Tariffs for Small Businesses

In the beginning of the America's history, there were high import tariffs on foreign goods to protect the delicate, newly developed industries in America. And it worked.

Now, in a time where good jobs are scarce and our economy is faltering, a small business has little chance of survival because it can't compete with the corporate giants and cheap foreign products. If America implemented high tariffs on imported goods again, and created a "competition tariff" for businesses, say for the sake of argument over 500,000 employees large or over 1 million in net worth, it would increase the ability for American manufacturers and small  businesses to compete, promote true diversity in the marketplace, create American industry jobs, and lower the prices of locally produced goods.

What do you think?
