    OH no! Of course you are right, because the ONLY people who can give an opinion about it are the elected officials. You should be concerned about who you have given your voice to...

    You're continuing to really stretch the interpretation of what I'm saying. I will waste no opportunity to point out the extreme rhetoric you will hear from union presidents almost all the time, and so I think it does people a disservice to get their information concerning trade agreements from union leaders. 'Labor' and unions are not the same. Union leaders don't even speak for all of their own membership (given very few have ever been allowed to actually vote for the representation), let alone 'labor' generally, much less the overall economic interests of their home country.

Trump's protectionist jabber mixed with the Clinton brand's dingy record on free trade agreements (and Clinton's stated support of TPP) were what won the election for Trump. NAFTA provides a stage on which to undermine Trump.

    What the U.S. should do is flip this back in Canada's face and tell them that if they're unhappy about what an economic disadvantage they've created for themselves by letting unions run the show, that Canada should embrace Right To Work protections for workers.
    Canada gets high marks from the conservative heritage foundation. Regionally, Canada ranks number one - the United States comes in third after chile.

    Well, that may be the end of NAFTA, then, as there will be no way that all 50 states surrender to the Unions......
