We are over a year away from the presidential elections and the 21 declared candidates haven’t failed to receive media coverage. All except a few like Bernie Sanders.

Free Trade – the Kiss of Death for Our Economy

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.

“America the Beautiful” Is Now Just a Distant Memory

America was once a prosperous country that was looked upon with envy by foreign nations. In the 1950s our economy was strong and the future looked promising. Our infrastructure was expanding and industrial production was booming. Clearly, we were on the right path. In the past, we produced over 90% of the goods we consumed. Our survival depended solely on the strength of our citizens—the way it should be.

Are Our Leaders Clueless or Just Apathetic?

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). In fact, “free trade” lines the pockets and ambitions of CEOs and politicians while shipping American jobs overseas.

Many American’s Don’t Trust So Called “Free Trade”

Usually, anything with the term “free” on it has a positive connotation: free cookies, free appetizer, free purse with the purchase of any item over $45, this salad dressing is fat free. However, using the example of “fat free,”when we ran some studies on supposed “fat free,” we found nasty results. Fat free use to be this great, healthy thing for our bodies and it turned out being the total opposite. Now that people have been burned by “fat free,” they are buying less and less of it. The same issue has been going on with “free trade.” At first, it was great! It was this new idea of trade without tariffs or duties and that benefited any partnering country. However, after indulging 20 years in “free trade,” we realize how bad it really is for America.
