I don’t write many political articles. It’s not that I don’t have an opinion on the matters, or feel that my opinions don’t hold weight - they do. It’s just that the topics are always so hotly filled with puerile pedagoguery that I refuse to succumb.
That said, I want to talk about TPP, the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Firstly, I don’t agree with Obama on many issues. I don’t really need to go into all the ones he’s made and positions with which he’s stood, for which I disagree, but they’re often and many. Despite that, Obama’s stance on TPP and the fast-track need is the first time I’ve truly felt that he’s left his idealism behind, researched and consulted and made a very tough and bold stance.
