It seems America is not imploding fast enough for these sick psychopathic elite. Now it appears we need to give up more jobs and lose more control of our economy. I just want you all to remember that Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, and other “conservative” talking heads all pushed for NAFTA and GATT despite the Tea Party types screaming bloody murder about how this was going to destroy the manufacturing base of America. Remember how tomatoes and Reeboks were supposed to be cheaper? Remember how we were told that American tomatoes cost so much more than South American Tomatoes? Do you remember how we were warned that the South American farmers use dangerous pesticides on their food and we agreed to NAFTA anyway? Now, we have had massive poisonings, our food is no cheaper in fact it’s way more expensive now, and have you seen the cost of sneakers? So, the next time you hear Limbaugh, Hannity and the like pushing some free trade crap, just remember NAFTA and GATT.
You’ve been warned, and now Obama is pushing this scheme to destroy the middle class into overdrive:
June 3rd, 2013
Did you know that Barack Obama has been secretly negotiating the most important trade agreement since the formation of the World Trade Organization? Did you know that this agreement will impose very strict Internet copyright rules, ban all “Buy American” laws, give Wall Street banks much more freedom to trade risky derivatives and force even more domestic manufacturing offshore? If you have not heard about this treaty, don’t feel bad. Obama has refused to even give Congress a copy of the draft agreement and he has banned members of Congress from attending the negotiations. The plan is to keep this treaty secret until the very last minute and then to railroad it through Congress and have it signed into law by October. The treaty is known as “the Trans-Pacific Partnership”, and the nations that are reported to be involved in the development of this treaty include the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Peru, Brunei, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia. Opponents of this treaty refer to it as “the NAFTA of the Pacific”, and if it is enacted it will push the deindustrialization of America into overdrive.
The “one world” economic agenda that Barack Obama has been pushing is absolutely killing the U.S. economy. As you will see later in this article, we are losing jobs and businesses at an astounding pace. And each new “free trade” agreement makes things even worse.
For example, just check out the impact that the recent free trade agreement that Obama negotiated with South Korea is having on us…
–A 10 percent decline of U.S. exports to Korea
–The U.S. trade deficit with Korea has climbed 37 percent
–U.S. auto industry has been crippled
–Loss of U.S. control where international trade, banking and finance is concerned
–A projected 159,000 jobs will be lost
Wait a second – I though that “free trade” agreements were actually supposed to increase exports.
So why have they declined by 10 percent?
Did someone make a really bad deal?
And of course we have all seen the economic devastation that NAFTA has wrought.
When NAFTA was pushed through Congress in 1993, the United States actually had a trade surplus with Mexico of 1.6 billion dollars. By 2010, we had a trade deficit with Mexico of 61.6 billion dollars.
And “free trade” with China has turned out to be a complete and total nightmare as well.
Back in 1985, our trade deficit with China was approximately 6 million dollars (million with a little “m”) for the entire year.
In 2012, our trade deficit with China was 315 billion dollars. That was the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.
But instead of learning from the mistakes of the past, Barack Obama is pressing for more “free trade” agreements. MORE
