Stop The Trans Pacific Partnership

We are at the end of the "game" that has been going on for the last six years. The one where 600 corporate executives and lobbyists have written in secret the Trans-Pacific 'Partnership' (TPP) treaty that they have refused thus far to show us or our elected representatives in Congress. The only reason we know any of what's in it is leaks which are terrifying and boil down to a true Global Corporate Coup that would make us the United States of Corporations. I've posted and posted to the point that you MUST understand the meaning of this, that is, loss of democracy and freedom to the .001% ultra-rich corporatists who have written the TPP. PLEASE, JOIN ME IN OPPOSING FAST TRACK TPA and TPP (also TTIP/TISA/CETA, other UNFAIR "TRADE" bills). These are all Trojan Horses, full of poison for the 99.999% of the people. If you have questions about this, call me: 817-921-0433. The individuals in Congress who have been bought lock-stock-and-barrel by the .001% (thanks to the Citizens United decision by SCOTUS) plan to FORCE THE VOTE THIS THURSDAY ON THE FAST TRACK TPA legislation that will cut the legs out from under our Congresspeople and force them to vote on legislation they have not had access to, nor been able to amend or study as they are supposed to do before voting on ANY bill. "FAST TRACK TPA" is the POISON PILL. If it were to pass, our congresspeople will be powerless to make any changes to the TPP. Of the 29 chapters of TPP, only five (5) are even about "trade," the rest are the corporations slicing, dicing, wheeling, dealing, and stealing our freedoms. Please, help us help "WE THE PEOPLE" continue to have a say in how our country is run.

Stop The Trans Pacific Partnership

The TPPA would impoverish millions of people in Vietnam, Malaysia, Peru, Chile, Mexico, and even Australia, New Zealand - Aotearoa, Canada, Japan and the United States because it would increase the wholesale price of medicines by up to 10 times. This is more than enough reason to resolutely reject the TPPA. However, it also includes severe attacks on people through broad monopoly rights to corporations in Intellectual Property and Copyright. Worst of all it empowers foreign corporations to sue governments in countries where they invest if any government policy or law somehow 'harms' their investment, or they are not fully consulted about a new law or policy. This is a big reduction in democracy - all at the demand of US corporations. In return, people in the 11 other countries should not expect any significant extra access to US markets for their exports. US Trade Representative Froman really represents giant US corporations, not the American people. I am incensed that the Australia government has even entertained this kind of weird 'negotiation', and it can only be explained by a desire to please a 'great and powerful friend' - it is mainly motivated by fear. The Australian people don't live in fear, they live in freedom, and can stop this dangerous negotiation.
