Bill To Stop North American Union Not A Important Issue To Democrat Controlled House

By Michael Difensore

Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) (pictured left) introduced a Bill on Jan 22, 2007 to stop plans of a Nafta Super Highway and North American Union. I was happy to see Ron Paul was a cosponsor. I was happy and shocked to see Ralph Regula (R-Oh) also was a cosponsor. Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama say they are not for Nafta. A Democratic congress however lets a bill sit around that stops the formation of a North American Union. This Democratic congress is a do nothing Congress that has not Represented the people since it took office. The people wanted the Iraq War to end. Congress did nothing. The majority of Republicans are no better. Why is Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama not pushing this Bill? After all they both just said recently they are against Nafta. If you believe that I have a Bridge to sell you. They are for a North American Union just like most of Congress. Wake up to the traitors in our government before its to late.

110th CONGRESS
1st Session
H. CON. RES. 40

Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should not engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

January 22, 2007

Mr. GOODE (for himself, Mr. WAMP, Mr. JONES of North Carolina, Mr. PAUL, Mr. STEARNS, Mr. DUNCAN, and Ms. FOXX) submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and in addition to the Committee on Foreign Affairs, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned


CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should not engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada.

Whereas the United States Departments of State, Commerce, and Homeland Security participated in the formation of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) on March 23, 2005, representing a tri-lateral agreement between the United States, Canada, and Mexico designed, among other things, to facilitate common regulatory schemes between these countries;

Whereas reports issued by the SPP indicate that it has implemented regulatory changes among the three countries that circumvent United States trade, transportation, homeland security, and border security functions and that the SPP will continue to do so in the future;

Whereas the actions taken by the SPP to coordinate border security by eliminating obstacles to migration between Mexico and the United States actually makes the United States-Mexico border less secure because Mexico is the primary source country of illegal immigrants into the United States;

Whereas according to the Department of Commerce, United States trade deficits with Mexico and Canada have significantly increased since the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA);

Whereas the economic and physical security of the United States is impaired by the potential loss of control of its borders attendant to the full operation of NAFTA and the SPP;

Whereas the regulatory and border security changes implemented and proposed by the SPP violate and threaten United States sovereignty;

Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System from the west coast of Mexico through the United States and into Canada has been suggested as part of a North American Union to facilitate trade between the SPP countries;

Whereas the State of Texas has already begun planning of the Trans-Texas Corridor, a major multi-modal transportation project beginning at the United States-Mexico border, which would serve as an initial section of a NAFTA Superhighway System;

Whereas it could be particularly difficult for Americans to collect insurance from Mexican companies which employ Mexican drivers involved in accidents in the United States, which would likely increase the insurance rates for American drivers;

Whereas future unrestricted foreign trucking into the United States can pose a safety hazard due to inadequate maintenance and inspection, and can act collaterally as a conduit for the entry into the United States of illegal drugs, illegal human smuggling, and terrorist activities; and

Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System would likely include funds from foreign consortiums and be controlled by foreign management, which threatens the sovereignty of the United States: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That--

      (1) the United States should not engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System;

      (2) the United States should not allow the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) to implement further regulations that would create a North American Union with Mexico and Canada; and

      (3) the President of the United States should indicate strong opposition to these acts or any other proposals that threaten the sovereignty of the United States.

I have just inserted a "breaking news" post at FireSociety, it isn't published by them yet, maybe you can see it anyway.

NORTH AMERICAN MODEL PARLIAMENT
at Montreal City Hall, Canada
25-30 May 2008

FOLKS! Why not rent a bus! Bring a picnic, come see your new Parliament in action! This is what your government will be like after the new North American Parliament of Robert Pastor replaces your Congress.

Need cheap place to stay in Montreal? Try this page:
http://montrealrentals.tripod.com/alouermontreal/id19.html

SCROLL down that page, past the "chambres" (rooms) to rent, and there's a section with the following :

Auberge Alternative (Eng)
Auberge Chez Jean (Eng)
Auberge de jeunesse Maeva Montréal (F)
Hébergements Montréal (F)
HI Auberge de Jeunesse (Eng)
Hostel Montréal (Gîtes) (F)
La Maison du Patriote - dortoir (Eng)
PSE Accommodation (Eng)
SaisoLoc.com (F)
Vacances Canada M.D. Youth Hostel (Eng)

I've made note of the pages that are available in English. Look for an English link on French pages, to take you to their English site.

The least formal of the lot appears to be CHEZ JEAN (in English, that would mean "John's Place") at $20 cash a night, with picture ID required. The $20 is for a mattress on the floor of a converted old row house; and includes coffee and a breakfast (serve yourself) of cereal and toast. I've used it myself, it's cheap, it's fine.

My fave is the Auberge Alternative -- quite nice, an old industrial loft in Old Montreal converted to dormitories with gigantic wooden bunks, high ceilings, and lots of atmosphere. Bring EARPLUGS to sleep at night. The big dormitory starts at $18 per person for a bunk, plus a one-time sheet-rental fee of a couple of bucks. Other accommodations are available at higher prices. Coffee is free all day. Breakfast is $4.00 Canadian funds (self-serve) and includes cereal, fruit, bread, buns, cheese, toast, it's pretty nice. Also nice is the free wifi, just bring your laptop. Oh yeah, $5 deposit for the key.

I also warmly invite you to read my updated GROUNDS page (linked below) from Habeas Corpus Canada, which explains how the 1980 Referendum for Quebec to secede, and the 1995 Referendum for Quebec to Secede were in fact attempts to impose on Canada (i.e., on North America) the Treaty of Rome which set up the European Economic Community, which then morphed into the European Union, and is now morphing into the European Soviet Union:

Come, one and all, see beautiful Montreal! Great opportunity to sight-see. If you plan to picket, you may have to ask permission of the Police.

But overall, you'll really enjoy Montreal. Picket at the END of your stay, so you don't spend all of it in jail. Get to sight-see first!

Nice city, mostly nice people, that is, of course, except for those nasty One-Worlders at the Montreal City Hall (in French that's "Hotel de Ville") who are planning to take my country and yours away from us by 2010.

Cheers ! Kathleen Moore, Canada
