insight on the brexit argument wanting democracy like the US.
( while Obama and Hilary argue that we should have a trade agreement like the EU in the US and pass the TPP)

Brexit - It's a democratic argument, similar to Trump's arguments against TPP that would give other countries overriding rule over the US.

You misunderstood my intent I agree. I know it is a duopoly deal - it is called subversion of the US constitution by foreign unelected corporate bureaucrats - sponsored by yours truly, our US govt. under the guise and harmless name of "free trade".
