The debate regarding the North American Union, can't include me unless it covers some very specific points.
1 - What is 'wrong' with the Constitutional Republic as it now stands? The form and function of the government is already a "union" of states.
Why would we want to ditch this and adopt a different set of masters? The national entity that is the United States is a sovereign state - with
self-determinism at it's core. We are responsible for the laws, and the law specifically mandates that the government cannot dole out these rights.
They are self evident and not free to barter in the name of governance, or political expediency.
2 - Will we subject the nation to a completely foreign set of commercial and corporate interests without any recourse or right to redress? Currently
that is the state of the EU, and soon the SAU will find that their laws and privileges will be 'regulated' by an unelected body of representatives.
Are we to walk into this relationship with Canada and Mexico and simply forgo any notion of state's rights?
3 - Who is the leadership of this union? Who is the executive body that will determine policy? Will they accept responsibility for their actions and
the outcome of their enterprises? Will the citizens retain the right to sue for redress?
As of this moment, I am of the opinion that the NAU (and all the other Unions) are a pseudonym for corporate governance. Its about a commercially
driven enterprise to control wealth and power by those who have already achieved wealth and power. The plan serves the corporate citizenry. There is
no real protection from abuse by the leadership - who will relax public safety controls for the benefit of profiteering interests. It will restrict
liability for those wantonly exploiting people and or the environment.
But worst of all it will forever define a narrow class of 'elite' leadership which will be sourced through an already established cadre of loosely
affiliated cabals of intelligencia elite. We will then clearly be a nation of employee/consumers - having to rely on the government for access to
every thing we need to survive and achieve the 'pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness.'
When corporations run the world, everything is for sale and the only way you can get what you want is to go through them. Your money comes from them,
your purchases come from them, as long as you offer profit to them, you have value.
How they have attempted to make this come to pass is as telling as the reality of what they want. Secrecy, disinformation, back-room deals, and no
input from us. Sorry, no sale.
