This whole TPP monstrosity, if it passes, will be the death knell for what remains of our tattered constitution. The incredible arrogance and outright treason this "trade agreement" represents is the culmination of 40 years of corporate rule via the WTO: first they created trade tribunals where companies could sue nations for loss of "expected profits" when nations decide whatever pillaging the corporation wanted to do was against the interests of the nation. These tribunals could only be used in very narrow circumstances, but they opened the door. Now with the TPP, and its transatlantic counterpart "TAFTA", they are trying to fling the door wide open so that corporations can totally dominate nation-states, all under the false banner of "free trade". We already have free trade with these nations -- tariffs are incredibly low or nonexistent (which is a terrible thing given the way it helps destroy entire industries via wage and environmental arbitrage). So these are not trade agreements, but sovereignty destroyers.
And there is Obama, at the head of the charge for the US government to give up its power to the global corporations that will shower him with money once his second term is over. We used to joke that W was a corporate PR flack masquerading as president. What does that make Obama, who has already created a nationwide captive customer base for the health "insurance" industry to pillage and plunder? Now he proposes to give up OUR sovereignty to the tender ministrations of the neoliberal international corporate cartels. Something tells me Obama doesn't lose any sleep worrying about average Americans. After all, he has presided over the largest transfers of wealth from the people to the banks and multinationals in the history of the world in his two terms in office, shielding criminal banksters from the law at every turn, and protecting BP for its criminal acts that destroyed the Gulf of Mexico. What more fitting final act for his abomination of a presidency than to deliver the TPP to his corporate cronies and masters? Too bad its getting leaked and people are starting to wake up.
