Home Letters To The Editor Trade pacts have negative influence on U.S. trade health

For example, the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has only 5 chapters of the 29 that actually deal with trade.

They are detrimental to our economy and would lead to the eventual economic and political integration of the United States with eleven or more Pacific Rim nations and the European Union (EU).

The once sovereign nations in Europe joined the EU, having been sold on the premise that it would be good for their economy. Today the EU rules supreme at the expense of the individual nation’s sovereignty. We need to avoid the same trap.

Unlike Free Trade as advocated by Adam Smith, these Pacts are about destroying American sovereignty.

For more information, go to www.thenewamerican.com and type "trade pacts" in the search window. 

Then please contact your D.C. legislators and urge them to pledge now  to vote (whenever they come up for a vote) against the TPP and TTIP agreements.
