 and i urge everyone to oppose the free trade agreement in total and in
individual aspects, as it serves americans not australians. the americans
stand to gain an estimated $2.6 billion (aust) whereas australia will gain
$1.4 billion (aust) which will blow our trade deficit which is already $6
billion (aust). then they want to limit our freedom even further (than it
already is) by changing our laws on competition
policy,communications,intellectual property and deregulation of almost all

governments dont give freedom, they only take and restrict freedom,
revolutions give freedom . we can only maintain the level of freedom we have
by opposing those who would take it. or by revolting
