No. 665



A few days ago I was talking with a friend, a retired board chairman of one of our largest banks, and I asked him if he knew anything about the North American Union. He said no, and I suspect this is the case with the vast majority of citizens of our country. To be honest, I did not know anything about it either until a very thoughtful reader sent me some information a few weeks ago. After reading the information, I went to the Internet and checked out this topic, along with a number of others that are inter-connected and related, such as the proposed North American currency called the Amero, the North American Free Trade Agreement Superhighway System and the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.
The latter was launched in March 2005 as a trilateral effort to increase security and enhance prosperity among the United States, Canada and Mexico through greater cooperation and information sharing. This document was signed by President Bush, then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin and then-Mexican President Vicente Fox. Now this all looks benign enough until you look at the details. For example, the Amero would be a lot like the Euro, in that it would become the legal currency for members of a world region. Nearly all reports contend that it would be a mixture of the peso and both the American and Canadian dollars.
Along with the Amero would come a governing financial union, called the North American Union, which would manage the currency and possibly more. The NAFTA Superhighway System would run from deep into Mexico all the way to Canada. The only stops necessary would be just to fill up with gas or diesel or some other fuel. As I said earlier, all of this has been taking place without the full knowledge of the American people, and Congress has been in the dark, too.
The real intent of this plan is to remove the borders between our three nations and make us one big governing body, which means the United States of America would no longer be a sovereign nation, something that was certainly never intended when our forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence and drafted and ratified the United States Constitution. Unless I am mistaken, when a president of our nation is sworn into office, he places his hand on the Bible and swears to uphold this same constitution. Don’t ever trample it!!
From the very first day I started writing this column, I have been very careful to never identify with any particular political party, because my first and most important loyalty is to our great country. I just want what is right and best for the United States of America. Please don’t take what I have said as the Gospel until you check it out for yourself and then make up your own mind. All of this information is just a few clicks away, if you just type in the key words that I have mentioned and do a little reading.
If it were not only for the sovereign nation aspect of what I am saying, which I would die to defend, there is another reason why we should never remove the borders between our neighbors. Over the past several years more than 6,000 people have been killed by the Mexican drug cartel, just inside Mexico. Do you realize this is more human beings killed than all of our troops who have died in both Iraq and Afghanistan combined? And they want to remove our borders? No way, Hosea!
