CAFTA Should Be Rejected Just Like The EU Constitution

by Phyllis Schlafly

The EU constitution was defeated because Western Europeans don’t want to be politically or economically or socially integrated with the culture, economy, lifestyle, or history of Eastern Europe and Muslim countries. Western Europeans recognized in the proposed EU constitution a loss of national identity and freedom to a foreign bureaucracy, plus a redistribution of wealth from richer countries to poorer countries.

Will the political and business elites in America hear this message and stop trying to force CAFTA (Central America Free Trade Agreement) on America?

The Senate Republican Policy Committee appears to be tone deaf. Its just-released policy paper argues that CAFTA should be approved because its purpose is “integrating more closely with 34 hemispheric neighbors — thus furthering the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA)” which the 2001 Quebec Declaration declared would bring about “hemispheric integration.”

CAFTA may serve the economic interests of the globalists and the multinational corporations, but it makes no sense historically, constitutionally, or democratically. Americans will never sing God Bless the Western Hemisphere instead of God Bless America.
