NAFTA / Senate
Senator Partick Leahy was interviewed today on CNN about President Trump's new bilateral agreement with Mexico. Stating in part that not including Canada was petty.
Here is my rebuttal on the Senator's Contact Form:
Senator Patrick Leahy:“Excluding Canada, NAFTA won’t pass the Senate. I mean, the only way it passed last time was because Canada was part of it. It sort of falls in the same category, we’re all waiting for Mexico to pay for a wall. … Canada is our greatest trading partner. It comes across as petty.”Here’s a clue, Senator Leahy: I WANT NAFTA REPEALED. SHREDDED. BURNED IN THE TORCH OF LADY LIBERTY FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE.Free Trade agreements are not about economic give and take; they are about merging countries together under an unelected bureaucracy. No thank you. You can keep your superstate and the treason that is named: Globalism.I don’t want it. No one who understands NAFTA wants the agreement to remain intact.I realize I am not from your state, but I heard your interview and this rebuke is my answer: the only thing petty is dragging Americans and the world down into the mud just to make some spoiled imbecile richer. Globalism has destroyed lives and livelihoods.Time for a new strategy. Instead of stomping on people how about government officials learn to bring people up. It’s always been my philosophy: if I go up, you go up. I don’t step on people to get anywhere. As Americans, we should be treating others as well as ourselves this way. It’s called respect.Rip up NAFTA, return to bilateral agreements, and show some respect for the rest of us.Make it happen.Thank you,DL MullanPhoenix, AZ
