NAFTA-cide? Eighteen dead found in or near a trailer at a Texas truck stop. Apparently twelve others were taken to the hospital and around twenty escaped alive. NAFTA isn't working for either Mexicans or norteamericanos, except for the very rich. We need a president who will put a stop to so-called "free trade" which allows capital to run wherever it wants but tries to keep labor locked in low-wage prisons (figuratively and literally, since cheap prison labor is being widely used in this country). We need a president who not only won't press for bad new agreements like FTAA, but will repeal the ones we already have, like NAFTA and the WTO. We need Dennis Kucinich!

As President, I will cancel NAFTA and the WTO, restore our manufacturing jobs, save our family farms, create full employment programs, create new jobs by rebuilding our cities and schools. -- Dennis Kucinich.
