We have never had "free trade" but "managed trade". IF we had truly "free trade" the same regulations that are imposed on OUR products by our trade "partners" would be imposed on products imported from our trade "partners. The only way to have truly "free trade" is to have a tit-for-tat trade process by which the exact trade restrictions are imposed on countries that restrict our products. What's fair is fair . . .

The businesses that support and lobby for so-called free trade are always trying to wrap themselves in Ronald Reagan. But that's false because Reagan would not have allowed America to be cheated coming and going by foreign countries.

Of course, Reagan was for international trade, but he did not see it or use it as a stepping-stone to global governance; he did not accept cheating by foreign countries or rules set by panels of countries that hate and envy us or any vision of globalism. Reagan looked upon foreign trade as a component of American economic and military superiority...
