David Sirota - CAFTA's Impact on Millen Georgia
Mr. Sirota writes the following:
David's Hostile Takeover is one that I've been tackling slowly as it is full of gems. Seeing how CAFTA and Corporatist policies affect small communities like ours is critical in bringing some balance to our current government. There's nothing wrong with fair trade but NAFTA and CAFTA aren't making the grade. Peace ... or War!
... Washington politicians, operatives and lobyists want to pretend that trade is not a political issue - but it is increasingly taking center stage in many "red" districts and states.
Why is that the case? Because more and more Americans are realizing that the happy talk from the "free" traders of both parties is just that: talk. It's the "bait" we always hear everytime Big Money's newest sellout trade policy comes down the pike. And we are expected to forget the ensuing "switch" after the deal passes - the "switch" that leaves more and more of our communities for dead.
