Problem with NAFTA
In this political season, we seem to be getting a lot of promises about reforming NAFTA. However, how would this be done? It is my understanding NAFTA is a treaty with two foreign nations, Canada and Mexico. Is it not hard to unilaterally abandon a treaty? I don't know, and if anybody has the answer, please tell me.

2. NAFTA is old stuff..
Edited on Wed Feb-18-04 08:57 AM by mac2
NAFTA is over ten years old. They are on to FTAA (Free Trade Agreement of the Americas) new agreements that have been broken and remade.

Go to the Public Citizen web site and read about trade and how it is being changed, the implications for workers, democracy, etc.

The Americas Union, or FTAA, is all of N.and S. America in a free trade zone consisting of government and open borders (like the EU). It is the formation of the World Union according to David Rockefeller, a member of the World Bank, by January 2005 (World Order is another word for it).

Bush's want the Capital of their new Union in Miami. Elder Bush wants it to come true before his death. It is his dream not ours.

That's why people are in the streets all over the world protesting...workers will have no rights. They will even write a new Constitution for the Unions. Have you been consulted about this in a vote? NO. Do you trust them to do that? Do you think they care about your benefits, jobs, pension, voting rights, etc.?'s all for profit by the few. Very undemocratic.

Will it be hard to break trade and government contracts when we have a fascist state? Think hard and long about that.

Fascism: A combination of government by big business that practices tyranny for profit of the few.

It needs to go....
