It amazes me that the party the runs on small government and free markets is never taken to task for things like this, steel tariffs and farm subsidies. Organizations such as the Cato Institute (a reference my previous post) and the Heritage Foundation are quite consistent in their views on government subsidies and take politicians to task on these issues constantly. The steel and farm subsidies are concessions from gutless politicians of both parties.Equally amazing is the flip side of Clinton railroading NAFTA through. I've taken to musing whether the Democratic Party should be the true political home of Free Traders like myself. As I recall NAFTA passed with overwhelming Republican support and was fought primarily by the Democrats in Congress and particularly those with strong union backing. NAFTA may have been a step in the right direction for Free Traders but is a ways removed from the ideal of free Free Traders like myself.Regards,fingfool
