united north america.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
i forgot to link this awhile back, but here is one of many where they talk about a a united america, canada, mexico. In truth this started well before george bush.

from the first paragraph
"The global elite, through the direct operations of President George Bush and his Administration, are creating a North American Union that will combine Canada, Mexico and the U.S. into a superstate called the North American Union (NAU). The NAU is roughly patterned after the European Union (EU). There is no political or economic mandate for creating the NAU, and unofficial polls of a cross-section of Americans indicate that they are overwhelmingly against this end-run around national sovereignty."

I don't think there is a need for it right now.

The only thing I could see beneficial about this are the border states that often interchange CAN change with US change (it happens here in Detroit area). So if we gained a universal dollar for the 3 countries, then the border states could see the benefit.

However, I really don't see the need. I can see why the EU became the EU since you could drive 4 hours and be in another country. Here, if you drive 4 hours you're still in the same state (for most of us).

This is a VERY bad idea.

Oh sure. LET'S integrate Mexico's poverty, crime and institutionalized corruption with the US and Canada's relatively stable democracies and economies

Please no!!! I like Canada being "above" the States - a complete separate identify. The US is a melting pot of cultures whereas Canada is a mosaic - I don't want to melt!

I'm opposed to melting, too. I have nothing against Americans (or Mexicans), but I like being a Canadian and wouldn't want to give that up. Plus, I like our brightly-coloured money.

I like our politics a lot better too. It's almost boring compared to the US but boring can be good.

True. And I like the fact that our politician join in to help make fun of themselves (have you seen the Rick Mercer Report).

Yes, we love Rick Mercer. I've always believed it to be a good thing if we are able to laugh at ourselves at times. (I know I'm a constant source of amusement for my husband and sometimes I look in the mirror and can see why. )

Americans tend to feel that Canada is "just like us" but Canadians would never go for it, as far as I can tell. Don't know about Mexico but it sounds like a bad idea all around.

You are right about that! I have nothing against Americans at all - I just don't want to be one because I'm Canadian. With America's power I feel Canada and Mexico would be swallowed up and our heritage and everything that we hold dear would be lost forever into the "melting pot".

You've hit the nail on the head. Some of my favourite people are Americans, but that doesn't make me want to jump into the melting pot.

I find it funny that many people who refer to America as a melting pot (and like that it is) disagree with the idea of a national language.

I realize, being from Canada, you probably don't care if the national language of America were cat speak, I just find it interesting the way the "outside" world sees us.

But, if things continue the way they do here in the grand 'ole US, we won't be considered a melting pot much longer.

While I want America to continue to be a "melting pot" I don't want the rest of North America or for sure the rest of the world to be homogenized into the same mold. I like the idea of being able to go somewhere else and enjoy a different culture.
