Trump should revitalize the Sherman and Clayton Antitrust Acts passed in 1890 and 1914, respectively. This is how he can repeal and replace GayMulattocare with something much better for the middle and working classes.
A commenter from Lion of the Blogosphere explains,
Trump needs to enforce the Sherman and Clayton acts against hospitals and insurance companies. That would drop healthcare prices by about 60-80% making insurance unnecessary. Basically prices would return to their 1960s levels relatively speaking (indexed for normal inflation). Medical care outpaced real inflation by 3-9% annually the past 50 years, hence why it’s so expensive now and why there are calls for socializing it.
Trump cratering interest rates by putting an end to the .gov debt machine should also be helpful. Right now we have massive job destruction occurring because of interest rate distortions. Example:
Microsoft purchases LinkedIn in what is probably the most non-accretive deal ever. Who benefits? Microsoft execs. Who suffers? All the people who lost their job due to redundancy. That includes many high paying middle and upper middle class management jobs. Repeat this 1000 times throughout the economy and multiply by unreasonable healthcare costs and you have millions of jobs being restored.
Why does Apple’s CEO need to run a company that runs 40% profit margins and is a $500B cap? What if we had 10 apple’s with a 10% profit margin (down scaled efficiencies) with 10 CEOs making 10% of Tim Cook’s salary?
Velocity of money would skyrocket multiplying GDP by a factor of 2-3 overnight.
There are surely non socialist ways to do this and normalizing interest rates is the first step.
Co-sign. Antitrust should be a priority in the Trump Administration. Enforcing these pre-post-America laws would also go a long way to breaking up the internet and media monopolies, reducing the stranglehold that the shitlib Left has on national discourse. And antitrust would redirect power from traitorous Silicon Valley oligarchs to the rest of the country. It’s all upsides.
Trump, I know you and your people are reading us. We on the alt-right — or heritage America, as I like to call it — want you to be a great President. Not just good; great. You can be a great President, but it will require massive balls to face down the corrupt self-enriching elite establishment for the next eight years. Which I know you have.
Reader robpaxton gets at the heart of it.
I don’t care if something is socialist or capitalist. The Age of Ideology is over. The only pertinent question is: What is good for my people?
The Age of Tribes is back. Now is the time for choosing sides.
