“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.

8 of the Auto Factories Moved to Mexico for Lower Wages Due to NAFTA


The North American Free Trade Agreement has been nothing but a disaster for the U.S. Just by taking a look at the auto industry, we see how thousands, if not millions, of auto jobs have been shipped down south.

Fat free use to be this great, healthy thing for our bodies and it turned out being the total opposite.

The Secret TTIP Agenda Is a Corporate Power Grab


Just how many economy-killing “free trade” agreements is our so-called Commander-in-Chief going to sign America up for? It should be noted that “free trade” agreements in the past haven’t exactly played out to the benefit of the average American.
