  1. Yes, this is a shocking development, all the more so because so few people know about it. And part of why so few people know about it is that it is secret. A few legislators were allowed to see it but were then under oath not to discuss its contents with anyone. Talk about cutting the voters out of the picture! and talk about taking away sovereign rights, with the ability of the tribunals to make decisions that supersede local ordinances democratically arrived at. This trade deal is a big step into oligarchy (not that we haven’t strayed hugely in that direction already). We are in deep trouble if it passes.
