1. first of all these so called trade agreements have very little to do with trade

YOu do know that , right?
Mostly it is about corporate rights, and not restricting the profit of corporations and extending the protection of patents so companies can ripoff the public on medication longer.
A trade bill would be shorter and simpler to agree to, but not these corporate rule books. they are about how you cannot deny a corporation this or that.

Oh there is stuff on there about not using slave labor and child labor and letting labor organize, but not to worry, those things are never investigated or punished, they are just the shiny object to distract the complete takeover of corporations on the world - so yes, I am totally against these trade agreements, I want a simple agreement about trade, Not about extending patent rights of companies that developed these medications with government help and then want to rip us off.

So give me a trade bill that is jsut a trade bill and not a give away of my rights to a corporation and I will be there. But the crap that our government is producing now - ditch it.
