Cafta Passes the House...217-215

With the margin so thin... and only two abstaining votes.

Cunningham lines up with his buddy Tom Delay and votes to pass CAFTA and give us all the SHAFT-A.

This is one of those votes that could have been avoided had we elected Busby.

One less coporate Congressman could have saved us from the declining dollar, lower wages for workers, and globilzation.

We need to look at what the WTO and IMF are. They are large chartered organizations for nations to apply trade policies - NOT civil liberties, NOT democractic practices, NOT workers rights. They are an organization based on how to shape the market and conduct trade. This has no protections for our rights and freedoms. It is a amalgamation of coporate communities.

President Bush claims it will spread Democracy... just like in Iraq? No thanks!

  • My father was an old school Republican, and use to have a bumper sticker that read: "Buy American" and the tagline "the job you save could be your own." I have no doubt that if he were still around he wouldn't approve of what his party has become.

    Once all of America's industries have left for China, India, and now Central America, we're all going to end up working at Walmart. Yipee!
