The "New Partnership in North America": double-plus NAFTA

On March 23 the leaders of the U.S., Mexico, and Canada will meet at Baylor University and at Bush's ranch:

The meeting is to discuss the New Partnership in North America plan which aims to increase security, prosperity and quality of life for the people of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico...

[Vicente] Fox is expected to make an aggressive pitch at the meeting for a so-called NAFTA-plus - a large-scale integration of North America far beyond what exists in the current free-trade agreement. Canada and the U.S. are both cool to the idea...

Quebec Premier Jean Charest called Thursday for closer economic and trade ties among Canada, Mexico and the United States, saying the three North American countries should take the European Union as an example of closer integration...

Now, make sure you're sitting down before reading November 15, 2004's "Meet NAFTA on steroids":

North American national borders would be virtually eliminated under plans being considered by senior business and political leaders from Canada, the United States and Mexico for a "NAFTA-plus," continent-wide, customs-free zone with a common approach to trade, energy, immigration, law enforcement and security.

A tri-national task force, chaired by former Liberal Party deputy prime minister John Manley, with the full backing of all three governments, is plotting the roadmap for this new, bolder alliance meant to compete with the European Union. William Weld, former governor of Massachusetts and Pedro Aspe, former Mexican finance minister, join Manley on the panel that reports directly to the Council on Foreign Relations...

The "NAFTA-plus" plan has also been referred to as "deep integration." Skeptics see it as a plan to eliminate national sovereignty and erode the American concept of representative government accountable to the people under the framework of the Constitution...

Other names mentioned: Tom Ridge, "Canadian Finance Minister Michael Wilson and Nelson Cunningham of Henry Kissinger's consulting firm, Kissinger McLarty Associates."

Whoops, make that "hopelessly corrupt" not "hopefully corrupt".

North American national borders would be virtually eliminated...

They already have been. Any terrorist who can't get across the Mexican or Canadian border is too incompetent to do any damage anyway.

Mutual security with these countries is not a very promising idea. Mexico is hopefully corrupt, and Canada is run by moonbats who won't even cooperate with our plans for missile defense.

Rather than erasing our borders, we ought to start defending them.

eh

I've always dismissed the 'one world government' conspiracy stuff as just that.

In the same way I've been reluctant to sign on to calling immigration enthusiasts 'the treason lobby' etc.

But lately I've begun to reconsider...
