We Must Stop the TPP and Fast Track from Coming in 2015

fast track

It appears Obama’s desire for Fast Track Authority, which he wants so he can ram the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and later the TTIP through Congress, has been postponed until next year. He had not only wanted to acquire Fast Track Authority, but also to get the TPP passed before the end of this year. This year both houses of Congress have rejected putting Fast Track Trade Authority to the floor for a vote and seem to have delayed it until next session.

TPP: Highly Secret “Free Trade” Agreement Would Be Disastrous for U.S. Economy

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a “free trade” agreement that, if passed, would unite the economies of Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, Mexico, Canada, Japan and the United States. The trade negotiators from these countries meet secretively behind closed doors to continue their work on drafting the terms of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP). Little has been revealed about what was discussed during the closed-door meetings, other than the fact that the lobbyists and government representatives want to “accelerate” the trade negotiations. When it is finalized, the consequences for the United States will be disastrous.

Ignorance and Arrogance Are Destroying the Economy

Every sensible country protects its industries and companies from foreign takeover. Protectionism is a matter of self-preservation. Apparently American politicians are neither interested in being sensible nor are they interested in our nation’s economic survival.

We Must Stop “Free Trade” and Track Trade Authority

Fast Track

Despite the problems we have seen from our previous “free trade” agreements such as NAFTA, the United States continues to pursue more damaging trade pacts. President Obama is currently pushing the disastrous Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), negotiated secretly, which would put the United States in direct unfair competition with even more low-wage, low-regulation countries. We cannot continue down this road of economic destruction if we want the United States to remain recognizable. The future of our country for us and our children is at stake.

What Should We Be Thankful For this Thanksgiving? Very Little.

Today is Thanksgiving, and for most Americans that means sitting around a table eating some turkey and maybe watching some football or a parade. For many, there is little to be thankful for. Our economy is in shambles, unemployment remains high, and wages have stagnated for years.
