Here’s a guy who is supposed to be on our side–and he doesn’t know how in the details of trade agreements the socialists are working their other games?
Shame on him.
I know all about David Ricardo’s well accepted thesis that trade is much better than tariffs and protectionism, but he pushes that and ignores the bad things that come from trade authority in the hands of a crazy leftist.
Recall the postings we have made here at JS about the warnings from Lawrence Kogan–how Europeans and internationalists work their political and legal agendas into trade agreements, things like precautionary principle policy regulations, under the guise of promoting international trade. And that doesn’t even touch the nature of the trade offs this anti-American president would slide into the agreements or provide for in the accessory enabling sections.
If we agree to something that doesn’t allow a withdrawal by successor governments, then this creepy leftist president commits the country to things that are permanent and harmful–what does Bob the smart guy say about that? Would he be considered a collaborator or a saboteur if he agreed to or argued for the trade agreement or is he just politically naive and stupid? Well I know damn well that McTeer is not stupid. I always thought he was really smart.
