If an enemy was seeking to hire someone to destroy America he might have hired the political leaders who created the foreign, undemocratic World Trade Organization (WTO), job killing North American “Free Trade” Agreement (NAFTA), the disastrous Korean-U.S. “Free Trade” Agreement (KORUS FTA) and the pending unholy trinity of trade agreements – the TPP, TTIP and TISA.

Free trade sounds nice, but it is an extremely misleading policy. In actuality the practice has wrought havoc on the American economy. It appears as though our leaders are either apathetic or clueless when it comes to the United States’ involvement with free trade agreements (FTAs).
