The TPP is the single most dangerous piece of legislation to happen here in the US ever. It is worse than Vietnam, worse than the Iraq fiasco, worse than 9/11, even worse than the economic crash of 2008. It will destroy this country and make us all subjects to our new corporate overlords who will control us completely, something a lot of Americans won't say boo to because they will be too busy staring at their new smart phone, which will also be spying on them.
For those unfamiliar with this treaty it gives sovereign power over nation states by corporations, something they have been fighting for since the 1800's. When they couldn't do it by force, they gradually took over the government until they controlled it to do as they wish. Citizen's United gave them that ability and now they stand to use it with the acquiesce of our traitorous Congress and President. If this does pass, and chances are pretty good it will, Obama will go down as the worst president in American history. Anyone who can out awful Bush is a serious dick as this treaty will eliminate the US as a free country and establish a corporate shadow government that will write our bills, elect our politicians and enslave us completely. This is not some weird conspiracy theory but fact as the terms of this bill leaked out so far say our food will be less safe, our water less clean, our jobs less plentiful and medicine even more expensive. Who wants any of that, regardless of party?
There is a lot of reason to fear our guns taken away from us for exactly this reason. The TPP, or NAFTA on steroids as it has been described, is the final nail in the coffin of freedom and it is a worldwide push to set a fascist agenda for many of us, which is exactly what the TPP will usher in. It is not implausible, although highly unlikely, that some of these shootings lately may be staged, in that the guy who did it was somehow programmed to do it. Mind you I do not believe that for one second but it is also not out of the realm of possibility, no matter how remote, thus me bringing up for the sake of argument.
This push for globalism will result in even more jobs being lost, wages plummeting even further here and automation reducing the workforce by as much as 50% over the next ten years. Even now, foreign workers are outnumbering native born ones by as much as three to one because they will work harder for less money, causing salaries in high tech skills to drop precariously. With the TPP, work visas will be even easier to get, meaning even less jobs for Americans. How does that benefit anyone but the top 1%?
There are two candidates who oppose the TPP: Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, which are not surprisingly the two most marginalized candidates out there. Carly Fiorina, the worst politician in the history of this country, is in 2nd in some polls. WTF America? Hillary is still doing better than Sanders and she has waffled on what she thinks of the TPP, as she helped get it passed as Secretary of State. Why is anyone voting for anyone who thinks the TPP is a good idea as both Fiorina and Clinton do?
Sanders, as a democratic socialist, has that anchor tied to him by a capricious media and an idiot public too stupid to open a book. Trump, on the other hand, is still ahead. So how to deal with him? Killing him appears to be their answer, and that is not meant any other way than literal. It came out today that escaped drug lord, El Chapo, has put a $100 million bounty on his head for his racist attitudes toward Mexicans. This is a serious concern as this guy has the network to possibility make this happen. What happens if Trump does get assassinated by some chump working for the drug lord? How does that affect all of us? And is it because of his stance on the TPP? Could the powers that be be looking for anyway to stop this guy before he gets into office where they will have zero control over him?
The TPP is beyond dangerous and a rare few are making any waves about it. Expect to hear more about this at the next few debates, something both Trump, Sanders, and even Rand Paul could use as a cudgel against their opponents who support it. Next Tuesday could be interesting.
