A North American United Nations?
August 28,  2006

Globalists and one-world promoters never seem to tire of coming up with ways to 
undermine the sovereignty of the United States. The most recent attempt comes in
the form of the misnamed "Security and Prosperity Partnership Of North America 
(SPP)." In reality, this new "partnership" will likely make us far less secure 
and certainly less prosperous.

According to the US government website dedicated to the project, the SPP is 
neither a treaty nor a formal agreement. Rather, it is a "dialogue" launched by 
the heads of state of Canada, Mexico, and the United States at a summit in Waco,
Texas in March, 2005.

What is a "dialogue"? We don't know. What we do know, however, is that 
Congressional oversight of what might be one of the most significant 
developments in recent history is non-existent. Congress has had no role at all 
in a "dialogue" that many see as a plan for a North American union.

According to the SPP website, this "dialogue" will create new supra-national 
organizations to "coordinate" border security, health policy, economic and trade
policy, and energy policy between the governments of Mexico, Canada, and the 
United States. As such, it is but an extension of NAFTA- and CAFTA-like 
agreements that have far less to do with the free movement of goods and services
than they do with government coordination and management of international trade.

Critics of NAFTA and CAFTA warned at the time that the agreements were actually 
a move toward more government control over international trade and an eventual 
merging of North America into a border-free area. Proponents of these agreements
dismissed this as preposterous and conspiratorial. Now we see that the 
criticisms appear to be justified.

Let's examine just a couple of the many troubling statements on the SPP's US 
government website:

"We affirm our commitment to strengthen regulatory cooperation...and to have our
central regulatory agencies complete a trilateral regulatory cooperation 
framework by 2007"

Though the US administration insists that the SPP does not undermine US 
sovereignty, how else can one take statements like this? How can establishing a 
"trilateral regulatory cooperation" not undermine our national sovereignty?

The website also states SPP's goal to "[i]mprove the health of our indigenous 
people through targeted bilateral and/or trilateral activities, including in 
health promotion, health education, disease prevention, and research." Who can 
read this and not see massive foreign aid transferred from the US taxpayer to 
foreign governments and well-connected private companies?

Also alarming are SPP pledges to "work towards the identification and adoption 
of best practices relating to the registration of medicinal products." That 
sounds like the much-criticized Codex Alimentarius, which seeks to radically 
limit Americans' health freedom.

Even more troubling are reports that under this new "partnership," a massive 
highway is being planned to stretch from Canada into Mexico, through the state 
of Texas. This is likely to cost the US taxpayer untold billions of dollars, 
will require eminent domain takings on an almost unimaginable scale, and will 
make the US more vulnerable to those who seek to enter our country to do us 

This all adds up to not only more and bigger government, but to the 
establishment of an unelected mega-government. As the SPP website itself admits,
"The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America represents a broad and
ambitious agenda." I hope my colleagues in Congress and American citizens will 
join me in opposing any "broad and ambitious" effort to undermine the security 
and sovereignty of the United States.
