Over this period, Pat Buchanan writes, 5 to 6 million manufacturing jobs were lost in the U.S. As Pat notes, we need not look further than job-killing NAFTA, GATT, and MFN for China, all championed by Bill and Hill, the GOP establishment, and the globalization crowd at the WSJ.
Now we are staring at the prospect of an Obama trade deal known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The globalizers at the WSJ, who quite wrongly are attacking Pat Buchanan (among the few journalists in America who is on the right side of most major issues), are again championing this trade travesty.
Through the years, Pat’s agenda has been clearly presented in his excellent series of books (See Suicide of a Superpower and The Death of the West). As Pat notes, “Our agenda in that decade (2000-2010) was—stay out of wars that are not our business, economic patriotism, secure the borders, and America first.”
