American Revolutionaries organized tariffs, boycotts, and demonstrations to start a trade war in favor of American industry. That Republican virtue placed constitutional rights and the public good over private greed.

That promissory note on the American Dream has been stolen under the corrupt authoritarian kleptocracy of the fascist Trump Ring including RICO Scott and Associates.
