US doesn't come out ahead on free trade agreements

To the Editor:

In response to the Wisconsin State Journal editorial published in the Daily Globe on Feb. 21, regarding “Europe should drop cheesy demand.”

It is not about mozzarella cheese curds, it is about socialistic globalization and one world government. It is about the U.S. giving away our hard-earned independence.

The U.S. never comes out ahead on any of these free trade agreements. In my opinion, the two Bushes, Clinton and now Obama have done their best to give America away.

Wake up, America. The sacrifices of many who fought for our freedoms have done so in vain. Wake up and realize how, little by little, our freedoms are being taken away. Wake up America; we are losing our once great nation.

Wake up, America, for these are very frightening times.
