Will The USA Get Swallowed Up In A North American Union?

According to a column by Jerome R. Corsi originally published in Human Events Online and reproduced on the Jeff Rense website, the leaders of the USA, Canada, and Mexico have committed their nations towards a North American Union similar in scope and concept to the European Union. This is in accordance with a Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) report entitled "Building A North American Community", produced by them after a March 2005 summit between Bush, Fox, and Paul Martin. However, the CFR is a very controversial organization; I would urge you to view a WorldNetDaily article dated June 2005 to find out its true agenda.

At their meeting in Waco, Texas at the end of March 2005, U.S. President George W. Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin committed their governments to a path of cooperation and joint action. What is the plan? Simple, erase the borders. The plan is contained in a "Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP)", adopted by the three leaders in March 2005.

The SPP establishes ministerial-level working groups to address key security and economic issues facing North America and setting a short deadline for reporting progress back to their governments. President Bush described the significance of the SPP as putting forward a common commitment "to markets and democracy, freedom and trade, and mutual prosperity and security." The policy framework articulated by the three leaders is a significant commitment that will benefit from broad discussion and advice. The CFR's North American Union Task Force will provide specific advice on how the partnership can be pursued and realized.

To that end, the Task Force proposes the creation by 2010 of a North American community to enhance security, prosperity, and opportunity. They propose a community based on the principle affirmed in the March 2005 Joint Statement of the three leaders that "our security and prosperity are mutually dependent and complementary." Its boundaries will be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter within which the movement of people, products, and capital will be legal, orderly and safe. Its goal will be to guarantee a free, secure, just, and prosperous North America. This is the most likely explanation for Bush's failure so far to secure our border with Mexico.

The North American Union is envisioned to create a super-regional political authority that could override the sovereignty of the United States on immigration policy and trade issues. In his June 2005 testimony to the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Robert Pastor (pictured at left), the Director of the Center for North American Studies at American University, stated clearly the view that the North American Union would need a super-regional governance board to make sure the United States does not dominate the proposed North American Union once it is formed.
This trilateral approach will be institutionalized in a new North American Advisory Council. Unlike the sprawling and intrusive European Commission, the Commission or Council will be lean, independent, and advisory, composed of 15 distinguished individuals, 5 from each nation. Its principal purpose will be to prepare a North American agenda for leaders to consider at biannual summits and to monitor the implementation of the resulting agreements.

Pastor also proposed the creation of a Permanent Tribunal on Trade and Investment with the view that "a permanent court would permit the accumulation of precedent and lay the groundwork for North American business law." The intent is for this North American Union Tribunal would have supremacy over the U.S. Supreme Court on issues affecting the North American Union, to prevent U.S. power from "irritating" and retarding the progress of uniting Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. into a new 21st century super-regional governing body.

Robert Pastor also advises the creation of a North American Parliamentary Group to make sure the U.S. Congress does not impede progress in the envisioned North American Union . He has also called for the creation of a North American Customs and Immigration Service which would have authority over U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) within the Department of Homeland Security.

Pastor's 2001 book "Toward a North American Community" called for the creation of a North American Union that would mitigate the deficiencies limiting the progress of the European Union. Much of Pastor's thinking appears aimed at limiting the power and sovereignty of the United States as we enter this new super-regional entity. Pastor has also called for the creation of a new currency which he has coined the "Amero," a currency that is proposed to replace the U.S. dollar, the Canadian dollar, and the Mexican peso.

Analysis: This is a prescription for the death of the American republic. Any decision made by our Supreme Court, Congress, or the President could be overruled by this North American Union. This is completely unacceptable. Not only should we resist the formation of this "union" politically, but if it ever becomes reality, armed resistance of any type would be morally justified, in the same spirit as Moroni in the Book of Mormon when he hoisted his title of liberty and threatened to overthrow a Nephite government which would not provide him the wherewithal to successfully defend the Nephite homelands against an all-out Lamanite invasion (sort of like the current invasion of the Southwest by many of the descendants of those Lamanites).

This plan would not only complete the transformation of the American Southwest into an "Aztlan", it would ensure much of the rest of the USA would be overrun by hordes of low-skilled Mexicans willing to work for peanuts and undercutting American workers. Through that and a few entitlements they'd be fed "bread"; through our mass media and entertainment industry, they'd be fed "circuses". Yep, bread and circuses for the masses once again. This is why the corporations favor mass immigration, and why they're enthusiastic about this plan. In other words, we would have the creation of a permanent underclass of migratory serfs and the further exaltation of the elite.

Also note that instead of a plan allowing us (and the Canadians) to maintain our standard of living while Mexico steadily rises to meet it, we would have to lower our standard of living and give up the lion's share of freedoms. America would be penalized for its strengths. This is why a North American Union is not only NOT worthy of support, but is worthy of OVERTHROW by physical force if it's ever established.
