Senate Bill 744, Death By a Thousand Cuts…First There Was NAFTA, Then CAFTA and America Got the SHAFTA
July 29, 2013
It wasn’t until 1913, that this country ever was subjected to the communist inspired practice of paying an income tax. From 1789-1913, the United States raised the bulk of its revenue through tariffs on foreign products being sold inside the United States. This practice, although resulting in slightly higher prices for products, protected American jobs and stabilized American cities because there was a consistent revenue stream resulting from the fact that there would be steady employment thanks to tariffs.

With the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913, the globalists were clearly positioning themselves to eventually get rid of tariffs in order that they might be able to find cheap labor in foreign markets and undercut the wages being paid to American workers.
In the 1990′s, after intense lobbying by the multinational corporations, NAFTA was passed. If the average American worker would’ve been paying attention, NAFTA could have been stopped in its tracks. However we know how well Americans don’t pay attention to anything that requires critical thinking.
NAFTA has had devastating consequences for American farmers, American workers, Mexican farmers, and Mexican workers. Almost immediately, NAFTA bankrupted over 3 million Mexican farmers. Should we be surprised that this triggered a mass immigration into the United States?
Most aware people understand that the free trade agreements, NAFTA, CAFTA and the looming TransPacific and the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), are about letting businesses relocate major manufacturing plants in countries that permit near slave labor conditions with very few environmental restrictions and then the corporations can ship their products back into the United States without paying tariffs.
