct in wanting to insure America is not dependent upon foreign nations in the manufacturing of our military’s needs, just as he is correct in adopting a trade policy which is an America first policy.  And those yap about such a policy creating a “trade war”, suspiciously ignore the existing trade war the United States has been in ever since the NAFTA was adopted, which in effect un-constitutionally transferred Congress’ [the people’s elected representatives] assigned duty to regulate trade with foreign nations, placing this assigned power in the hands of Binational Panels, who are not elected by the American People, a majority of whom are foreigners, and who represent the interests of international corporate giants who have no allegiance to America or any nation!  And this is what our Global Governance Crowd and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce support ___ subjugating Congress’ power to regulate commerce with foreign nations with the idea of to advance an America First trade policy advantageous to America’s common defense and general welfare as its priority.


Without a Fifth Column Media, Yellow Journalism, Hollywood, and a corrupted FBI, Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, would be making license tags in a federal penitentiary
