Subject: I voted for Clinton
and lost my job because of it
There are many of us who have lost their jobs
because of voting for the
better candidate as did the writer who voted
for Obama. I, and many
others, can say the same with what happened with
I remain a huge Clinton fan and have gone to see
him in person when he
was campaigning for Hillary, but still I cannot
understand why the 180
degree turn on NAFTA. There are probably more
than a million of us out of
work because our jobs went to Canada and Mexico.
The effect on our
economy that this had from parts suppliers all
the way down to the corner
bars that thrived on the workers who frequented
their establishments was
huge. Hurting Americans and killing their jobs
seems like a treasonous act.
One need not be an economics major to see what
would, and eventually did
happen to the American workforce. My co-workers
and I certainly understood
that it was death for the American way of life
and middle class. It was a republican
fantasy to kill all those union jobs. So WHY
would a Demmie work to enact a
George H W Bush plan to screw American workers
- his base?

I've yet to find anyone who could explain NAFTA.
When I ask, people send me links to 10,000-word
essays and I don't have the time.
I assume Clinton gave his reasons for backing
And how did this cause the loss of jobs?
Clinton created 24M jobs, and you're saying that number would be higher
if he hadn't gotten behind NAFTA?
