    America’s record at the W.T.O. is not good:

    America’s Losing WTO Track Record

    America’s Losing WTO Track Record | Economy In Crisis

    Even America’s W.T.O. victories produce few, or no, benefits when it comes time to enforcing a W.T.O. ruling. Making the W.T.O. a United Nations agency is the only way it could get worse for Americans.

    Hussein is filing another case for political reasons:


    U.S. to File W.T.O. Case Against China Over Cars

    Hussein motives are less than pure; so I don’t know why rank & file union members would think going to the W.T.O is in their best interests? In fact, Hussein is more concerned with strengthening an International organization than he is concerned about American jobs or the trade imbalance.

    Surely, relying on W.T.O. decisions to protect America’s industries and jobs contributed to the massive unemployment in this country in the first place. Paper victories over China won’t change anything:


    At WTO, U.S. racks up wins against China, but the benefit is less than certain
    By Howard Schneider, Published: August 6 The Washington Post

    At WTO, U.S. racks up wins against China, but the benefit is less than certain - The Washington Post

    There is absolutely no evidence the W.T.O. creates jobs in this country.

    Bottom line: If Hussein has to go to an International organization based in Europe to bring back the American auto industry who the hell is he working for?

    Maybe the WTO is more worker-friendly than the U.S. government.

    1) a liberal will lack the IQ to understand free trade


    The Goldern Rule:the more with whom you trade the richer you get no matter if they are across the street or across the world; the fewer with whom you trade the poorer you get.



    If you could not trade at all you'd have to make everything yourself and so starve to death or live a subsistence life style. Hence, the more with whom you trade the richer you get no matter if they are across the street or across the world.

    Moreover, its exactly as Richard Nixon once said, "our goods have to be world class if we want to be a world class country". Imagine how backward our industry would be if it did not have to compete in the globalized market place? Our cars would be like soviet car were, i.e., you had to use a dip stick to check how much gasoline you had and back them up hill because carburetors were gravity fed. This is what the liberals, in effect, propose because they lack the ability to understand free trade.

    To Freemason9: Not to American workers.

    International organizations like the W.T.O. and the UN were created by elitists for their own benefit. Their political posture is quite obvious: Capitalism for themselves and socialism for everybody else. Their sole economic goal is equally obvious: Equal distribution of poverty. Winston Churchill said it this way:


    Incidentally, I’m not the only one who is skeptical of the W.T.O.

    What a tangled anti American web Barry weaves. He's so proud of the GM bailouts, but so embarrassed about the bank bailouts, and apparently very shy about the recent take over of the health care industry.

    In the end it's all a huge step toward anti American socialism but not surprising from a president who had 2 communist parents and voted to the left of Bernie Sanders.
