The Trans Pacific Partnership is a means of transferring chunks of American governance over to the United Nations (UN) under the cover of a so-called “free trade agreement” If you have read the previous post on this deceptive trade agreement, major portions of important aspects of American sovereignty are transferred to the UN via this agreement.
If you have educated yourself about this treaty and are concerned about its provisions, below is a model cut and paste letter that you can quickly email as is or modify to your liking and send it off to your specific elected representatives. We can stay silent and do nothing or get active in this election year when elected representatives are more prone to respond, especially if they are up for re-election as in the entire House of Representatives.
To make it easy to contact your Congressional Representatives simply, follow the action steps and links below and get it done in only a few minutes.

In the Opening comments (optional) box, cut and paste this opening in:
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was signed on February 4th in New Zealand by officials from 12 governments. The 12 member nation TPP is passed off as a “trade agreement” that slashes tariffs but it also harmonizes economic policies by promoting economic integration as noted in its Preamble with Communist/Socialist economies like Vietnam and Chile. However, it actually transfers our Constitutional sovereignty over trade as defined in Article 1, Section 8 to the WTO, an agency of the UN. (Full text of the agreement may be found here: http://bit.ly/1PaFdmA)
Remove the text in the Body box and cut and paste this text in:
The first sentence in Chapter 1 reads: “The Parties, consistent with Article XXIV of GATT 1994 and Article V of GATS, hereby establish a free trade area in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.”
GATT is part of the WTO agreement which is under the authority of the United Nations and the UN Charter. This is a direct erosion and transfer of our Constitutional sovereignty.
Further along in the TPP Preamble it states that another purpose of the agreement is to:
“Establish a predictable legal and commercial framework for trade and investment through mutually advantageous rules;”
Why would a trade agreement have any bearing on the legal structure of any participating nation through a legal framework for trade and investment through mutually advantageous rules?
The rules place the U.S. as a signing nation under the WTO and the UN. This amounts to nothing more than a globalist scheme designed to undermine U.S. Constitutional sovereignty hidden behind the label of a trade agreement. A so-called trade agreement that is 30 chapters long because of all of the other areas this “trade agreement” addresses.
Additionally, the TPP Preamble states that it will:
“set legislative and regulatory priorities, safeguard public welfare, and protect legitimate public welfare objectives, such as public health, safety, the environment, the conservation of living or non-living exhaustible natural resources, the integrity and stability of the financial system and public morals.”
Promote welfare objectives and public health, public morals, the environment and the stability of the financial system? This is little more than the framework of governance under the authority of the WTO and subject to the United Nations Charter NOT the U.S. Constitution.
Globalist corporations which already have representatives working with the TPP/TTIP are Goldman Sachs, Boeing, Dow Chemical, Unilever, Chevron, Caterpillar, UPS, Walmart, Chase, Citi — and a bevy of Big Business coalitions: Global Business Dialogue, Business Roundtable, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Transatlantic Policy Network, Atlantic Council, and more.
These are “crony capitalists,” not free enterprise capitalists who are using the power of government rather than innovation, risk, and excellence to prosper.
Cut and Paste this text in the Closing comments (optional) box:
This agreement clearly disables any sovereignty we have over our trade in addition to the aforementioned erosions of U.S. national sovereignty. It also gives advantages to globalist corporations like the aforementioned and promotes “crony capitalism”.
As a member of Congress who has taken an oath of office to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution, I strongly urge you to vote Nay on the TPP to preserve U.S. sovereignty rather than trade it over to the UN through the WTO under GATT.
