That ship has sailed...

and I suppose it is a cargo ship bringing in goods from China.

Seriously, the genie is out of the bottle and international trade is not going anywhere. The biggest problem you have with what you want Willy is the American people don't want it. Yeah, everybody bitches about foreign goods and the Wal-Mart, but then why is the parking lot always so damn full?

Everyone knows that shutting off trade would shoot consumer prices sky high. Tell somebody that their iPhone is now produces in the U.S., but oh, by the way, instead of $400 dollars, its now $1200 dollars.
NEITHER PARTY will let that happen on their watch. The political toll would be too great.
