Mission Statement: This blog reviews the news of the day in light of 242 years of American history. "Nationalism," a modern day pejorative, has been our country's politic throughout history, until 2008. Obama changed that narrative. Trump is seeking a return to our historical roots. Midknight Review supports this return to normality.
Rand Paul thinks "free trade" and "made in America" are opposities to each other.
Well, O.K., Rand is half right on this point. Just understand that Walmart and free trade can coexist with the notion of "Made in America." When I see "made in America," I have a choice as to what I will buy. Sounds good to me. I think THAT is free trade, as well.
Rand seems to think the two demands, "free trade" and "made in America," are counter to each other. But that is Rand for you. No wonder he stopped practicing medicine. A doctor who is half right, on occasions, is a problem, no?
