North American Trade Agreement

The NAFTA is just another example of Uncle knows best and the Them vs. Us mentality of our government. The horse has long ago left the barn. The export of American jobs has been going on for years. All the NAFTA proposes is to help Canada and Mexico better compete with the Far East and to carve that help in stone.

If we added to the balance of trade the value of the jobs already exported to the rest of the world, we would have an incredible trade surplus. For our government to assist in the further theft, pillage and rape of the American worker is treachery.

Just who do these American corporations think will buy all the goods turned out by their overseas subsidiaries? Certainly not the factory workers in these Third World countries who are being paid $19 per month (China). And certainly not the American worker standing in the unemployment line.
