Introduction to the “Free Trade” Issue

What is CAFTA?


Introduction to the “Free Trade” Issue

Kevin Craig supports Free Trade, and therefore opposes all the Free Trade Agreements that are being imposed on America. These agreements include GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, FTAA, and SPP. If you’re confused why someone who supports Free Trade would oppose a Free Trade Agreement, you’ve come to the right website.

Free Trade

The “Free Trade” that Kevin Craig supports is trade which is voluntary, uncoerced, untaxed, and unobstructed. If two people want to buy and sell, they should be free to do so.

To create a situation of free trade, one needs to abolish all laws, regulations, and tariffs which obstruct, impede, or penalize voluntary trade.

“Free Trade” Agreements

Agreements like GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, FTAA, and SPP may abolish some obstructions or financial penalties against some trading, but they do not really create Free Trade, and in fact do far more damage by setting up new regulatory agencies, courts, and government systems.

In fact, as hard as it may be to believe this, the “Free Trade” Agreements listed above have as their underlying purpose the abolition of the United States and the creation of an entirely new government system. It’s “Independence Day” all over again, but in entirely the opposite and wrong direction.

What is CAFTA?

As the Majority Whip, Roy Blunt was instrumental in securing passage of CAFTA, The Central American Free Trade Agreement. CAFTA is an expansion of NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement) to five Central American nations (Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua ), and the Dominican Republic, and promotes the agenda of the SPP. It passed through the U.S. House of Representatives by one vote in the middle of the night on July 27, 2005. All sides agree it would have failed without the energy and dedication of Congressman Roy Blunt.

What is the agenda behind CAFTA?

If the only agenda were “free trade,” Congress would simply abolish all laws which restrict trade. NAFTA, CAFTA, and now the SPP, do much more than simply relax regulations against trade. These agreements create new governmental systems: new courts, new law-making bodies, and new executive agencies: all three branches of government created by the Constitution are replaced by these new government systems. Courts under NAFTA are empowered to overturn U.S. laws and overrule decisions of U.S. Courts.

The agenda is, in fact, to create a new regional government over North America, Latin America, and eventually the entire Western Hemisphere. This is a very serious issue, and you can learn more about the latest developments here:
