Infringing on U.S. interests

A wake up call appeared in the Oct. 1 Herald (“EU delays subsidy fines: Deadline extended for U.S. to update laws, eliminate $4 billion export tax break). The WTO and the United Nations are telling our Congress that we have until Nov. 1 to bring our export laws into compliance with their dictates. The Clinton administration and our Congress are falling all over themselves to comply. Wake up folks! We’re being sold down the river by our political leaders. Since when do we allow our political leaders, whom we have elected to protect our interests, bow down to the United Nations and all of its piglets and their dictates?

I urge you to contact all of your friends and alert them as to what is going on and urge them to contact the White House and our senators and representatives today and demand that they vote against the WTO demands. This is urgent, please don’t delay. Follow through to watch what the administration and our elected representatives do in regards to the demands.
