I have a question.. If America and Mexico become one country, then doesnt that mean that their military generals and commanders will merge with ours? If I remember correctly isnt their military corrupt as hell? If we merge then all that countries corruption will be mixed in to ours. There will be no limits to all their drug movements, I see that as a bad idea We have a huge problem with drugs coming out of mexico, with no boarders that huge problem will become an epidemic.

And I also have one of these Stations/Barracks/Whatever... 'in my backyard,' as it were, which is directly across the street from a prison facility...
May have posted that elsewhere, but worth noting in this case. And then...
Consider this David Rockefeller quote from his own book in 2002: "Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."

The only North American model parliament
25 to 30 May 2008 in the Montreal City Hall
Shape North America’s future!
The North American Forum on Integration (NAFI) is inviting you to the fourth edition of the Triumvirate which will take place in the Montreal City Hall, from the 25th to the 30th of May 2008. The Triumvirate will bring together for five days a hundred university students, from Canada, Mexico and the United States, to participate in an international negotiation exercise in which they will simulate a parliamentary meeting between North American political actors. Participants will be assigned one of the three following roles: legislator (representing a country other than their own), journalist or lobbyist. Four themes of a political, economic and environmental nature will be the object of intense debates during this innovative and formative event. This year's themes are: 1- Fostering Renewable Electricity Markets (in English), 2- Countering North American corporate outsourcing (in French), 3- Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (in English), 4- NAFTA’s Chapter 11 on investments (in English).
WHO ARE WE?
The North American Forum on Integration (NAFI) is a non-profit organization based in Montreal. NAFI, created in 2002, aims to address the issues raised by North American integration as well as identify new ideas and strategies to reinforce the North American region.
Over the first two years of its existence, NAFI organized conferences which brought together government and academic figures as well as business people. The first conference organized by NAFI, entitled “Beyond Free Trade: Strengthening North America” was held in Montreal in March 2003. This conference was attended by 280 people, as well as prominent conference speakers. The second NAFI conference took place in April 2004 in Monterrey (Mexico) and focused on North American energy resources, as well as the creation of a North American energy fund. About 200 participants and conference speakers took part in the conference, among which the former Energy Minister, Mr. Felipe Calderon.
In the following years, NAFI organized an annual North American mock parliament, called the Triumvirate. This innovative event allows a hundred Canadian, American and Mexican university students to better understand the North American dynamic as well as the challenges faced by NAFTA partners. A first edition took place in the Canadian Senate in May 2005, under the presidency of ex-Ambassador Mr. Raymond Chrétien. The second edition took place in the Mexican Senate in May 2006, under the invitation of its president, Senator Enrique Jackson. In May 2007, the Triumvirate will take place in Washington D.C., in the Inter-American Development Bank and American University. A hundred students from fifteen North American universities will participate as legislators, lobbyists and journalists.
On a general basis, the objectives of NAFI are:
* Making the academic world, the public and decision-makers aware of the challenges posed by integration between the three NAFTA countries;
* Identifying the elements of the North American agenda which would allow the consolidation and reinforcement of the North American region;
* Favouring the creation of North American networks to set the basis for a trilateral dialogue.
