Your economy, a reflection of your society, is not our problem, it's yours. Looking around for someone to blame, rather than taking the blame you deserve, is called scapegoating. One sees a lot of it in 3rd world repressive societies. Sorry to see your now defining yourself as poor oppressed helpless victims who's only out is to attack innocent neighbors to take the heat off your failure

Fk China.

What happens when a business loses its customers? They go out of business.

Right now THEY ARE THE BUSINESS AND WE ARE THE CUSTOMERS.

Lets bring the jobs back home and no longer buy anything from China. Put them out of business so to speak.

Why buy jeans form china and send the money there? What can they make we cant?

And I believe an American made jean for example will still cost $30. Its just that Levi's will have to be satisfied with a REASONABLE profit.

Fk china. Bring the jobs back and DONT GIVE THEM ACCESS TO OUR "CUSTOMERS" anymore.

Innocent of your problems, which are of your making. Did we force you down the path of socialism/stateism/Kenseyism? Are we responsible for the civil war you now tearing your country apart? Is it our fault you borrowed your way into near bankruptcy? You massively lost jobs because your unions shortsightedly priced themselves out of the market. Did we do that to you? You tax and regulate your businesses out of any possibility of making a profit, and they left the hostile environment for countries that understood basic economics. These are self-inflicted wounds

But are you innocent of your own problems? All of your right wing talking points to the side what about China?

China has thee worse environment in the industrialized world.

China has an ongoing genocide against its own people by way of its "One child policy".

You are the world's #1 Human rights violators.

Infanticide!!! Communisum!!! Slave labor!!!...and you have the nerve to question American policy. GTFOH!!!

Not exactly.

The US was kind enough or foolish enough to allow China access to our markets and that has killed American manufacturing jobs.

We could solve our problems by putting a tariff on Chinese goods to make them more expensive.

Of course we have problems, challenges, which we are working on. "Infanticide!!! Communisum!!! Slave labor!!!" are not among them however. If you think, as it seems, we're your "enemy", you should follow the adage "Know your enemy". Your off-target attacks only make you look confused

This is a national security issue.

China is intentionally destroying our economy.

They must be dealt with swiftly and harshly.

You need to think it thru a little more. Suppose you completely stopped all Chinese imports. what would happen? The next lowest cost producer country would step in, no net benefit to you, not one job. You would literally have to hermetically seal yourself off from the rest of the world, a fortress America. Erect an impenetrable fence with Mexico, and Canada. Nothing in, nothing out. This is the logical extension of your position. Is that what you want?
