    Don't tell me to leave because you are upset that the modern liberal has been disected into nothing but a social justice warrior.

    How many modern liberals are with trump on bringing jobs back to the US? The answer is, we don't know. We can't even hear them over the incessant crying about him being racist and sexist. Lol

    What?

    In terms of economic policy (and policy in general) the dems offered significantly more detail in the 2016 election than repubs.

    Trump has a plan to bring back coal jobs, bring manufacturing jobs, reform/scrap NAFTA etc etc, but with no real workable plan on how to achieve it.

    Look at the Carrier deal - didn't he basically offer them a tax break, then lay people off anyway? Seems like a poor policy all round.

    Why would American liberals not be supportive of greater employment?

    Nobody really gives a fuck about coal in the grand scheme of things. Manufacturing jobs on the other hand have been sold out over the last 2 decades and exactly what what was Hillary's plan to remedy that? Ughh, she was gonna do what Obama did yo!!!

    I haven't heard a single politician in power on the left or right actually produce a plan that is bold enougn to maybe make a change. Elighten me on the plans Hillary's cabinet had in mind.

    I would personally like to see a plan similar what Buchanan talks about in his interview with Nader. Threaten tariffs for jobs and enforce them if need be.

    Cheap goods flooding into the country looks great, on paper.
