TO THE EDITOR:
It is not about how much the tariffs cost billion-dollar automotive manufacturers, their executive bonuses or the investors, nor is it about how much more Americans like myself may have to ante up for a vehicle ("Big tariff costs would drag down sales, Robinet says," autonews.com, July 31). My prediction is the market and the manufacturers will adjust to the tariffs and the reaction of consumers, but regardless, what it is about is the ultimate good of our nation. It is about my children and grandchildren, perhaps yours as well, and the future of all Americans. It is about being independent and putting an end to the trade canyon that exists and America getting the short end of the stick shift, in every deal.
