The United States joined the World Trade Organization (WTO) in the mid-1990s with the promise of increased prosperity, but the result has been quite the opposite. Our membership in the WTO has stripped us of jobs, as well as our ability to choose the best policies for our country. The WTO is the embodiment of the free trade principles that have failed our country again and again. We must rid ourselves of our obligation to this job-killing organization if we ever want to restore America’s economic greatness.

Our political leaders often deemphasize the downturn in American manufacturing by touting a focus on areas such as new, high tech manufacturing and alternative energy, but it appears China has the same goals and is taking targeted steps to meet them.
The United States was once the world’s factory. We manufactured everything. Since opening up our borders through “free trade” agreements, we have not only lost that title but have put millions of Americans out of work in the process. Any American looking at the facts can see that “free trade” has been a bad deal for the United States.
