We observe that the populist movement against the so-called "free trade" agenda of the transnational corporate elite transcends partisan politics; and whatever else you say about Pat Buchanan, he will be the only candidate in the 2000 presidential sweepstakes who will passionately and unconditionally defend the legitimate expectations of working families in the global economy.

-- over the damage to the fundamentals of governance and sovereignty wrought
by the NAFTA and the GATT/WTO.
