Chuck Baldwin on Jobs

Constitution Party nominee for President; Reform Party nominee in several states


Reimpose tariffs on all foreign imports to keep jobs here

In order to keep jobs in this country, we need to have a trade policy that works in the best interest of the American people. To this end, I favor a tariff based revenue system, originally implemented by our founding fathers, & which was the policy of th United States during most of our nation's history. A tariff on foreign imports, based on the difference between the foreign item's cost of production abroad and the cost of production of a similar item produced in the United States, would be a Constitutional step toward a fair trade policy that would protect American jobs and, at the same time, raise revenue for our national government.

A Chuck Baldwin Presidency would signal the end to the stranglehold that the modern day moneychangers have over our economy and provide the opportunity for a rebirth of the American dream.
