In his new book UNCONSTITUTIONAL, Roger Simmermaker explains how free trade policies were not only contrary to what our Founding Fathers had in mind but also why they are hurting our economy today. He clearly and strongly points out the utter fallacy and failure of “Free Trade”. He boldly makes a case for returning to the “American System” of domestic tariffs on imports to once again make trade fair for the United States.

In his book, Unconstitutional, Roger Simmermaker advocates a brand of economic protectionism that dates back to the American forefathers. Showing unequivocally that many of America’s past Presidents and policymakers rejected the notion of free trade, in favor of beneficial trade, Mr. Simmermaker suggests that trade should happen when it does not hurt labor and environmental standards, and when it does provide products and services unavailable in the USA. Foreign companies do not contribute equally to the social and economic order of society and should, thus, not benefit in the same way. While I am a strong proponent of free trade, throughout the world, semi-regulated free trade, the current status quo, has led to America’s financing and subsidizing of other countries’ development, trade and employment.

This book documents some of the pitfalls of free trade very well. It explains that we must be careful as we enter into trade agreements to protect the American worker.
Representative Darren Soto
America has always been a country of entrepreneurs, builders, and creators. As we work to restore our economy, it is important to stand behind the American companies that make good products, maximize U.S. employment, and earn the loyalty of their workers and the communities of which they’re a part. Roger Simmermaker introduces us to fifty companies doing just that, and explains how we can all be part of a strong national recovery.

Roger, you make people think and, on China, you make people stand up! Not bad. You’ve been way ahead of the crowd!
