The North American Free Trade Agreement was a package of misleading promises sold to an unsuspecting Congress by a cynical band of White House operatives and mendacious business lobbyists. It immediately failed to live up to the assurances--of more jobs and greater prosperity--made by President Bush, who negotiated it, and by President Clinton, who lobbied for its approval. So, at least, insists John R. MacArthur, author of The Selling of "Free Trade": NAFTA, Washington, and the Subversion of American Democracy. In addition, he says, NAFTA cost jobs in the U.S., held down wages in the U.S. and Mexico, and led to increased pollution along the border. :Full Story
Ahhh...see purps the information on the world wide web is it not wonderfull.
Yes, and at that point in my life I was a 3rd party member - the one that was against NAFTA.
I also never voted for G H W Bush - I voted for Dukakis (not sure what I was thinking there, in retrospect). Nor did I vote for G W Bush either time.
That doesn't mean I can't support G W Bush independant of what his father did. We're at a point in time I think it is prudent to support our President, and I can honestly say I'm in near 100% in agreement with President Bush and his policies.
It is too bad the two parties can no longer work together.
After BJ got impeached and disgraced for lying under oath the Dems just haven't been able to recover from the pain. They've sought to label Bush a liar and impeach him in some sort of deluded attempt to erase the Clinton debacle from their memories.
It's a sad thing they are willing to sell out their own country to do that, but that's the world we live in today.
Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
