TPP Update

Now that the trade deal has been released for review, People like Paul Krugman have had a chance to evaluate it.

TPP is a BS issue that Sanders (and ROF ) latched onto in order to get labor's votes. Pretty much everybody on this message board have been eager to jump on the bandwagon. It's not even very important as long as we have NAFTA and CAFTA. If it were a real issue, Bernie would be calling for repealing NAFTA and CAFTA, but he never has.

Read what Paul Krugman has to say about it, now that he's actually seen it. (He doesn't even mention the jobs issue) http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/10/06/tpp-take-two/...

Krugman seems to still be concerned about ISDS issues. He needn't be. We have an 11 year history of these disputes. They are never decided for the investor against the country. The last was in 2005. There has never been one decided against the United States. (Fig. 9) http://www.ecipe.org/app/uploads/2014/12/OCC52014__1.pdf Like · Reply · 1 hr · Edited Like · Reply · 1 hr

The Founders Created the Electoral College to Prevent a Foreign-Influenced Candidate From Winning - It Didn't Stop Trump, so Let's Scrap It

Thom plus logo It's time to take another step forward in fine-tuning our republic and abolish the Electoral College.

America's Founders and Framers thought they could use the Electoral College to prevent somebody like Donald Trump from ever becoming president. Unfortunately, they were wrong, and now we're paying the price.
