    Import Certificates

    The $5000 dollars is used to buy US assets. It is not thrown into an incinerator and burned. No one would ever trade with us if that was the case. US dollars are not currency in China! They can't do anything else with it. The balance of payments always adds up to 0. Why historically have...

    Import Certificates

    First question, because they are literally investing into an American bond, for whatever that bond is being used to raise money. Second question, if you choose a chinese product over american I'm assuming you mean it is because of price so we will start with that. So if Chinese price is lower...

    Import Certificates

    Nope, its called a balance of payments. Current Account + Capital Account = 0. The trade defecit is matched by investment coming into the country.

    Import Certificates

    It does not take GDP down. GDP = Income = Total Expenditure. You can't buy stuff without first having the money. All your proposal would do is lower the purchasing power of our income by driving prices up.

    Killing Homosexuals Is Not ISIS Law, It Is Muslim Law

    That is because at that time Christianity went thru the Protestant Reformation, which many of the reforms were things described by Goshen.

    Why should I have to pay dramatically more for products? All this does is make the US poorer.

    Why It's Foolish To Select Kasich As VP

    All complete speculation on my part. Trump wants the conservative vote without having to work for it. That means getting Cruz's endorsement, which he is not going to get unless he asks Cruz to be his running mate. But Cruz being the stand up guy he is will turn it down. So he will hit up the...
