Over the next several days I'm going to write a piece on the man I feel was the only qualified presidential candidate in more than four decades, Ross Perot Sr. Right now, I'm focusing on the February newsletter, which (due to its size ~100pp) will be released on Monday or Tuesday (hopefully). Thereafter, I'll get back to this piece so check back.
For now, I want you to watch some videos on NAFTA, one of the most destructive pieces of legislature ever passed. It has destroyed millions of U.S. jobs, lowering the living standards of most Americans while raising the living standards of Asia and Latin America.
I'll give you a summary of how the criminals in Washington (representing corporations) sold NAFTA to Americans.
They sold it as a trade agreement that removed tariffs. According to supporters of NAFTA, this would enable a more robust flow of U.S. goods to Mexico, which would increase the number of U.S. jobs and create a trade surplus with Mexico.
Thereafter, this same line of reasoning was used to expand free trade across most of the globe.
What has happened has been the opposite. Millions of U.S. jobs have been lost because free trade created a portal for multinational U.S. ccorporations, which could expliot cheap labor in Mexico and elsewhere.
As the U.S. exported its manufacturing base across the globe, America began piling up huge annual trade deficits. These trade deficits have accumulated to form a good portin of the huge $12 trillion national debt.
And while American living standards continue to decline, living standards in Asia and Latin America have soared along with the profits of U.S. corporations.
First, have a look at a nice 2-part video on NAFTA. Let's call it "NAFTA for Dummies." It's a good video and a bit funny as well. Don't let the humor fool you. It's stunningly accurate.
Next, please have a look at a debate between Vice President Al Gore and ross Perot, moderated by Larry King.
Throughout the video series, you can see that Perot is disgusted with Gore.
Gore is a criminal. This is the man who takes credit for crediting the Internet.
This is the man who sold NAFTA.
Now he is selling the global warming scam. Click here if you are a scientist and you feel that global warming is a hoax. For the record, I signed the petition.
As I have discussed in the past, global warming is phase two of Gore's free trade scam because it accelerates the exportation of U.S. jobs to Asia and Latin America.
Gore is a fraud and should be in prison for treason.
Note, that I am not pro-labor union either. Labor unions can be good, but only if structured the right way. The UAW Union is an example of how not to structure a labor union and has served as America's poster child for labor unions. This is very unfortunate.
NAFTA is as extreme as labor unions like the UAW. Moderation offers the only real solution.
In the coming days, I will address NAFTA, the effects of unfair trade, and labor unions. Those who have read America's Financial Apocalypse understand how disasterous NAFTA has been.
Once again, please check back next week, as I finish this article.
