Free trade does not simply include cars, appliances, electronics and other durable goods. It also includes food. And the seeds have been planted to lure farmers into this trap through a massive trade bill known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

Most Republicans favor this pact, although they know little about it in terms of the big picture. They just hear the promises of greener pastures of prosperity from big business, the Commerce Department and the U.S. Trade Representative office.

The problem is, TTIP negotiations, like those for the more expansive Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), are highly confidential.

TTIP, if snuck past the populace on both sides of “the pond” and signed into law, would become the first-ever formal trade and investment pact between the U.S. and the 28-nation European Union (EU).

As this reporter has revealed, the Delegation of the European Union to the United States has been in high gear for months wooing state governors, academics and members of Congress. The lobbying group has a Washington office not far from where the European Union’s “taproot”—the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC)—set up an office back in the early 1950s.
