certainly unprecedented if you think about the last cycles. nobody wanted to be near george w. bush in 2008 because his approval ratings were in the 30s. al gore wanted to go his own way in 2000. he didn't want the sort of baggage of the clinton campaign, even though clinton had very high approval ratings at that point. this is something we haven't really seen. my goodness, barack obama and michelle obama have put everything out there. i mean, they have been campaigning so hard -- >> we've never seen anything like this. >> we've never seen this. of course, we saw obama in ann arbor, university of michigan, rallying those students there, millenials. he said, he voted. he voted for hillary clinton. and he kind of revived his speech from the convention saying, you've got to carry hillary clinton in the way that you carried me. so, you know, they are all in on hillary clinton. this is their candidate. and i talked to some folks in cleveland in the way they're using michelle obama vouching for hillary clinton to bring in african-american women voters who might have -- particularly younger a

. our founding fathers understood trade much better than our current politicians. believe me. george washington said that the promotion of domestic manufacturing will be among the first consequences to flow from an energetic government. alexander hamilton spoke frequently of the expediency of encouraging manufacturing in -- in, in -- the united states. and listen to this. the first republican president, abraham lincoln, warned that, "the abandonment of the protective policy by the american government will produce want and ruin among our people." he understood it much better than our current politicians. that's why he was abraham lincoln. i guess. ourl oran our original constitution did not even have an income tax. it had tariffs, emphasizing taxation of foreign, not domestic, production. yet today, 240 years after the revolution, we've turned things completely upside down. we tax and regulate and restrict our companies to death. and then we allow foreign countries that cheat to export their goods to us tax-free. how stupid is this? how could it happen? how stupid is this? as a result
