NORTH AMERICAN UNION DEBATE TO BEGIN IN CONGRESS

Representative Virgil Goode is the first member of the US legislature to introduce a congressional resolution with regard to President George W. Bush's plans to unite the United States with Mexico and Canada thereby creating the so-called North American Union.

A Republican lawmaker from Virginia, Goode's resolution urges Bush "not to go forward with [his plans to create] the North American Union or the NAFTA Superhighway system."

As the resolution's main sponsor his "message is to both the executive and legislative branch [sic] of government."

Rep. Goode, who serves as a ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Transportation, recently introduced HCR40, titled "Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should not engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada."

The bill also has been referred to the House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Debate on the North American Union is scheduled to begin later this week in Congress.

During a conversation with NewsWithViews.com, Canadian newspaper columnist Rachel Marsden said, "Frankly, any formalization of a North American union isn't really on the radar in Canada, as it's already here in practice. North American free trade already exists, as does the relatively free flow of people across [the Canadian] borders."

"If there are security related concerns, then how about starting with examining why, for example, one of every five LEGAL immigrants to Canada are Muslim and therefore of the same ideology with which we are currently at war?" said the Toronto Sun columnist and former co-host of Fox News Channel's "Red Eye."

"What's the point of obsessing about bolting down the front door when the back door is wide open?" asks Marsden.

In a statement to the media, Goode said: "You won't hear the leadership in the Republican Party admit it, but there are many in the House and Senate who know that illegal immigration has to be stopped and legal immigration has to be reduced. We are giving away the country so a few very rich people can get richer."

When asked how he reacted when President Bush referred to those who suggest that his actions could turn into the North American Union as "conspiracy theorists"?

"The president is really engaging in a play on words," Goode responded.

"The secretary of transportation came before our subcommittee," he explained, "and I had the opportunity to ask her some questions about the NAFTA Superhighway. Of course, she answered, 'There's no NAFTA Superhighway.' But then Mary Peters proceeded to discuss the road system that would come up from Mexico and go through the United States up into Canada."

According to GOP political strategist Mike Baker, "President Bush is alienating more and more conservatives who see through his secrecy when it comes to globalism, unbridled illegal immigration and deterioration of US sovereignty."

Rep. Goode states that the Bush administration supports both a NAU regional government and a NAFTA Superhighway system. In his press release, Goode stated, "The Bush Administration as well as Mexico and Canada have persons in the government in all three countries who want to a see a North American Union as well as a highway system that would bring goods into the west coast of Mexico and transport them up through Mexico into the United States and then in onto Canada."

The Virginia congressman said he believes the motivation behind the movement toward North American integration is the anticipated profits the large multinational corporations in each of the three countries expect to make from global trade, especially moving production to China.

But others believe the motivation is replacing the current US population, many of whom tend to be conservative, with a population more prone to socialism and authoritative government.

"The dream of the so-called Progressives is to replace the current population -- who give socialism and Marxism the thumbs down in the US -- with a population of ignorant and easily indoctrinated people who'll be swayed to accept the New World Order," said a US senate staffer whose boss favors creation of NAU.

In addition to fighting Bush's plans for the NAU, Congressman Goode supports establishing English as the official language of the United States. He is cosponsoring H.R. 769, to declare English as the official language of the United States and H. J. Res 19, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to establish English as the official language of the United States.

"English should be the official language of the United States. In countries where there is a lack of common unifying language, there is more discord and often efforts to split up the country. Having one common language can be a significant unifying force. We need only to look to the north to Canada," said Goode.

"Canada has had three elections over the past couple of decades in an effort to split French speaking Quebec off from the rest of the English speaking Canada," he said.

When Mexican President Calderon delivered his State of the Union speech, he said, "We strongly protest the unilateral measures taken by the US Congress and government that have only persecuted and exacerbated the mistreatment of Mexican undocumented workers. The insensitivity towward those who support the US economy and society has only served as an impetus to reinforce the battle ... for their rights. Mexico does not end at the border. Wherever there is a Mexican, Mexico will be therre."

"Indeed part of Mexico is moving into the United States, but unfortunately that includes drug runners, gang violence and the Spanish language supplanting English," said Rep. Tom Tancredo, a fierce fighter against the Bush Administration's immigration policy and policy regarding US sovereignty.

"I'm sure the people of Mexico would be extremely grateful if Calderon showed as much concern over the well being of Mexicans unlucky enough to still live there as he does for the people who have successfully fled his country," quipped Tancredo, who has been a close ally of Rep. Virgil Goode.
