FTAA impact devastating

Like the United Nations and the European Union, the proposed FTAA will have a devastating impact on both U.S. businesses and jobs. The current alphabet soup of “trade” agreements have forced many American companies to hire foreign workers and to start outsourcing jobs (the new catch-phrase for manufacturing American products in foreign countries). Perhaps you have noticed “Made in China” is all too common.

The FTAA also has revolutionary consequences: 1. It will open our already porous borders. 2. It will eliminate the sovereignty of 34 nation-states by merging them under the authority of an anti-America regional government. 3. It will entrench a Socialist/Communist, poverty-producing bureaucracy. 4. It will establish a regional, U.N.-like government that will replace our sacred Constitution/Bill of Rights. And here is the frightening part: both the Republicans and the Democrats know this will be the result, yet they both openly support the proposed FTAA.

Support no candidate or political party that supports the U.N. and/or FTAA.
