Logic dictates that in order for us to survive in a global economy; we have to sell our goods to other countries as opposed to just ourselves.
not logical to isolate ourselves. It is logical to have the upper hand
against China, who is not even close to being an ally.
POTUS has, for

same class he came from. It is not logical that he would support
anything that would harm American Workers, but in fact, help them, which
is why the Trans-Pacific Partnership is his fix of all earlier trade
agreements, so that the United States has the upper hand in negotiations
with other nations with regard to trade, to insure that they are
following OUR rules as opposed to circumventing them, such as how many
other countries exploit their workers or how they destroy the
environment, for example.

always been doing, looking out for the working class of THIS country.
It is unconscionable that extremists on the right and the left argue

dick Nixon had fast track trade authority. This smacks of racism and
unwarranted suspicion of a man who not only is extremely intelligent,
but has OUR best interests at hand. I am a terminally ill retired
person, so trade doesn't mean shit to me, but my president and LOGIC
Stop the bullshit, please. Trade is inevitable, and I'd rather have Obama negotiate it than a GOP, whose aim is to outsource jobs and hoard every dime for themselves, robbed from all of us.
