"free-trade"....in practice it has meant getting ripped off with bad deals. How is it free-trade when a country like China taxes imports from the US at a much higher rate than the US taxes China? SMH

Free trade implies that both sides drop import tariffs. If only one side is doing this, it's not really free trade.

"I'm a sceptic but based on what I know I would sign the TPP", that's quite different from supporting it. Isn't the big problem of the TPP the fact that we don't know what it says? Misleading title.
