North Atlantic Union

There are times when I just like to sit down and speculate based on the continuing narrative of history. On rare occasion, I even get something right. So, way back in history, just after WWII had settled down, European countries were still separate and apart. Borders existed. Germany had their mark. France had the franc. Italy had the lira. There were officials manning border posts. Passports and visas were checked. Nationalism was rampant.

Then discussions were held and decisions were made. The European Union was born. Borders existed on paper and signposts only. Individual currencies were converted to euros. Laws were passed that affected all continental Europeans equally. Nationalism exists only in insistence on using their native tongue.

In 1994, Bill Clinton signed the North American Free Trade Agreement, commonly known as NAFTA. Was this supposed to be the start of a North American Union? I don't know for a fact, but I suspect that it was. Once it was implemented and Americans saw jobs leaving the United States and flooding into Mexico, NAFTA became really unpopular. Especially with labor unions. So if any further movement forward was intended it sort of stopped there.

I said, "sort of". By that I mean that our southern border has become more porous yearly since 1994. Just recently, Joe Biden, our own vice President said that he "considers illegal immigrants to be US citizens". That is bizarre. There is a strange reluctance in the administration to deport illegals even if they have committed crimes.

Now, our current President is a globalist. He does not believe in American exceptionalism. He has been working to remodel the United States in the European image. He is weakening our military and socializing our health care. He has depleted the strength of the economy.

President Obama plans to turn the internet over to international control. Not a good thing. America invented it and it's freedom is protected by our First Amendment. He has expressed agreement with a UN treaty on arms control that is contrary to the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

If you are driving down an unknown road and the shrubbery thins out and you start to see sand. The farther you go, the more sand you see. You don't expect to, suddenly, see mountains and pine trees. What I ask is this. Are we heading for a North Atlantic Union, where the United States, Canada, and Mexico would join with the European Union? Is the intent to sell out the United States, lock, stock, and Constitution? Think about where we are, where we have been, and who is driving the bus. Can you blame me for asking the question?
