GOVERNOR: Free trade deal stinks

An open letter to Governor Little. This is in response to your letter of Oct. 29, 2019, in which you quite admirably bash socialism as well as the 9th Circuit Court and their support of the LGBTQ agenda. You then ask for money to support Idaho’s conservative Republicans.

The problem is that Idaho’s Conservative Republicans support the misnamed free-trade agenda which includes support for socialism and the LGBTQ agenda. The LGBTQ agenda is included in chapter 23 of the USMCA (U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement). You should be reminded also that Idaho’s Republican delegation in Washington, D.C., voted to repeal COOL (Country of Origin Labeling) which gave consumers the right to choose from which country their beef and pork comes from. This caused thousands of farmers and ranchers to go out of business. COOL clashed with their Free Trade Agreement so it had to go.

If you want more money for Idaho’s Republicans, ask them to keep their oath of office and vote against all sovereignty-destroying trade deals, including the USMCA, as well as to support COOL. Withdrawing your own support of the USMCA would be helpful also. The USMCA is without a doubt the worst trade deal ever proposed. Go online and read it for yourself. Thanks for your letter.

January 09, 2020 at 6:00 am | Bonners Ferry Herald I used to dread going shopping. Seriously. I’m not a “shopper.” I’ve never been the type of person who relished the experience of slowly wafting through aisles, perusing every available trinket to s...
