          In all fairness to Agent maybe he meant the opposite of destroy, which could be create, and Trump’s foreign policies and incompetence are likely to do that. Maybe he’s not as stupid as we thought, just evil.

      Hi FFA, yes, there is a new Sheriff in town. Trade deals in the future will be “fair”, not one sided as it has been for years which favored every other country than the US. If you want to sell your product in the US, buy American goods as well.

    I, too, stand in opposition to the TPP. I agree it is wrong for America. I am in full agreement with Thom Hartmann on this one.

      We do find common ground from time to time. I assume that you support the Border tax too?

        Yes, we never should have gotten rid of tariffs in the first place.

      I agree too. Have not listened to Hartmann in ages but some of his books are great, especially Last Hours Of Ancient Sunlight. I do like Majority Report.

    If we don’t pass it; can we still find out what’s in those secret codicils?

    So the U.S. ‘writing the rules of the road’ involves a deal so sketchy that it has to be kept secret for four years from the American public after its implementation? It would seem that, in this case, secrecy is not being used for national security but rather to prevent the voting public from knowing what is contained within that agreement. Why would anyone need to be kept in the dark unless it is something that would seriously undermine sovereignty in favor of multi-national corporate interests? If it’s going to piss the voters off, don’t tell them about it until it’s too late to do anything.

    The TPP was designed to grant the major Corporations control of the area and ultimately the world. If it is finally accepted it could result in the worst revolutions in history. It is designed to recreate slavery in the countries stupid enough to be involved. The politicians who accepted it in the first stage did not know what the real implications were, but considered that it would make them richer.

      Are you talking about major foreign corporations controlling trade. Our corporations have a lot of trouble exporting our product to many countries. I tell you what, if an American corporation wants to build their products in a foreign country, they will be subject to a heavy tariff to bring them back in. Trump is right about this and we have already seen many corporations changing their mind and deciding to invest in America and create some American jobs.

    Sounds like people from all walks are against the TPP. I hope the controlling powers are listening to us.

    You down with TPP? No way, not me!

    There are a significant number of American companies who export vast amounts of goods to China and Japan. Ending the TPP would adversely affect these companies, affecting millions of jobs, tax revenues and shares of stocks. On the other side many companies rely on foreign parts to maintain their supply chain. Risks are breaks in supplies, leading to loss of production, job loss, stock market losses, increases in manufacturing costs and prices of goods. For those who are not fully informed, there are unintentional negative affects of what is being presented as a seemingly simple solution. We should take our time to be informed and make decisions that benefit our country without hurting it first.

      There was a time years ago when parts were made in the US in the now rust belt. Time to get the parts made here again. Employers will appreciate it. More quality control as well.

        You are right, and Reaganism is responsible for those jobs being lost.

          You were doing so well, and then just pooped your pants with that unsubstantiated Reagan remark.

    Great! More deals like that should be killed including Obama’s surrender of the middle east to Iran’s terrorist Mullahs. Good riddance to a deal that could not survive the light of day. Let the radical left complain as much as they want. Frankly, the louder they scream the more certain we can all be that we were being lied to and cheated, again.
