The piece (at the link) below is from Bill Moyers and the publisher of Harper's, John R. MacArthur. It's almost two years old, so it gives insight into the fact that the Dem Party higher-ups promoted the Corporatists and marginalized the Populists regarding this current election.
Once Madam Pres gets elected, she'll again change her mind about the TPP & be in favor of it...more jobs will evaporate, & more factories will move overseas (most likely to Malaysia and Vietnam). Count on it. Low-paying service jobs and part-time and/or temp. positions here will expand.
"Free Trade" Agreements are not primarily about Trade; instead, they're about investments and proprietary agreements. They enable the hollowing out of the Middle Class in our country. They overwhelmingly benefit the Oligarchy, not Main Street. They evaporate American manufacturing and jobs. Clinton, Obama, Schumer, McConnell, McCain, and many other Corporatist national politicians promote and support them.
This all reminds me of Ross Perot & Al Gore discussing NAFTA---Perot was right on the mark ("All you'll hear is the loud sucking sound of jobs rushing to Mexico..."), and Gore was dead wrong ("NAFTA will create more jobs here"). As predicted by Perot, one million jobs were lost here because of NAFTA. The TPP will be much worse.
Trump (for other reasons) AND Clinton = disaster for the Lower & Middle Classes in this country. Boycott the election, or vote for a worthy alternative candidate.
Not only my opinion. Be Well
