Some Freepers "get it" (regarding CAFTA)
Some comments...

Time to go fill out a job application at WalMart, if they're still hiring Americans...

*****

I just wish that free trade didn't come with quasi governmental organizations that suddenly get power over the American people.

*****

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO > :(

*****

The New World Order wins another one behind the "leadership" of the President of the United States Federation of North American States.

*****

"This is a test of American leadership in a changing world," said Rep. Kevin Brady (news, bio, voting record), R-Texas, a leading proponent of the agreement. "We cannot claim to be fighting for American jobs and yet turn our backs on 44 million new customers in Central America.

Horsecrap, Brady. As if we make anything that your new "customers" can afford.

*****

Say goodbye to the middle class.

*****

Great.
A blow to sovereignty is somehow a 'win' in the eyes of 'conservatives.'

But not to real conservatives.


*****

>>The New World Order wins another one behind the "leadership" of the President of the United States Federation of North American States.<< What you said.
Like the invasion of cheap labor into our country, only a few will benefit from this open, free trade cabal.

*****

Listen closely, you can hear the crystal glasses clanging.

*****

NAFTA has proved to be a disaster for our country. CAFTA may prove to be deadly.


*****

Win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win, win.......etc.

What a "moron".

Negative comments running about 1 to 3, which I thought was high for the Freepers.

Now I got to go take a shower...

4. Annoying post
Bush said that CAFTA free trade is fair trade. So much for pushing real fair trade.

For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
July 28, 2005

Statement by the President



STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

I am proud that the House of Representatives has acted to advance America's economic and national security interests by passing the CAFTA-DR agreement. CAFTA helps ensure that free trade is fair trade. By lowering trade barriers to American goods in Central American markets to a level now enjoyed by their goods in the U.S., this agreement will level the playing field and help American workers, farmers, and small businesses. The agreement is more than a trade bill; it is a commitment of freedom-loving nations to advance peace and prosperity throughout the Western hemisphere. We have a moral obligation and a vital national security interest in helping the democracies of Central America and the Dominican Republic succeed, and CAFTA furthers that goal. I look forward to signing this important legislation into law.

5. "...help American workers, farmers, and small businesses"
I notice he didn't include "big business" in his list.

I wish he'd explain how the other three will be helped.
