Alan Keyes on Free Trade
Republican challenger for IL Senate; previously Candidate for President
FORBES: If the WTO canít get its act together, let it stay on the side & we take direct action in reducing trade barriers with our partners starting with the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement, with Ireland & Britain. And we should do the same thing with Australia & other countries in the Pacific Rim. That way we can stop this discrimination against our products and the WTO can go its own way.
KEYES: [The WTO] violates the constitutional principle of no legislation without representation. Will you withdraw us from this unrepresentative body?
FORBES. Iím not going to withdraw us from that body. itís supposed to be there to help reduce barriers. If it doesnít, then we bid it goodbye.
BAUER: I donít like bureaucrats-they are out of the reach of the people. I donít like HMO bureaucrats; I donít like Washington bureaucrats that are trying to run the schools. And I donít like WTO bureaucrats either. I think that when decisions are made that affect the way we live, that affect our jobs, those decisions ought to be made by people that we can reach, so if we donít like what theyíve decided, we can get rid of them. And I believe that in the case of the WTO, itís a system out of control.
