Apparently, Corporations Matter More Than Freedom to Our Leaders
Some call it the Transatlantic Free Trade Area (TAFTA) and others call it the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). They’re both the same thing, and they’re both dangerous proposals, pushed by President Obama, that will have disastrous effects on the economy, health, safety, freedom, and sovereignty of the United States and her citizens.
Just like the TPP, TAFTA/TTIP is being negotiated between the United States and the EU behind closed doors and between lobbyists and corporate leaders. Once again President Obama could care less about the public’s opinion of what he’s calling another beneficial “free trade” agreement. Otherwise there would be more transparency coming from Washington with respect to the negotiations and what exactly will be involved in the agreement.
The fact that this agreement is being negotiated in secret, while concerning, isn’t even the biggest issue. The problem with TAFTA/TTIP is that it will be so much more than a “free trade” agreement. After all, the U.S. and the EU already partake in trade with each other. This agreement is particularly dangerous because it will obliterate U.S. sovereignty and grant corporations control over the day to day happenings in our “free” society.
It will only benefit financial, agribusiness, pharmaceutical, chemical and other U.S. and EU multinationals. And President Obama is all for it.
As it stands now, TAFTA/TTIP will threaten our internet and other freedoms while pushing America into the New World Order.
Under President Obama, power and freedom will be given to multinational corporations who care very little for the common folk. Obama will even allow them to manipulate the text of the agreement to ensure the consolidation of financial, economic, and political power into their own hands!
What the President will never admit to the very people who elected him is that these greedy corporations are also dangerous because they are constantly looking for ways to boost their profits at our expense. The President of the United States is well aware that TAFTA/TTIP will allow corporations to go to extreme lengths like exposing entire populations to toxic food products, sacrificing the financial future of nations for short-term gain, destroying the environment, and even inciting war so they can sell weapons to war-torn countries around the world, and so on.
Basically, our Commander in Chief is more than willing to surrender the health, safety, freedoms and sovereignty of his people in order to appease already mega-wealthy corporations who stand to make more money from our suffering! This cannot be allowed. Now is the time to protest the continued negotiations of TAFTA/TTIP!
Let your Congressional representative know that they must stand against President Obama’s U.S. – EU trade agreement. Send this article to five of your friends and ask them to do the same!
