The middle class itself would have to have to rise up and declare war against our own government, and greedy corporate and business leaders. The government and corporate executives have the U.S. military on their side. It doesn't look good for the U.S. middle class. The forces aligned against it are great.
    Guys, the federal government can't tax a co that's not based out of the US.

    They can, however, raise the tariffs....
    WHY?

    I think your market is so big, the minute tariffs come into effect say on TVs or blenders Those companies producing will close up shop and move to Vietnam or Malaysia or back to Mexico. no tariffs allowed from Mexico due to NAFTA!
