Stop The Trans-Pacific Agreement

Monday, February 10, 2014

Well, my fellow Americans, I see that among all those millions out of work in this country, none have the sense, the talent, or the inclination to make and install floorcoverings so off we go to the Netherlands along with whatever jobs may be lost for the glory of big business. 

It is time for the absent of mind liberals to learn to follow the dots.  Their self-imagined demi-god in Washington and his helpers in his Council of Mayors are selling our country, our ingenuity, our jobs, our futures, and our ability to provide the necessities of life for ourselves and our families, bit by bit, to foreign countries and promising us a better life in a socialist, one world order, third world country under the watchful eye of the UN and other foreign powers.

Start counting how many foreign countries own part of our United States of America and have been working here for years and benefiting more than we are aware (until something like the UAW moves in).  There is a good, honorable, and bi-laterally profitable way to do business with foreign countries.  Trade agreements are not one of them.  Neither is politicians unilaterally handing over the taxpayers' assets to whet their economic advantage and money-making appetite to come here along with all the hype that thousands of jobs will be created. 

Get informed and do what you can to stop the push for the pending Trans-Pacific agreement that the President plans to fast-track through Congress.  That means for information only.  No amendments will be accepted and the agreement will be signed.  "No amendments" means that the free citizens of this country, guaranteed to us by the Constitution, will have no right to vote making sure on the Executive Branch's intention that the Legislative Branch of our government is unnecessary so silence the voice of the people.  And all of this while Iran plans to float its battleships near our coasts as has never happened in our history.  Is there anyone out there who thinks this is brotherly love....or are you with me and the intimidation theory.

Tough days and tough decisions are hanging over Congress.  Help them make those decisions based on the power of the peoples' voices.  Drown them with paperwork, e-mails, and any other source of input.  We Americans matter.
