    Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Governor John Kasich destroyed hundreds of thousands of jobs in his home state by supporting the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), Donald Trump told supporters.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Republican Party establishment backs Kasich in Ohio and Senator Marco Rubio in his home state of Florida in the hope they can win the delegates in the Tuesday primaries to slow Trump’s drive towards the Republican nomination. However, Trump leads Rubio in Florida by large margins according to polls.

    “[Kasich] signed NAFTA when he was a congressman,” Trump said in a speech at Youngstown Airport in Ohio on Monday night. “Now he wants to sign TPP. That is worse is going to be worse for Ohio. The car business is going to be destroyed by TPP but he wants it.”

    Polls show Kasich either leading Trump or being tied with him in a dead heat in Ohio, where the winner of the primary wins all its delegates to the Republican National Convention to be held in the same state in July.

    “Go out. You’ve got to beat got to beat Kasich. Your governor is absentee… He's weak on the borders,” Trump told a crowd thousands of cheering supporters.

      Too many things have gone wrong in the United States lately,
      and there is way too much anger out there, for fake positives.

      TPP & the other Global Corporate treaties/'arrangements'; Suing the Global Corporate Economy
      TPP & the other Global Corporate treaties/'arrangements'; Suing the Global Corporate Economy via ‘your’ government.
      Japan; ‘The Submission’ to The Supreme Court of Canada paves the way for Expanding & Improving the basis of the Yamada led ‘Sword & Shield’ Counter attack Suit against the Japanese gov’t, et al.
      TPP & otherGlobal Corporate Treaties/’Arrangements’ signatory gov’ts. in Conflict of Interest.

      TPP, et al, Just in Time to protect carcinogenic ‘Round Up’ & other Toxic products & Foods; the Future starts NOW. Taxes Cut as Gov’ts pass Lawsuit Costs to harmless citizens?

      (CAN.) – The TPP & the other global corporate treaties/’arrangements’ provides that the signatory governments will no longer be able to sue corporations for not adhering to the laws of their host countries & thereby, replace the desire of American led corporations for tort reform with tort abolishment, but, the TPP will also place the signatory governments in positions of a conflict of interest in regard to their own harmless citizens who are being forced to find their own, non-governmental means of enforcing existing & future laws that have been passed by way of:

      1) the secrecy of unethical lobbyists for the benefits of their wealthy corporation clients & their shareholders,
      2) the ethical desire to compete with other countries by passing laws that protect & enhance the well-being of its citizens regarding their health care, education, worker safety, environment, transfer payments, etc.

      However, it seems that it is only recently that the harmless citizens of Japan & other nations are learning that due to Corporate Canada’s, &/or, the government of Canada’s anxious desire to impress its TPP corporate associates, &/or, the citizens of Japan, et al, with:

      1) its unencumbered access to the natural resources that are continuing to be discovered in Canada,
      2) its ability to ‘manage’ Native Canadians in regard to accessing the aforementioned natural resources in Canada
      3) et al,
      Corporate Canada, &/or, the Canadian government has misinformed its corporate associates & deprived its corporate associates of due diligence information (eg. the Canadian government,et al, is continuing to deprive Native Canadians, et al, of the information & questions in The W.A.D. Accord), which will greatly affect the costs of developing the aforementioned natural resources, and thus, as a consequence of Corporate Canada’s, &/or, the Canadian government’s actions it has given the harmless citizens of Japan, et al, the basis for:

      1) not only, suing Corporate Canada, &/or, the government of Canada, via the Canadian government,
      but, for :
      2) also expanding & improving upon Mr. Yamada’s existing suit against the Japanese government, &/or, Corporate Japan, et al, as well.

      And, thus, Corporate Canada, via their lobbyists to the Canadian government, are most anxious to escape from their liabilities by a rapid ratification of the TPP, et al.

      Therefore, the Japanese group, led by Mr. Masahiko Yamada, who are suing their government regarding the Trans-Pacific Partnership on behalf of themselves & the citizens of Japan, might seriously consider suing Corporate Canada, in order to ensure that they, the harmless citizens, do not end up having to ‘contribute’ any of their tax dollars to pay for The Compensation in The W.A.D. Accord, et al, & thereby, prevent
      Corporate Canada from escaping its liabilities by way of the ratification of the TPP, et al.

      Furthermore, by suing Corporate Canada &/or, the government of Canada, by Mr. Yamada’s group, would enable the harmless citizens of Japan as a ‘sword’ & a ‘shield’ to prevent the government of Japan from using any of tax dollars of the harmless citizens of Japan to further punish the harmless citizens, ie. the ‘shield’ & to provide the monies necessary from the punitive damages, on an on-going basis, to continue to fight the future capricious forays & assaults against the harmless citizens’ democracy and counteract the damages to it, etc. caused by Corporate Japan, the government of Japan, et al, ie. the ‘sword’...

      Trump is correct. Ohio and many parts of the American Midwest are formerly industrial areas which are now very poor. Their manufacturing base is no longer, jobs are scarce and real estate is extremely inexpensive. It is no different from a third world country.
