What will happen to the sovereignty of the United States? The model is the European Community. While the United States would supposedly remain as a country, many of our nation-state prerogatives would ultimately be superseded by the authority of a North American court and parliamentary body, just as the U.S. dollar would have to be surrendered for the “Amero,” the envisioned surviving currency of the North American Union.
Again, the CFR report says nothing about reporting to Congress or to the American people. What we have underway here with the SPP could arguably be termed a bureaucratic coup d’etat. If that is not the intent, then President Bush should rein in the bureaucracy until the American people have been fully informed of the true nature of our government’s desire to create a North American Union. Otherwise, the North American Union will become a reality in 2010 as planned. Right now, the only check or balance being exercised is arguably Congressional oversight of the executive bureaucracy, even though Congress itself might not fully appreciate what is happening.

Well, if you read the Hal Turner website
I was accused of lying. I was accused of having "photoshopped" the images by creating them in Adobe Photoshop.
Within a couple days, a basic web site for AMERO "FANTASY COINS" was erected on the internet and word of that site was spread quickly. The site contained the same images as I had run on my front page,

I will be more concerned when we start seeing the paper money. The obvious reason is that coins are useless for major transactions. They are for show or for partial dollars only. The main reason is their weight. Grab a few breifcases of your 1,000 Amero's and go buy a car, Nobody wants to carry the coins. These are for show only.

In the future of the NAU, i would think "currency" as we know it would be obsolete anyway. I would think money transactions of the near-future would be completely card-based. We are already being shown using paper and coin currency is "outdated" with those visa commercials.

I don't get it, it's a fact that they are trying to create a North American Union, and it's a fact that the Amero is making progress.
Why are there some that refuse to believe this?

Perhaps posting proven fantasy coins, and claiming their the real deal is what turns people off?
That did it for me.
How can you have a serious discussion about it when the first post is perpetuating a proven fraud?
I may be wrong, but as far as I remember, when the EU presented the future currency they presented first the details, then they said that each country would have a coin design of its own but the notes would be common, and then they presented the designs.

Secondly, if coins come out obviously paper would later on
why would they make coins if they're not going to make paper afterwards?
I mean come on, I didn't know about the fantasy coins thing.
That doesn't mean the entire NAU is superstition.
