15. This T- PeePee is a Teabagger's dream

It sets up a separate legal system, and extra special privileges, for corporations to control governments and their citizens through unelected Tribunals packed with corporate friendly judges.

It has very little to do with trade and very much to do with controlling the citizens of a country.

Since Teabaggers love the money they get from corporations, they should just love this NAFTA on steroids.

What really boggles my mind is how our federal government is going along with this corporate T-PeePee and keeping it a deep DARK SECRET from their citizens, obviously against the wishes of their citizens, and taking power away from the very government that is putting together this treaty. It is giving more power to corporations than to our Constitution and laws.

If this piece of T-PeePee is passed, our government would be nothing but a clearing house for enforcing corporate rule. It will make our President, House of Representatives, Senate and Supreme Court powerless and practically useless.

Why would our own government be developing a document in secret to take away their own power?

Has fascism so invaded our politics that elected officials can't see when their power is stripped away by corporations?
