>>3772162>It is very silly that you justify the Trump tax cucks for corporations and deregulation of how banks can gamble with toxic debt, by arguing that it is going to help US labor compete with a country that has more people getting paid a dollar a day, than our country has people.
Meant to say that generally.
The point is that China literally has more people getting paid under the global poverty level or whatever than the US has people. China's PRIMARY strength is the number of people that they can throw at a thing. Taxing our companies for utilizing their cheap communistic labor doesn't stop them from having like 500 million poor people. In fact we are helping them evolve out of their communistic economic policy towards a more favorable capitalist economy. They are where America was during the industrial revolution. We had a bunch of people willing to work for cheap in factories that were innovating the manufacturing industry. And that led to unfathomable prosperity for the US that established them as a global powerhouse like nothing ever before experienced in history.
It's like we started as the bastard son of a failing empire, and then we rebelled and built a nation and an ideology unlike anything before, and we repeatedly played referee in resolving the bickering in Europe, and built our own Empire from a kernel of what we started with.
We started at the bottom and now we up here. The reason why I think American "conservatism" has become pathetic in the last ~40 years is that they've essentially entirely abandoned everything that kept the concept of American Exceptionalism afloat.
Like why the fuck do you want us to only really be competing with fuckstates like Mexico and China? Those places suck. We don't want our lives to be like those of the people that live in those places. If they want to sacrifice the qualify of life for hundreds of millions of people so that we can sweaters for cheap as fuck, good. Fuck em. That's their goof.
