Religious Freedom Trade Act of 2015

Every nation that does not permit freedom of religion shall have all their imports to the United States taxed at a rate of 10% in addition to any other taxes and without regard to any other trade agreement.

Communist China, Saudi Arabia and all other Communist nations and most Islamic nations would have to pay this tax. It would send a strong message to these nations that if they want to sell products to the United States they will pay a price for religious oppression. The Congress should certify each nation annually that they provide their people with freedom from religious oppression.

I have no problem with a nation that wants to base their laws on a religious belief system. I am okay if they want to have an official religion, even if that religion is not my religion. What I want is for nations to allow their citizens to believe whatever they want to believe and that they be able to worship their God in the manner they choose to worship. The United States should stand for freedom; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
