From hard experience, Americans have also caught on that "free trade agreements" are nothing but vehicles for moving their jobs abroad. The latest effort by the corporations to loot and defraud the public is known as the "Trans-Pacific Partnership." "Fast-tracking" the bill allowed the corporations to write the bill in secret without congressional input. Some research shows that 90% of Americans will suffer income losses under TPP, while wealth becomes even more concentrated at the top.

TPP affects every aspect of our lives -- from what we eat to the Internet to the environment. According to Kevin Zeese in Alternet, "the leak of the [TPP] Intellectual Property Chapter revealed that it created a path to patent everything imaginable, including plants and animals, to turn everything into a commodity for profit."

The secretly drafted TPP also creates authority for the executive branch to change existing US law to make the laws that were not passed in secret compatible with the secretly written trade bill. Buy American requirements and any attempt to curtail jobs offshoring would become illegal "restraints on trade."....

This is the last piece of the plan before the NWO takes effect (and think how many fools pooh-poohed that idea...along with that other foolish notion, 9/11!) It will effectively remove the Constitution, allow any law to be ignored but mainly allow the last president of the United States to make legal whatever he or she wishes..with the blessing of the Supreme Court and the joke formerly known as The U.S. Congress.

In Asimov's Foundation Series, Salvor Hardin (basically) says that when a situation occurs, you keep eliminating side paths until there's only one course left. We are nearly there now. There will soon be only one course left to head off this bullsit from politico/corporate America (and the world). And as he said, that should be painfully obvious...even to the ignorant fools who followed these traitors.

Unfortunately, that seems to be the case. If enough people were to wake up, peaceful revolution would be possible. But that would take almost everyone, and far too many cling to willful ignorance, false concepts of self-interest, and fear-based conformity.

The corporate mass media is a very effective tool of cultural programming, and many can't see the extent of our complicity with actions that violate the public interest, as well as the very viability of the planet.

But when the breaking point happens, no force on earth, including the massive military-security state, will be able to stop it. No matter what "they" would like us to believe.

As you pointed out, the options keep narrowing.
