Obviously never asked me. But then I suspect the above was either BS or paid for with taxpayers money.

Yep, and GM & Chrysler lost because they sucked their companies dry. Just like GM & Toyota, people are no different. If your house is paid for in full, very little or no debt as you saved during good times and now need a loan with a good credit rating life is easy. But if you are poor credit rating because you haven't been paying your bills, slacker at work and in debt at every turn your life sucks.
GM did it to themselves.
No one overseas (Asia or Europe) wants a over priced poor quality GM-CAW-UAW built car. That is why there is not much of a export market.

I never said that you nut.

Fair trade IS simple, yes. The only truly fair trade is one that allows every person to make his own choice. Anything that interferes with that makes the individual worse off. As I said before equal numbers of vehicles traded between nations is a stupid and impossible goal. Every transaction for a vehicle is done in terms of money, not vehicles. Our currency sent to Japan for a vehicle HAS to return to Canada at some point. It is worthless to a foreigner other to exchange it for third currency and again the principle still applies. Out money HAS to come back to Canada in exchange for something we export as a nation. It doesn't go into a hole in the ground or disappear. That export whatever it may be is job for someone here and part of a industry.
Your argument is short sighted and false as it looks only to one industry alone. And that is because you have a special personal interest in it.
It is not rational.

Price controls.

The gov already forces you to pay taxes without threat of violence, and will only go after defaulters.
Fair trade means what it says. For example, Japan doesn't (or didn't) allow any imports of US automobiles. That's not fair! Japan doesn't allow immigrants other than those of Jap descent i.e. they are a closed society. We allow almost anyone in - to our detriment. Even Mexico has stricter immigration controls than we do! Why am I talking about over-immigration - because it lowers our standard of living. Bi-lateral immigration has to be "fair" too!
Rush L. recently did a piece about immigration, describing all the restrictions on would-be immigrants - but at the end, we hear he is describing Mexico's immigration policy! - quite an eye-opener.
Are you 'fair' with the people you meet? Do you treat them like you would like to be treated? That's 'fair' - it's not taking sides, it's being reasonable and humane with your fellow man.

Shortages. Even Chavez knows that,

That is changing. The underground economy is growing.

You mean it is fair when CAW/UAW is better, unfair if they can't compete.

How old are you?

Come again> You contradict yourself in one simple sentence.

I don't differentiate. If someone has something to offer and I'm interested I have my price, he has his. If we agree we have a transaction. If not either can walk away and seek something more suitable.
Sounds pretty fair to me. You're talking about something entirely different. Your entering a third party who actually has no interest in the transaction directly. He has nothing to sell nor any desire to purchase. That third party wants to influence the transaction to favor one or the other. That is NOT fair.

He isn't that old, or he would be shy about showing his stupidity and how naive he is.

But you like I and most of North America believe in trade, and not price fixing extortion, racketeering and the like.
Which is really what price fixing protectionism and racketeering are all about. A small, greedy and dysfunctional union or business makes lots of noise to get protection so they can screw everyone else priice wise for their products.
The result is a lower standard of living and fewer people can afford the products. Plus quality suffers for those that can.

GM isn't about a deal, it is about stealing.

Then because they are stupid priced, people will not buy them. LOL. You protectionists just want to lower our non-auto standard of living. And I can do without buying a new GM-POC a whole lot longer than those asswipes can go without a job.
Guess what, more and more are seeing this auto-corruption for what it is, an industry that is worth shooting!! Yes, shoot the dogs and be done with it.
No one wants GM, CAW/UAW made crap.

I would insult you but I don't think it's fair to go into a battle of wits with an unarmed man.
