The Trans Pacific Partnership (“TPP”) has a name that sounds all friendly and cozy. Shockingly, it is exactly that – friendly and cozy, but only to the huge money power brokers. It is not nearly as friendly and cozy to you. In fact, you’re about to get knifed in the back.
Here is a link to a website with information about what it could mean. The appearance of this site is a bit bombastic, but the facts are there and you won’t like any of them.
TPP is an international trade agreement that is nearing completion of negotiations. It blatantly circumvents our Constitutional checks and balances and even our sovereignty. It will affect food safety, job off-shoring, financial regulation and more. And, as bad as that sounds, it isn’t the worst.
The worst is that this is being negotiated in secret. Not even our Congress knows what is going on. And the “worse” story gets even worse from there.
Our Congress is being asked to “Fast-Track” the TPP when it is up for a vote. What that means is that our Congress, the folks who are supposed to scratch chins and deliberate before taking action, will be asked to approve the TPP WITHOUT EVEN READING IT!
If you think your representative and senators ought to have the details first, as well as the time to consider and debate the merits of such a potentially cataclysmic piece of legislation before voting on it, then you better take action to defeat Fast-Track RIGHT NOW. Here is how you do it.

- Does this sound hyperbolic? Well, that’s exactly how you’ll feel when your job gets shipped away, the banksters get away with more fraud and phony foreclosures, and we’ve locked ourselves into an agreement where we need the approval of 17 other countries in order to protect you and the rest of our citizens.
- Take action now.
Ed. note: There is much in America that needs fixing and we are on a path to continually fail to make things better. It is my goal to make a difference – perhaps to be a catalyst for things to get better. That is the reason for these posts. To accomplish the goal requires reaching many thousands of people and a robust dialogue. Please help by passing this along and encouraging others to do the same. Thanks. JA
