Let's Get Real.

Smoke screen

Senator Jeff Sessions says don’t give the president the green light to “fast-track” international trade agreementsSessions listed three treaties that will override U.S. Sovereignty on a great number of issues. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), Trade in Services Agreement (TISA), and Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) remain shrouded in secret. Sessions calling this agreement a “living agreement”, meaning the commission can make the agreement say what it wants it to say and not say what it doesn’t want. Power like this in the hands of any one group of people is dangerous, it allows them to push their agenda without any recourse says Stephen Murray CCMP Capital. We also have to be careful of the governments’ way of using its smoke screen, while the country is marching and arguing over confederate flags and other less dramatic issues the government is making agreements that will affect the whole country. An international trade agreement is an important issue but, with all the distractions being pushed to the forefront, the government was allowed time and opportunity to put this agreement into place without any backlash from the people! Hence the smoke screen worked! Whether our country or another country, no one needs another dictatorship it’s too much power for one person or group of people!
