The idea of trade sounds good on the surface. We all like to have neighbors and trade our stuff for theirs. Specialization propelled our prosperity.
However, now many trade deals have shipped our most productive jobs overseas and thereby, sent some of our prosperity away. Some of these trades further enrich and prop up hostile foreign dictatorships.
There is a moral component to where we direct our finances. Is that what we want to do with our money?
Some people are trying to tear down our historic monuments because we don’t want anything that could remind us of the era when our Country allowed slavery. Yet we support slavery when it comes to slaves from other countries, particularly China, making goods for us to buy at cheap prices.
Our Country has become a big supporter of slave labor by trading with China.
China is essentially one great big slave plantation. Its barbaric practices are worse than the abuses that happened in our Country. Government officials can kidnap women and forcibly abort their babies if they didn’t get permission to be pregnant. Citizens, particularly Christians, can be kidnapped, tortured for years, have their body organs carved out and sold.
Our Nation has been betrayed by our own public officials who sold China our most sensitive military secrets. The Congress is not demanding accountability. The voters are not willing to oust their members of Congress. The only real solution is to educate the American people, starting with the American people wanting to be informed.
We don’t need the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) or Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) for our Country to trade with other countries. That’s just a trick to prevent us from being able to govern ourselves and use our own rules.
The end result is a loss of our sovereignty to a global agenda. As a result, we are not allowed to require labeling showing the country where goods originate. Why wouldn’t we want to know that?
Our President deserves credit for getting rid of the TPP. He has a few too many swamp creatures in his administration who are doing everything they can do to sabotage him.
We cannot pin all our hopes on one man. Our system was designed to distribute power to other branches. If you think Trump is going to take care of everything, you’re in for a disappointment because he is only one man. The deep state is real and it’s in both major political parties.
