Obamatrade undermines the critical checks and balances and freedoms established by the U.S. Constitution, which reserves many rights to the people or state governments.
Obama’s agreement would obligate the federal government to force U.S. states to conform state laws to 1000 pages of rules, regulations and constraints unrelated to trade – from land use to whether foreign firms operating in a state can be required to meet the same laws as domestic firms.
The U.S. federal government would be required to use all possible means – including law suits, and cutting off federal funds for states – to force states to comply with Obamatrade rules. Says who? Already a foreign tribunal related to the World Trade Organization has issued a ruling explicitly stating that such tactics must be employed against U.S. states or the U.S. would face sanctions until state laws were brought into compliance.
