Free Trade Fanatics

In the blink of an eye, the most rabid of progressives have turned into free trade fanatics. It’s like they’ve been practicing for this their whole lives while sitting deep in a free trade closet.

  1. When you’re so into Hillary, you’re no longer a rabid progressive.

    There’s already been a weird undercurrent of free trade fanatics; Trump likes it, it must be bad. They’re a minority though; most people don’t give a shit either way. In Ohio, Brown and Ryan praised Trump. I think Dems and progressives here are probably supportive of this move, although I’m hearing that some people are concerned about how it will affect the auto industry, which is fair enough. I also get the argument that we only should’ve added a tariff for some countries. I still lean towards this being a good thing though.
