On Monday October 5, 2015, U.S. Trade Representative, Michael Froman, announced that the United States and 11 other Pacific Rim nations have finally reached an agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). I strongly urge you to read the post entitled, “TPP, TTIP, and TiSA… What would Washington Say?” I agree with Senator Jeff Sessions, that the TPP will lead us into economic then political union with Asia and the Pacific Rim nations, just as the European Union is a political Union that grew out of economic union. These trade unions will erode our independence, just as George Washington warned. I hope you will watch the seven minute video with Senator Sessions. I strongly urge you to oppose the TPP by contacting the proper government officials. The TPP has to be approved by Congress before we are committed to it. For more information go here. I received an email alert from the JBS about this, that may also be of interest. It exposes some of the secrecy in the wording of this agreement. For all the talk of transparency this administration is being very secretive about these trade partnerships.
