    As you say, Ron Paul is against all "free trade agreements", but he his in favor of free trade, as part of a free market.

    This is because the "free tade agreements" aren't really free of gov't interference.  Some are more than 1000+ pages and they have all kinds of corporate protectionism.  E.G. the "Australian Free Trade agreement" prevents the import of lower-cost prescription drugs.

    Also, they're unconstitutional, because they're done using Trade Promotion Authority which allows the President to craft the agreements, but the Constitution states that only Congress can regulate trade.
