Real free trade (and NAFTA is not free trade) produces a win-win for both parties to a transaction. After all, both parties are free to exchange, and free to reject the exchange. If exchange is chosen, it necessarily means that both parties are better off trading than not.
When government gets involved with trade, by wielding force, the transaction becomes win-lose instead of win-win. Someone is being forced against his or her will somewhere. Someone benefits from the use of force, and someone else suffers.
The loser may be one of the parties to the transaction (think Obamacare), or the losers may be hapless taxpayers, who have nothing to do with the transaction, but end up footing the bill for something.
Whoever the loser happens to be, the key takeaway is that government force is always a bad thing.
Donald Trump called NAFTA "the worst trade deal in history." It's definitely up there, and many of his voters were hoping that the "anti-establishment" Trump would take this New World Order trade deal (that has zero to do with actual free trade) off our backs.
In 1993, Henry Kissinger wrote in the L.A. Times concerning NAFTA: “What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system...a first step toward a new world order.”
NAFTA surrenders America's national sovereignty to faceless and unelected international bureaucrats.
Unfortunately, as with Obamacare, Trump has let Americans down by by refusing to rid us of "the worst trade deal in history." To say that Trump will "re-negotiate" the trade deal means almost nothing.
The New World Order structure stays in place, American sovereignty will still be given away, and a future U.S. President can just "re-negotiate" things right back to the way that globalists want it.
"Re-negotiation" means that faceless international bureaucrats continue to run the show.
As Gary North points out:
As long as the bureaucrats remain in control of policy, which is forever unless NAFTA is abandoned by the US government, they don't care if Trump gets this or that point renegotiated. Enforcement will always be in the hands of the bureaucrats, and the bureaucrats ignore the politicians except on rare occasions. The politicians are not in charge. The bureaucrats are in charge. That's why NAFTA is a disaster. It is going to remain a disaster.
President Trump .... America needs free trade.
We don't need re-negotiated government force. We don't need any force at all!
We need freedom.
Get out of NAFTA.
