A Majority of Americans Born Before 1974 are to Blame for Our Bad Trade Agreements

In 1992, I was forty years old. I worked day and night got Rich Gephart in the Democratic Primaries for President. He was 100% against NAFTA, Bill Clinton was for it. I thought at the time, that these trade agreements would destroy the American Economy. I believed then, and continue to believe, "Build American, Buy American". In the general election I voted for Ross Perot. I only agreed with him on one issue, NAFTA. I thought it was that important. I wish my candidate had won the Primaries, or the General Election. Or, I wish I was wrong about NAFTA and free trade. But, alas, neither happened.


Every American 18 years old and older, voted (or could have voted) in that election. Bill Clinton didn't lie. He said exactly where he stood, for "free trade" and he supported NAFTA. Every voting age American had the opportunity to stop free trade in its tracks, but we didn't.

Now, we are living with the consequences.
