This documents a correspondence with Congressman Steve Pierce a Republican Representative from New Mexico. In my previous correspondence, I urged him to vote NO on the TPP because it would cost jobs, help profits of transnational corporations and give unfettered immigration rights to the U.S. by 3rd world countries. This TPP Treaty has been sculpted together by literally a 1,000 lobbyists. Yet, we in America and in Congress are not allowed to know what it says! This is not democracy. It is tyranny by the few over the many.
REPLY LETTER to CONGRESSMAN PIERCE
Thanks for the reasoned reply. However, I note again that the TPP countries not only will have tariffs removed and thus make us non competitive with products form Malysia, Peru, Vietnam where we cannot meet their wage levels but it will allow FREE UNFETTERED IMMIGRATION from those countries. Indonesia and Malaysia are Moslem nations. Are we encouraging Moslem integration into New Mexico, a strongly Catholic and Christian culture? Also, when passed, you in Congress will not get a vote as to changing anything. A more intelligent approach would be to have bi-lateral agreements between nations so that differences can be ironed out. President Obama has demonstrated multiple times that his interests may or may not correspond to the best interests of the nation and specifically New Mexico. The TPP is only in the best interest of Transnational firms that operate in those countries, not in the best interest of New Mexicans. We will lose jobs.
Frankly, I trust you to make the right decision for New Mexico but not Mr. Obama. When the new vote comes up, please be vocal and stick to the best interests of New Mexico not necessarily the Republican Party.
