The secret plan that will control your life....TPP

This is a must read of what the 1% are doing NOW to tighten control over all of us.

International trade negotiators gathered this week at a posh golf resort in rural Virginia to hammer out details of the proposed Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP)
Here are some snippets, full article is recommended.

The TPP is called a ‘trade agreement,’ but in actuality it is a long-dreamed-of template for implementing a binding system of global corporate governance as bold as anything the world’s wealthiest elite has attempted before. Of the 26 chapters under negotiation, only a few have to do directly with trade. The other chapters enshrine new rights and privileges for major corporations while weakening the power of nation states to oppose them. The TPP essentially proposes to establish a parallel system of justice where companies can sue countries in a tribunal of judges composed of unaccountable international trade lawyers with little to no process for appeal.


While 600 corporate lobbyists have been granted access and input on the draft texts from the beginning,
even high-ranking members of Congress have been denied access to the most basic content of what US negotiators are proposing in our names.


Thankfully, draft texts of the proposal have appeared on Wikileaks
and the website of Citizen’s Trade Campaign.

It is difficult to overstate the potential implications on the lives of people around the world if anything like the agreement in these leaked documents were to be implemented with the force of law.

11. "will pass without our even knowing what's fully in it until the deed is done."

sorta like TARP, and the Patriot Act, ect.

Except THIS is not even going to be a Congressional vote...it is an extra-judicial "agreement",
made by the 1%.
They have dropped all pretense of purchasing Congress, and are acting on their own.
Think about that.
and remember when people used to laugh at the phrase "New World Order".

12. I know....it's disgusting ....but will be supported in

this election...because the choices are between "Evil" and someone we still hope will "Listen."

What a sad choice.....

10. The dumbest thing America has done in a long time.

Possibly even dumber than the Iraq war, and that was pretty stupid.
