I had a cashiering shift yesterday at my work and this old Republican-looking couple (you'd think they're Republicans too if you saw them) was in my line. The old man made a few jokes about how he likes real money and something else. He obviously was heavily into politics because I didn't understand any of the jokes and he immediately reminded me of my Reagan loving grandfather. In any case, as he left, he handed me a little card (I'm very used to getting these from Baptists, Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, et cetera) and so I just took it and said thank you, have a good day!
Well, the card said "Stop the FTAA!" and I admit I don't know a whole lot about the FTAA but I have heard some about the FTAA and immediately this popped into my mind "Wait, I know I don't know much about this, but I thought I was against this and that old man was a Republican!" Ok, so I'm not the greatest at thinking on my own. Whatever. That's another thread!
So I've been researching the FTAA and there's definitely lots of stuff that I don't agree with but when I go to sign the petition on this page
there are ads on the left side that say "Get US out of the UN!" What?! I'm so confused. Getting the US out of the UN seems like such a Republican thing to do. The petition is also against illegal immigrants having jobs in the US. That seems like a Republican thing as well.
What on Earth is going on. I'm so confused.
