You may think it's 'hysteria', but what it actually is is an over-riding concern for the sovereignty of our nation. If you don't think that's possible look at what the EU has done to the sovereignty of IT'S nation-states...

To me it has nothing to do with immigrants per sec, as they are in the same boat we all are in. It has to do with losing any semblance of control over our economic destiny. I don't know if there is a formal plan for a NAU, but the multinationals are moving in that direction - making us all economic serfs under their dominion.

Why don't you read up on "NAFTA and the Super Highway" so you can get an idea of what parts and just how much of this country will be elimunated. And all for the benefit of who.StopSmartPortHome

Here's a look at their planned NAFTA Super-highway...



It's imagined to be 300 yards wide with 6 lanes in each direction, separate truck lanes, oil and gas pipelines in the median and a SOVEREIGN Mexican SmartPort in Kansas City!

Welcome to the NAU... Got Ameros???

I could see a union between Canada and the US. I can think of no benefit at all to either the US or Canada entering into a union with Mexico. It is not difficult to deduce who would be the winner in such a scenario (Mexico can dump all it's poor and undeucated on the US and Canada- hooray!) and who would be the losers (the US and Canada).
Anytime you enter into any kind of deal you have to stop and ask yourself, "What's in it for me?". If this deal offers no benefits at all to you or the benefits are outweighed by the negative consequences then it is not a good idea to go ahead with the arrangement. I can think of no way that a union that obliterates the borders between the US and Mexico would be anything other than an unmitigated disaster.

Agree with you as usual Andreabeth but I have to wait before I can give you another Rep.

Of course there is no benefit at all to our country with a union with Mexico. Mexico wants it because they want what we have. They are not willing to develop their country into what it could be because then they might have to give the Mestizos and Indians some real rights and freedoms.
