Bush, Borders and Globalization

Jerome Corsi has written an article for Human Events called "The Plan to Replace the Dollar With the 'Amero'". It is suggesting that George Bush is working to create a new political entity, almost a new country really, consisting of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. Some excerpts:

...Following the March 2005 meeting in Waco, Tex., the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) published in May 2005 a task force report titled “Building a North American Community.” We have already documented that this CFR task force report calls for a plan to create by 2010 a redefinition of boundaries such that the primary immigration control will be around the three countries of the North American Union, not between the three countries. We have argued that a likely reason President Bush has not secured our border with Mexico is that the administration is pushing for the establishment of the North American Union.

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, 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: ...

...Pastor’s 2001 book “Toward a North American Community” called for the creation of a North American Union that would perfect the defects Pastor believes limit 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...

(bold emphasis mine) I don't doubt that there could be numerous benefits in combining forces with our north and south neighbors... but to what extent? It's the loss of American Sovereignty that I find most disturbing. Also the loss of American identity, and the values that go with it.

It's often been said that when big corporations merge, the corporate identity of BOTH corporations is destroyed; a new identity emerges. Sometimes the identity of one company, the stronger one, retains a dominant influence, but is still changed, often dramatically.

I doubt that merging three countries, even in a limited way, would be very different. But with Canada's socialism and European political views, and Mexico's socialism, poverty and political turmoil, you have to wonder what that would do to our culture, identity and sovereignty. Add to that the American leftists, socialists and communists already in our country, and you have to wonder just how much the influence of OUR political ideals and culture would prevail, or even endure? America has always grown and changed throughout it's history; change is inevitable. But where would this plan take us? There are a lot of questions worth asking.

It makes for an interesting read. The article is filled with links to sources and references, it has a wealth of information. You can read the whole thing HERE. Hat tip to TammyBruce.com. Tammy had Jerome Corsi as a guest on her radio show to discuss the article.
