As a former member of the military for a long period of my life, it pains me to write this. The truth is that as an American, it is my duty to inform the people of my country. In fact, at this present time, the government is meeting with some of the nations of Asia to perfect and implement the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that will basically destroy much of our sovereignty. The Administration is trying to "fast-track" this bill by presenting the bill to Congress and demanding an up or down vote even though the TPP was written in secret and most of our vacant-minded Congress have not even read it. The treaty was exposed by Wikileaks, and I advise all Americans to read it.
" Negotiated just as the worldwide democracy uprising threatens to reign in corporate interests, the agreement will limit governments' ability to write banking regulations, energy policy, food safety standards and even government purchasing decisions. It will allow corporations and investors to sue governments for lost profits if the governments try to make and enforce environmental, labor and other laws. " (Dave Johnson, Campaign for America's Future)
The question is this: When will my fellow Americans wake up and smell the deceit and corruption of Congress, The President and the Supreme Court? We all have a stake in these issues. There is so much more I could write about and I will, but I tried to stay on the military in this article. There will be another. We are all in an precarious situation and I feel that we all should be aware of what is happening as well as what is at stake. I thank you for reading this.
