After every lie, every crime against the American people, every crime against the world. After opening Americas borders to terrorists, criminals and beggars. After allying with al-Qaida and other sworn enemies of the American people. After bankrupting the U.S. government. After impoverishing the American middle class. After making a mockery of the U.S. Constitution. And after way more that we can list here, both Georgia U.S. senators, David Perdue and Johnny Isakson, trust President Barack Obama to hand U.S. sovereignty over to a corporate world government.

That is what the Trans-Pacific Partnership is: a secret, multilateral treaty, classified by the president; an impartation of the right of self-government and self-regulation to a multinational corporate consortium surrounding the Pacific rim. When this agreement is complete, the forces behind it will attempt a similar agreement among nations surrounding the Atlantic basin, known as the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.

The battle whether to authorize this president to negotiate the TPP deal and fast-track it through both houses of Congress is complete in the U.S. Senate. The American people lost. And now the question goes to the U.S. House of Representatives.

If you love your country; if you value freedom for you, your family and the next generations; if you want your children and grandchildren to have the same opportunities that you have enjoyed, friend, it is time for you to get involved. It is time for you to act. Call your U.S. representative today and urge him to vote “no” to give this president trade promotion authority. And then call your family and friends. Tell them how important it is for them to do the same thing.

The number for the U.S. Capitol switchboard is 202-224-3121. When the person picks up, ask to speak to the office of your representative.

Do it today.

Hank Sullivan
President, Lanier Tea Party Patriots, Cumming
