Response to applegrove (Reply #17)

19. Not without the right to demand anything,

and that right will take centuries or bloodshed to achieve. People in 3rd world countries are oppressed by their governments. Take Mexico. Why would one 70 year old life long farmer/rancher seldom ever had to carry water during his lifetime of farming while the norm 500 miles away is that every farmer transport water by hand or beast..to this day? It is the government allowing for merely subsistence survival of the people and corruption eating up the profit from the sweat of the people. This will not change without it being a condition of participation, with violations leading to increasing levels of tariffs or trade sanctions. Free trade, as it has been shoved down our throats bi-partisanly, will do little for the plight of 3rd world slaves and has resulted in massive unemployment here. Many, many people would get behind a candidate who promised to reform our trade agreements..they are broken.
