Canada, the United States, and Mexico...a possible merger?

If someone would have told me last year that some of our leaders in our government and those of the powerful elite in this country were plotting to merge Canada, the United States, and Mexico, I would have brushed it aside as a conspiracy theory. Yes, it seems wild, however as we face the huge illegal immigration issue, many conservatives are now starting to put the pieces together.

Is the lax view in which our government is taking regarding illegal immigration connected to plans to merge america with Canada and Mexico? Many reasons have led me to think this is a possible scenario. We continue to deal with the illegal immigration issue, the Senate failing to listen to the american public and drastically cut down on the number of illegals entering the U.S., and deporting those who are here illegally.

The round up of illegals continue across america, and the National Guard is setting up along the U.S./Mexico border, but no bill has been signed to address our border problems. Putting in place a long term solution to deal with illegal immigration has stalled. The thinking of some in our government towards illegal immigrants has almost shelved the H.R. 4437 bill that would crack down on illegal immigration and make those who are here felons. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell weighed in on the illegal immigration issue in Mexico City recently and mentioned that any barriers that will be erected along the U.S./Mexico border should include gates for easy access! What is he thinking?! With that analogy, we might as well erase the borders and become one big community! That, I fear, is the plan anyway.

The power and reach of government into citizens' lives has grown substantially under President Bush's administration, instead of decreasing, as Republicans usually stand for smaller government. This has me questioning a proposal by Scott Silverman, chairman of VeriChip Corp., to track legal immigrants with chip implants under the skin. "We have talked to many people in Washington about using it," he said in an interview on Fox and Friends, a TV show on the Fox News Channel. Senators have mulled over the proposal, and are seriously considering the idea.

Senator arlen Specter (R-Pa) to Congress:

"President Uribe said he would consider having Colombian workers have microchips implanted in their bodies before they are permitted to enter the US for seasonal work," he said.

The RFID (Radio Frequency ID) VeriChip tag is trying to gain momentum, and in my opinion, raises serious privacy concerns. I've written on the subject in an earlier article, Technology...a blessing and a curse, and I'm leery of the government tracking me, or tagging me as if I were livestock.

Right now, keeping track of immigrants through the VeriChip has only been relegated to an idea, but a scary one nonetheless. This could be a possibility for immigrants, but imagine what could be proposed in the future for those who are citizens.

How much power are we allowing the government to have? What is their true plan?

a project in the works to connect Canada, america, and Mexico through the I-69 highway has me connecting the dots. It is indeed a massive project that is intended to allow for the easy flow of goods and services, under the banner of "free trade." This will no doubt inconvenience many people, and right now, in my area of Tennessee, local governments are meeting with the public about possible changes they may experience due to the I-69 highway running through this area.

The entire I-69 project has been in planning mode for some time. Currently I-69 begins in the state of Indiana and runs through Michigan to the Canadian border. But other states like Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas will also be affected as talks heat up about extending the highway all the way to Mexico.

I feel that the Federal Government is now urging local governments to discuss this plan with citizens whom the I-69 project will affect, so they can get the ball rolling. But at what cost do we allow this to continue? How will I-69 truly benefit the U.S.?

Yes, many of us were in the frame of mind that the government couldn't possibly be planning a merger with Canada and Mexico, but now I believe it's fast becoming a reality and no longer can we ignore the signs.

It's something to think about...are our leaders planning to subvert the Constitution of the U.S. and U.S. sovereignty in favor of erasing our borders with our neighbors to the north and south?

Not many americans know of the possible Canada, america, Mexico merger and it's up to you, the reader to get the information out there so that americans can demand answers from our government. Why was this plan kept secretly under wraps and the public not told? We the people have a say in this!

Let's demand answers of the stealth plan, the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North america... surely the blueprint to the eventual U.S. merger with Canada and Mexico.
