The Case for the Amero...
WASHINGTON – Are secret meetings being held between the corporate and political elites of the U.S., Mexico and Canada to push North America into a European Union-style merger?
...Or rather, what can we do to stop the North American Union from happening? I was browsing WorldNetDaily today, and noticed this article. There have been alarmist, overblown reports in this publication previously, but by and far it is a reliable read which appears to rely mostly on external media. This article caught my interest because I have heard whispers here and there about the impending NAU which, quite frankly, is a terrifying concept. I am a strong believer in the capitalist system, but an equally powerful believer in this conglomeration of phrases: Money is power, power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. There have been some very benevolent CEOs, but they are becoming more and more rare. If the NAU concept were to come to fruition, the American job market would surely crash, beauracracy would reach new heights at the corporate and governmental levels, and the very sovereignty and security of the United States of America would be jeopardized.

Tom Tancredo is one of the few congressmen that appears to be supportive of American sovereignty to any degree. He has repeatedly called for border security, and has now called on the Bush Administration to reveal any plans set forth involving negotiations with the other North American states in this regard. He's quickly becoming one of my favorite Congressmen, up there with Moeller grad John Boehner.

With President Bush's post-election shift to the left, many Republican seats are up for grabs in the coming election. Let's hope sanity prevails, and a more Tancredo-like Congress emerges in the coming months. If this plan continues to sail through under the radar, The Case for the Amero will have to be considered one of the main harbingers. From that article:

The United States has less to gain from a monetary union than Canada and Mexico but there will be some benefits. Monetary union will reduce the threat to the power of the US dollar resulting from the greater use of the euro in place of the dollar in the rest of the world. Further, the United States will benefit from having more stable and prosperous countries as neighbours. When the United States joined other international organizations like the IMF, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, and the North American Free Trade Agreement, the expected economic and political gains appeared to offset the surrender of some national sovereignty. In this tradition, the United States may well find it worthwhile to join the proposed monetary union.
In other words, it's OK to sell off a little sovereignty now and then. That Phyllis Schlafly would oppose this immediatly sent up a red flag.
"Bush meant what he said, at Waco, Texas, in March 2005, when he announced his plan to convert the United States into a 'Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America' by erasing our borders with Canada and Mexico," she said. "Bush's guest-worker proposal would turn the United States into a boardinghouse for the world's poor, enable employers to import an unlimited number of 'willing workers' at foreign wage levels, and wipe out what's left of the U.S. middle class. Bush lives in a house well protected by a fence and security guards and he associates with rich people who live in gated communities. Yet, for five years, he has refused to protect the property and children of ordinary Arizona citizens from trespassers and criminals."
Whether this is incendiary rhetoric, or the absolute truth remains to be seen. The good news is it's getting out now. Stay posted for the bad news, should it come around.

I feel like a prophet Charles-you know, those of us who were opposed to NAFTA warned those who supported it (most of which at the time were Republicans) that this North American Union would be the next step.
