Here’s a short animated video explaining why the Trans-Pacific Partnership sucks. Starring my imitation of Ross Perot!
Remember, Ross knew all about the “Giant sucking sound from the South” that became NAFTA.
I pulled concepts from both the left and the right to inform this video. My number one concern on TPP is Food Safety, which nobody is talking about yet.
Unsafe food from some Pacific Rim countries will literally kill people in the US. They will not have to follow US food safety regulations, just the food safety regulations of the shipping country. And if we don’t like it, they can sue us for refusing to accept their food under the TPP guidelines!
I hope you enjoy this educational video, please share it.
