where would we be without the republicans?
Clinton signed NAFTA but it was not his idea. NAFTA was proposed, negotiated, and signed by GHW Bush before Clinton was president. Since Bush signed NAFTA, as President, it had to be sent to Congress to be ratified. Clinton said he would veto NAFTA if the worker protection and environmental amendments were not added. "Following diplomatic negotiations dating back to 1986 among the three nations, the leaders met in San Antonio, Texas, on December 17, 1992, to sign NAFTA. U.S. President George H. W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas, each responsible for spearheading and promoting the agreement, ceremonially signed it. The agreement then needed to be ratified by each nation's legislative or parliamentary branch." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_Free_Trade_Agreement Here is a picture of Bush signing NAFTA. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_H._W._Bush#NAFTA Besides, about 90% of the crap in Wal Mart comes from China and not Mexico or Canada. Nixon was the first US President to visit Communist China in 1972. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Nixon#China Gerald Ford sent GHW Bush to Communist China to teach them how to be capitalists and to start negotiating the China trade deals. "Ford selected George H.W. Bush as Chief of the US Liaison Office to the People's Republic of China in 1974, and then Director of the Central Intelligence Agency in late 1975. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_Ford#Administration_and_cabinet Reagan and his VP, GHW Bush started the trade agreements with China. "US-China Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT) JCCT. The US-China Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT) was established in 1983 as a forum for high-level dialogue on bilateral trade issues and a vehicle for promoting commercial relations. The JCCT works to resolve problems affecting US companies and serves as an umbrella for trade events and World Trade Organization (WTO) technical assistance programs. The JCCT is co-chaired by US Secretary of Commerce and China=s Minister of Commerce and enjoys strong interagency support on both sides. The Commission consists of three working groups covering trade and investment issues, business development and industrial cooperation, and commercial law, as well as a side dialogue on export controls. Cabinet-level plenary sessions typically are held annually, while sub-cabinet sessions and subgroup meetings are more frequent and ongoing. The Department of Commerce (DOC) consults closely with US industry prior to each session to ensure that companies= most pressing concerns are addressed. Companies are encouraged to express their concerns to relevant DOC JCCT contacts." http://www.mac.doc.gov/china/JCCTforweb.htm It was the dam repukes who are responsible for the trade agreements and sending our factories and jobs overseas.

Free trade is a good thing. So is Title IX, signed as an (entirely constitutional, like all executive orders) executive order by Nixon. So are freed slaves, if you want to go back a way. Lincoln was a Republican. There are PLENTY of examples of good things done by Republicans and stupid things done by Democrats... More
