“It is our clear policy to steer clear of permanent alliance with any portion of the foreign world.” — George Washington
Since America abandoned the sound advice of our Founding Fathers concerning alliances with foreign nations, we have become more and more involved in international organizations and agreements. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has been one of these disasters, which are falsely styled “free trade agreements.”
While many people—including President Trump—recognize that NAFTA has been a “bad deal” for America, the focus has mainly been on the least important aspects of the failure of NAFTA.
Most discussion has centered around the undesirable economic ramifications of NAFTA—how it’s harmed our economy and caused unemployment. The real dangers that NAFTA—and similar entangling alliances—pose to the freedom and sovereignty of our Constitutional Republic are rarely talked about.
Don’t let them make you think it’s all about bringing back jobs, increasing economic prosperity, establishing fair trade, and renegotiating a “better” deal. The far more important issues at hand are the long-term dangers to American liberty and sovereignty.
Another question asked far too little is whether America should even be involved in negotiating “trade” agreements with other countries in the first place. For one thing, American involvement in international organizations is unconstitutional. Nowhere in the Constitution is there authority given to any branch of the federal government to enter into and subject America to international governing bodies.
Continued involvement in NAFTA—even a renegotiated NAFTA—will result in further erosion of national sovereignty, more globalism, and even more destructive “trade agreements.”
The European Union—a disastrous, socialist international trade bloc—was built by agreements similar to NAFTA. One agreement, pact, and partnership at a time, the same globalists who engineered the EU’s gradual advance from economic integration to complete political integration also plan to destroy America’s sovereignty by the same gradual process. They want a North American Union.
In order to reach world government, which is the ultimate aim of both internationalists and globalists, they must feed globalism to us a little bit at a time. They know we’d never swallow the whole bottle of poison at once. Like the unfortunate frog in the gradually-heated boiling pot, we’re having globalism spoon-fed to us one trade agreement at a time.
If they are allowed to continue, someday we’ll find ourselves completely subservient to an EU-style supranational government. And once they fully entangle every part of the world—and especially America—into these regional unions, it will be an easy step to merge them into one New World Order.
Britain voted to get out of the EU over a year ago. They still are fighting to get out, and will have to keep on fighting if they are going to successfully throw off the chains of international bureaucracy in Brussels and regain their national sovereignty.
Let’s get out of NAFTA and other international outfits such as NATO and the United Nations, before we become trapped in the predicament of Europe’s once free and independent nations.
NAFTA is a bad deal not just because of “jobs,” but because it’s a major stepping stone to subjecting America to a supranational government.
