Here's what Free Trade has done to this town, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6AmJCpc93g

Now here's how Free Trades keeps being promoted, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfE2HO8p3FE

Here's who brings you that enlightening video, http://atlasnetwork.org/

What a crock of horseshit. Is this what the politicians believe or what. Free Trade has shipped untold millions of jobs out of this country, eliminated jobs dependent on those and no way are they coming back so why does the government keep doing it. Are they corrupt or stupid ?

"...so why does the government keep doing it. Are they corrupt or stupid ?"

Stupid? Not really. Corrupt? Absolutely. Who does Free Trade benefit? Big business. Who lobbies for Free Trade? US Chamber of Commerce.

Some interesting reading:
