From what I know, trade with China and other less developed countries is often unfair against those countries rather than against the more developed countries. Clearly, these other countries rely much more or the US than the US does on them which doesn't really put them in the position to say no. I do kinda agree with your point that regardless of how you vote you are probably voting for your own benefit though. My previous statement was beyond exaggerated generalisation. It reminds me of some interesting conversations I had with a friend lately. His philosophy essentially is everything we ever do is for our personal benefit, even helping people out and getting nothing in return. The reasoning in that case is, we do it because it makes us feel good. It kinda makes sense biologically speaking but it's still a pretty flawed idea if you ask me. Sorry for taking a tangent here but it's been on my mind and it's interesting nonetheless.
