No fast track for the Trans Pacific Partnership

By From page A8 | January 26, 2014

The Trans Pacific Partnership is a super sucking sound and the final blow to all, by the multinationals, to enslave the world and turn all governments into a puppet regime with no power.

If it passes, revolution will start and let’s stop enslaving the poor and meek. Blood must not flow for the elite like they want. They turn simple people against each other.

No, we will not wait for the crumbs to fall or even eat them.

    That's right, Carl! Do you remember the Ross Perot campaign some 22 years ago? He warned us about the "giant sucking sound" as all of our jobs went overseas due to the impending NAFTA agreement. People made fun of him. From Rush Limbaugh to Bill Clinton... they all made fun of Ross Perot and his warning of the results of NAFTA. Guess what... Ross Perot was right. The political right and the political left were all pro-NAFTA. There really is no difference between the "right" and the "left"... the Republicans and the Democrats. If there was, then things wouldn't ALWAYS be getting worse. NAFTA, and the subsequent "trade agreements", to include this new TPP and the coming European trade agreement, will continue to absolutely ruin this country. Just because your teams... with a "D" or an "R" says that these trade agreements are good... doesn't make them good (at least not good for you... they are great for the big mega-corps!).

    Absolutely. This letter is not exactly what i would write, but Ross was right. All these "Free Trade" agreements do is solidify corporate interests above the government's (we the people) interests. Every time one of these slips by, American workers are brought down to the lowest level workers in the world. We used to be the best paid workers in the world with the highest standard of living. Now we compete with the Chinese to see who can be the cheapest and our standard of living falls in direct proportion to the rise of the rest of the world's workers, almost person for person.
