So true. We are a mockery and the world knows it. Our laws not being enforced show we are certainly not one of the most powerful of nations, at least that is message we are sending to the world.

I am beginning to see change, strong leaders opposing PC and doing the right thing. It's catching on

Their is nothing politically correct about a system of trade that harms not only persons in Mexico and Canada (by extension of CAFTA all of Central America) but also U.S. citizens. The current use of food products based on coe=rn can be directly linked to the increase in obeisity. Mexicans who are driven off their local farms have few alternatives to making what amounts to a death defying journey through the desert to seek employment here. Canadian farmers have also suffered. So it seems the most logical and selfish response so that all may benefit would be therepeal of NAFTA (and CAFTA) and the implementation of sustainable agriculture practices for all. Noone wakes up one day and decides they would rather cross into another country at great personal risk, take any job with substandard working conditions while paying into an economic system which openly despises them. We would all rather live in dignity and support our families. So quite simply, any of us who chooses to become well informed must conclude that NAFTA is not the sole problem for our current problems but it contributes a lion's share both directly and indirectly.
