After a very long time, I came across a major source of embarrassment for America. Today the issue in one of my classes was "Free Trade Agreements" between the United States and the rest of the world. Canadian free trade agreements with other nations, including Colombia and Jordan, came to be discussed as well but not as much. Trade deals are good for the parties involved. It boosts economy, create jobs and remove artificially created commercial barriers.
The fact that the Democrats in the US Congress are not for Free Trade Agreement with Colombia is a big source of international embarrassment and it is a sign of weakness. The clueless socialist defeatocrats of the US Congress led by Nanci Pelosi are bunch of selfish protectionists and it is one major source of shame for them around the world. If some people don't like America, the Democrats are exactly to blame. Canada signed a free trade deal with the Colombian government months ago and that's a source of pride for the government of PM Harper and Canadians in general. But when it comes to the Americans, I guess Dems really don't give a shit to what could happen to Colombian people or the rest of the world for that matter. It's quite shameful to hear people around the world complain that the US is being protective and not wanting to open its doors to foreign trade. And who is blocking these agreements? Not President Bush, Not Republicans. Democrats are blocking these deals every now and then because they are weak and shameful.
