Nay! The governing document of the United States of America, the Constitution is only 4,000 words long. Thanks in large measure to Chief Justice John Marshall (1801/1835), the Constitution has, all too often, been twisted and shaped like wax (see Jefferson) into any form the supreme court wished.
The TPP agreement comprises 30 full sized page chapters. The Cato institute produces a back pocket booklet including the Declaration of Independence, an excellent Preface by Cato’s director for it’s Center for Constitutional Studies Roger Pilon, and the Constitution. The section on the Constitution alone covers but 30 PAGES!
What can any logical American imagine will be the fate of a 5,500 page, 30-chapter managed agreement?
