That most certainly was an expansion of executive power not used before.

In the Senate, Rand Paul has the right instincts on several libertarian issues, including tariffs and Constitutional warmaking.


I was talking about on this site. Cid, who was struggling to think of an example of Trump's overreach, in particular.


Show me a libertarian or conk on this site who’s been a cheerleader for the tariffs? I personally blame the decision to go after China on tariffs for the decline in the market over the past 4 months. While I DO think something needed to be done about the unlevel playing field, and I DO believe that any “conversion” was going to be painful, Trump’s lack of decorum hasn’t helped the situation any.
