North American Union Blurring Borders - SPP

In 2005, the Council on Foreign Relations published the “Building a North American Community,” a report that describes a future North American Union and ideas for how to get there.

By 2010 North America will be a single community with one “common perimeter” and no internal borders. There is also talk of redistribution of wealth — meaning, no doubt, that rich Americans should be taxed to aid Mexico in eliminating its perennial corruption and squalid living conditions.

To date, the leaders of the United States, Canada and Mexico have followed the CFR’s blueprint in establishment of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America. Our government portrays the partnership as being in the best interests of Americans. Who wouldn’t want security and prosperity? However, the connection between security and open borders doesn’t seem to exist. The majority of Americans are already prosperous by global standards.

I should point out that the final product of the partnership will not be another NAFTA. There will be free trade, not to mention free movement of people and potential terrorists between the three nations of North America. But the major problem is that the concept undermines the United States more so than any attack or war in our history. The last time that inhabitants of this land were dealt such a blow to their freedom, they founded a new nation.

The government’s attempt to sneak into a North American Union, one small step at a time, violates the nation’s core principles. The SPP is subject to neither authorization nor oversight of Congress. It is controlled by the executive branch, and enforced through regulations, rather than laws created through the proper legislative process. Basically, the United States is beginning to give up its sovereignty without the average citizen or elected representatives having a say. It’s the worst foreign policy decision since Woodrow Wilson’s laughable League of Nations.

In light of this conspiracy, the federal government’s refusal to enforce immigration laws doesn’t seem so strange. It’s the first step in opening the borders. As if the situation wasn’t bad enough, we can look forward to even greater erosion of our culture and traditions.

Habla espanol? If not, you’d better learn.
