    Voices of opposition on the right and left grow against the Trans Pacific Partnership and here is another such opposing voice on the matter which joins the growing chorus.

    TPP Is About Control, Not Free Trade

    The TPP would expand the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) "trade" pact model that has spurred massive U.S. trade deficits and job loss, downward pressure on wages, unprecedented levels of inequality and new floods of agricultural imports. The TPP not only replicates, but expands NAFTA's special protections for firms that offshore U.S. jobs. And U.S. TPP negotiators literally used the 2011 Korea FTA – under which exports have fallen and trade deficits have surged – as the template for the TPP.

    In one fell swoop, this secretive deal could:

    -----------------------------

    from what i heard, under these so called "trade agreements", the corporations can sue governments for hundreds of millions when a government passes or is about to pass a regulation which may protect the environment, their citizens, etc, and the corporation think it will affect profits.

    profits over people. all hail the king of money.

    It's a immigration scam .

    Discovered inside the huge tranche of secretive Obamatrade documents released by Wikileaks are key details on how technically any Republican voting for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that would fast-track trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal would technically also be voting to massively expand President Obama’s executive authority when it comes to immigration matters.

    realbrown1 Annoy a liberal today. Hit them with facts.

    OG, Obama's lying again.

    At this point, any Republican member of congress that accepts Obama's word for anything, needs to be tossed out of office.

    The Executive Branch did not write this law. It was written and passed by your conservative Legislative Branch.
    Who's lying now?

    You are.

    Or you actually believe members of Congress are negotiating.

    Either way reflects badly on you.

    To understand TPP and its history, one also has to understand the whole concept of Fast Track and how this has all played out.

    Is TPP becoming a game changing moment for some?

    The first step is to understand you do have a problem and then seeing it for what it really is!

    realbrown1 Annoy a liberal today. Hit them with facts.

    It seems like it's a game for you.

    And you are enjoying every moment of this.

    It's one of those times were you are correct.

    Sort of like a broken watch, right only twice eveyday.

    Both parties have members selling out America and the American working man.

    Because it is.

    Absolutely. Always do because in the end I'm ultimately winning.

    One of many actually but please, by all means continue.

    Whatever works for ya and makes you feel special. Little tidbit about time. Time is the slave owner's task master.

    So then what and how are you choosing outside that construct?

    While we debate the importance of a piece of cloth on a stick.....in other news where people aren't looking.

    When the mass of people are captured by a single debate which is mostly emotion, start looking around. Roaches like to scurry under the cover of darkness and seems they have been busy.
