How the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Could Hurt You

Say NO to the TPP

The TPP is billed as a “free-trade” agreement between the United States government (representing the interest of the large corporations who have bought it) and 11 countries – Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.

Here is the only question you need to ask yourself – if trade were allowed to be free amongst individuals, companies, and other individuals and companies – why would you need an agreement?

Free trade, in its simplest form, means that people are free to trade with other people.  You don’t need an agreement, or a pact, because people are free to do what they want, and individuals and the market will respond accordingly. That is what “free” means.  If there is nothing stopping someone – they are free.

However, the TPP could very well end the freedom of individuals to both trade freely with other individuals, as well as have their individual rights eroded.

The agreement would allow food products from other countries into our nation’s food supply as long as the exporting country says they are ‘safe’.  This is a grave danger to the health and well-being of America’s citizens who enjoy the ability to consume foods that are extremely regulated in comparison to other countries, especially when it comes to the use of toxic pesticides and monitoring of heavy metals. Food labels could actually be considered a “trade barrier“, and the TPP would rather allow products to flow “freely” without allowing people to know where exactly their food is coming from.  And of course, I believe, that consumers deserve to make an informed decision of whether or not they want to eat a product – and the country of origin is certainly part of that decision.

Small companies and producers never benefit from such large, over-reaching agreements.  Only gigantic multi-national corporations, who purchase our representatives in Washington, need this type of blanket agreement with other governments – to preserve their trade.

The smoking gun here is that our government, that promised un-compromised transparency, will not allow us to see the actual text of the TPP agreement.  However, Wikileaks has a portion of this document available here.

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton won’t speak to this issue, as another smoking gun, that the TPP is latent with corruption and does not deserve the support of our representatives.  We hope you will make an informed decision about who should represent you in 2016, and consider “cleaning your house” as a precaution.

Never Be Afraid of Your Government – Case Gyrocopter Mailman

So, believe it or not, a man (Doug Hughes) who broadcast his plan to fly his gyroscope ‘non-violently’ to the capitol to deliver a message to Congress – was not stopped by the military, police, or otherwise – he made it all the way to the capitol lawn.

Now, this is some gutsy civil disobedience!  He is incredibly lucky that he wasn’t shot on landing, and we are glad he is alive and okay.

I believe this is a very strong testimony to the very painful misallocation of resources when it comes to Homeland Security.  In addition to resources, it is probably saying something about the organization and culture of people who are supposed to be “protecting” the American people.  Because if someone can fly a gyrocopter onto the lawn of the capitol, without triggering some type of alarm – there is a real problem.

Do we really believe that the federal government can “keep us safe”?  I would think that giving them the authority to patrol our borders and capitol against terrorists is a good thing, but when it comes to our own States, cities, counties, and homes – I think I would rather protect myself!  Or depend on a State or local government have more control, where I can keep an eye on them.

I am happy that the non-violent protest of civil disobedience by Mr. Hughes ended with him alive and probably in a lot of trouble.  What a wonderful reminder that “government” is only as smart and savvy as the people IN government.  I hope you consider cleaning your house this election and voting in some new blood with a new focus on effective policies that truly protect people.

Flush 'Em ALL Out – WE ARE TERM LIMITS!

We must get new, fresh faces in Congress.  The representatives who are there now have been there TOO LONG and are corrupted.  The Rebellion Rule is simple – two terms, and you’re done.  No matter how good or bad a job they do and no matter what party you normally support, vote out anyone after their second term.  This is effective and the quickest way to get the attention of either party so that they produce better candidates and better policies.  Entrenchment equals corruption and two terms isn’t enough time for the special interests to entrench a party or elected official.

This is the quickest way to actually grab ahold of your freedom before it’s gone.

It is too late to infiltrate or change the corrupt two-party strangle hold.  You will never be able to win when you follow the rules of people who can change those rules at any time to stop you.

Voting out these politicians after two terms benefits our country because it creates unpredictable outcomes.  Some would say this is not a benefit but will ‘harm the nation and its people’ (these are usually people who make their living from being a sycophant in either of the corrupted parties).  Let’s face it, the corrupt people and parties in place today already harm the nation… they have a track record of failure and anything is better than letting those traitors continue to rule us.  A peaceful rebellion is our next option.  We must exercise this option before our current leaders impose rule or law that forces people to react in violent ways.  We advocate peaceful solutions even when our government provokes violence for their own power gain.

Clean your house this election!
