"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at lastand the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron." --H.L. Mencken, the Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920
"The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite." -- Thomas Jefferson
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
-- Thomas Jefferson /Letter to the Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin (1802)
"A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever." --John Adams in a Letter to Abigail Adams (July 7, 1775)

For too long, the United States and the world have been saddled with awful trade agreements that enrich corporate elites at the expense of good-paying jobs, labor rights, highway safety, consumer protections, affordable medicine, and a clean environment.
The corporations behind NAFTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) want to rewrite NAFTA to add in the worst of the TPP — raking in billions for themselves with disastrous consequences for the majority of people both at home and abroad.
Without massive public opposition, Americans, as well as people in Mexico and Canada, will remain explicitly barred from knowing what is being proposed in our names. All while corporate lobbyists get to cozy up to negotiators, telling them what to include in trade negotiations and what to leave out.
Trade agreements are too far-reaching to allow them to be written in a process that shuts out the public. With a new national debate on trade policy finally taking root, it’s time to speak out. Please take action now.
