But it seems Trump is the one person bringing it to the forefront. If there are "problems" with it, as you said and I believe, why is he the villain here? Have your leaders been squakking about those problems?


Yes, about the right problems, government subsidized exports and such, and not made up problems.

Somebody needs to make a better case than "Trump is bad".


It is not "Trump is bad", It is "Trump doesn't understand trade", which is clearly evident by him not understanding what a trade balance is and how that comes about.

Then there's education. Look at the top ten and the bottom ten.

Oh look, more BS wallethub studies. Which doesn't say what you think it says. Ambigous "Education Attainment". Do you even know what that means? How about the one that means the most - "Student Achievement"?

So I went and looked. https://isp.netscape.com/news/fte/state ... testscores

Most notably, the 12% of the population residing in California can certainly change to outlook of the list a bit, huh? The 12% of the population which has the highest percentage of high school dropouts. 12% of the population which perennially ranks right down there with Mississippi and Louisiana in student achievement. 12% of the population, more than the 9 other bottom ranked states, red and blue - COMBINED.

States ranked from best to worst for standardized test performance:
1. Massachusetts
2. New Hampshire
3. Minnesota
4. New Jersey
5. Vermont
6. Indiana
7. Virginia
8. Washington
9. Connecticut
10. Wisconsin

41. South Carolina
42. Oklahoma
43. Arkansas
44. Nevada
45. California
46. West Virginia
47. Louisiana
48. Mississippi
49. Alabama
50. New Mexico

I wouldn't be quite so smug like that if I were you.


So you want to play the game to. Where exactly are you getting these numbers? Your link just gave test scores.

Tell me, in your exhaustive research what did you find in the area's what did you find when it comes to life expectancy, infant mortality and obesity. Since you made no mention of them I already know the answer. And since we're on the subject and you brought up California.
