The EU began as an economic union and quickly grew into a smothering union trying to dictate policy to all its member states. The South American states have just had enough states ratify the Union Of South American Nations (UNASUR or UNASUL) treaty, taking their first step into the New World Order.

As their first two leaders, they have chosen a pair of socialists, not a good sign for the future of this union IMO.


South American Union Selects Socialist Leaders

While U.S. President Barack Obama’s trip to Latin America hogs the media spotlight in news coverage of the region, the nations on the Southern continent made their new regional government official on March 11 as the Union Of South American Nations (UNASUR or UNASUL) treaty entered into force. Basing the supranational institution on the European Union model, further integration is still planned and already underway as two socialists were elected to lead the union.

Foreign Ministers from member nations met in Mitad del Mundo, Ecuador, to finalize the agreement, originally formed in 2008 from a merger of other regional unions including Mercosur and the Andean Community of Nations. The Uruguayan legislature ratified the agreement last month, meaning the nine countries required for the treaty to take effect had finally been found. Brazil and Paraguay have not yet approved the pact, but they are part of the arrangement nonetheless.

The bloc includes almost 400 million people and is expected to become the dominant supranational institution for the region in the years ahead. UNASUR started as a coalition of trade and customs treaties encompassing various nations on the continent brought together by Brazilian diplomats. It has since grown to include a regional military integration scheme, gradual reduction of the role of national borders, the elimination of passport and visa requirements between members states and more.

According to news reports, Patino said member nations were seeking agreements that go far beyond commerce. The end game would eventually lead to “integration,” a term frequently used by internationalists which refers to the surrender of national sovereignty to international regimes such as the European Union and UNASUR. Another topic on the agenda is the eventual creation of a continental currency along the lines of the Euro.

The New American


Everybody has been wondering what the Japan earthquake and new war in Libya are trying to conceal from the American people, this just may be it.

Anything not capitalist = evil to you, huh?

This is a step-forward, hopefully the implementation is "good" as this system should be able to help keep american imperialism at bay.

I would argue that these big economic unions exist to thwart democracy.

It is just a way to make government more distant from the voters on the street. Having a diverse "population" in the union also allows for easy "dividing and conquering" games, whereas in a more homogeneous nation, you have fewer lines down which to incite people into aggression towards one another.

Its part of the game. Keep the poor people blaming each other and pointing fingers along the lines of nationality, color, gender, religion, etc., and you can screw them as hard as you want. They will just get more and more angry at each other. Almost no one will take the time to actually LOOK and see who it is ramming them. As long as the people have an outlet for their frustration, you are good to go.

Unfortunately.

In all fairness, this has been going on for allmost two decades. In 1994 the MERCOSUR ( mercado comun del sur ) or common market of the south was instituted mainly with economic integration in mind and was succesfull in many ways, this organization still exists but has not lived up to expectation which is why i think UNASUR was created to encompass more topics including social-political areas and carrying on with unsuccesful policies from MERCOSUR, one of which is a regional currency, a coin for the whole of South America, maybe Centra America and Mexico. Regional or Global currencies allways spell globalists to me.

Actually I think capitalism is a failed system as well. To me, a Catholic monarchy with a distributist economic system would be best.

I think the US does interfere in the affairs of Sout America too much but, turning the reigon into another version of the EU is just trading one master for another. Those countries will loose their autonomy just like the European nations are under the EU.

The only good thing that comes of this is that maybe, if they become strong enough, they can take over the role of "world police" from the US and sombody else can send their sons and daughters off to die in some God-forsaken hell hole for the NWO for a change.
