Not stupid at all. Heck, its a better idea than what we are operating under now. We need fair trade - plain and simple.

This can be a good thing - the more we trade with each other the less likely we are to go to war with each other.
I agree, we are there now and many strategists think this will prevent wars hence the idea of using our money to prop up and expand other peoples economies and infrastructures. To me, this is like buying friends. I've always been told that if you gotta buy a friend you are better off without them.
SRBeef":2zi3s0rv said:Another requirement of trade is that it needs to be not used as a political weapon. As soon as you use it as a weapon, folks work real fast to find a way around your product. Many examples of this.
That's the biggest problem I see with this one world mess. We as producers are the ones who will take it on the chin. Also, with super strong centralized gov't, it doesn't take but one knit-whit making a bad trade to send a whole segment of the economy into a recession.

If this is truly a politcal gambit, I'm sure they could point out many gambits our boys in DC have done as well. Its politics and unfortunately the more we go toward these trade treaties the more we as producers are going to be used as pawns in their little political games and we are the ones that will get hurt. I'll shut up now. I just wish I could produce what I produce without outside influences monkeying with my livelihood.
