Citizens pay for imports

Citizens have a choice of what they buy. They don't have a choice about taxes because it's either prison or execution if they resist. Taxes are payed by threat of gun/violence. BIG difference.

They don't have a choice about tariffs either.

How are tariffs enforced if not the threat of gun/violence?

What happens to you when you import things without paying tariffs?

Slap a 50% tariff on those bad boys. They need to be made in the country they're used in anyway.

Tariffs will make our country much richer than it is today. Only fools would disagree. We are using them to negotiate fair trade deals and, if countries are still unwilling to negotiate, they will pay us vast sums of money in the form of Tariffs. We win either way.

There should be an embargo on any country where homosexuality is illegal.
