Trade Policy

Trade Policy

The Reform Party of KS advocates a Trade Policy that ...

  1. Operates within the boundaries of the U.S. Constitution;
  2. Restores Congressional authority to regulate commerce;
  3. Safeguards American labor, health, safety and environmental standards from cheap imports;
  4. Eliminates trade deficits;
  5. Protects U.S. jobs and industry in order to ensure the blessings of liberty to all Americans and their posterity.

A vital national trade policy shall require ...

  1. A strict "Buy American" policy that patronizes American made goods;
  2. A rigid ban on imported products of child, prison, or slave labor;
  3. U.S. ability to manufacture and stockpile all products vital to maintaining U.S. strategic military strength and national security;
  4. The ability to feed our own people;
  5. All food sold in the United States must be clearly labeled with the country of origin.

The Reform Party of KS will support candidates for federal office that support the following positions ...

  1. ALL international trade agreements are in fact treaties and as such must be passed by a 2/3 super-majority in the U.S. Senate;
  2. "Fast Track" trade negotiating authority shall not be abdicated to the Executive Branch;
  3. A complete U.S. withdrawal from the following institutions: World Trade Organization (WTO), North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), International Monetary Fund (IMF), and World Bank;
  4. Revocation of Most Favored Nation trade status from any nation that restricts the basic human rights of workers;
  5. Required revenue tariffs on all foreign made goods sold in the United States to achieve balanced trade, and replace federal income taxes.
    The above positions demonstrate that the economic process currently labeled as "free trade" actually represents a "race to the bottom". By adhering to the above positions, the United States will guarantee its ability to be self-sufficient through bilateral trade and negotiation with other nations.
