Bill demanding that plans for a North American Union be abandoned goes to House
Los Angeles, CA (Sept. 25, 2007) -- A House resolution urging President Bush “not to go forward with the North American Union or the NAFTA Superhighway system” is – according to its sponsor Rep. Virgil Goode, R-Va. – “also a message to both the executive branch and the legislative branch.” It’s a message that’s long overdue, says Dr. Jerome Corsi, author of the NY Times bestseller “The Late Great U.S.A: The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada” (WND Books, ISBNs 0-9790451-4-2, $25.95, July 2007).
Says Corsi, "On January 22 of this year, Rep. Goode introduced H.C.R. 40, which is titled ’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.’ This is a bill that all Americans who are concerned about their future, and that
of their children, must demand be passed" The bill has been referred to the House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
Rep. Goode is all too aware that just last month, George W. Bush ridiculed the concept of the kind of merger between the United States, Mexico and Canada that is predicted in “The Late Great U.S.A.” Ironically, Bush did so at a meeting designed to further the so-called “Security and Prosperity Partnership,” which Dr. Corsi calls the precursor to a full-out EU-like North American Union.
Rep. Goode agrees with Corsi’s assessment. “I think that saying we’re ’conspiracy theorists’ or something like that is really just a play on words with the intent to demonize the opposition.”
Asserts Rep. Goode, “The president is really engaging in a play on words. The secretary of transportation came before our subcommittee,” he explained, “and I had the opportunity to ask her some questions about the NAFTA Superhighway. Of course, she answered, ’There’s no NAFTA Superhighway.’ But then Mary Peters proceeded to discuss the road system that would come up from Mexico and go through the United States up into Canada.”
How about Bush’s push to let Mexican trucks have free rein throughout the United States without any kind of safety or cargo inspections? Says author Jerome Corsi, “That’s in essence creating a NAFTA Superhighway system. To say otherwise is semantics, flat-out dishonesty, or treason, and there are plenty of examples of each in ’The Late Great U.S.A.’”
Rep. Goode is also aware that the issue could mean disaster for Republicans in the next election, because the Bush administration supports both a NAU regional government and a NAFTA Superhighway system, something that members of Congress, if forced into an up-or-down vote, would defeat overwhelmingly. Yet thanks to Bush’s insistence on secrecy and incrementalism, the concept continues to move forward by stealth, which is just the way the president wants it.
That’s why Jerome Corsi urges all concerned Americans to contact their representatives and demand that H.R. 40 be passed by an overwhelming majority. “As I show in ”The Late Great U.S.A: The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada,“ George W. Bush is pushing such a merger through without congressional debate or consent. It’s time for members of Congress to stand up, as Rep. Virgil Goode has, and say ’enough!’ We as citizens must take back our country’s future -- if it is to have one as a free, sovereign and independent nation.”
