May 30, 2007 - Letter submitted by Alex Randis, Northridge, Cal.
Amid guarantees that the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) would stimulate commerce, spur job creation, curtail illegal immigration, and have no impact on U.S. independence, Congress approved it in November 1993.
NAFTA has been a disaster for many Americans. But most important, rulings From NAFTA's judicial panels have superseded state and federal court decisions, thereby overriding U.S. and state constitutions, and our independence.
The Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) was launched in March 2005 by President Bush, Mexico's President Fox, and Canada's Prime Minster Martin. Despite its pleasant sounding name, its purpose is to erase our Canadian and Mexican borders. Go to www.thenewamerican.com for details.
In September 2006, high-profile representatives from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico met in Banff, Canada for a closed-door meeting of the North American Forum. Mel Hurtig, a Canadian who attended said, "were talking about the integration of Canada [and Mexico] into the United States". For them to hold this meeting in secret and to make every effort to avoid [others] learning about it, right away, you've got to be hugely concerned.
Another step toward creation of a North American Union (NAU) is the construction of a NAFTA Superhighway. A ten-lane road for cars and trucks, with more lanes for oil, gas, and railroad lines are planned. Designed to link the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, it will require confiscating millions of acres of privately owned property by eminent domain.
If the Superhighway proceeds, and NAFTA, SPP, and NAU are in place, American law will be null and void, replaced by an incomprehensible mess of so-called trade law. NAFTA is the foundation for this mess. Tell congress to repeal NAFTA now!
