"The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) was launched in March of 2005 as a trilateral effort to increase security and enhance prosperity among the United States, Canada and Mexico through greater cooperation and information sharing.
This trilateral initiative is premised on our security and our economic prosperity being mutually reinforcing. The SPP recognizes that our three great nations are bound by a shared belief in freedom, economic opportunity, and strong democratic institutions.
The SPP provides the framework to ensure that North America is the safest and best place to live and do business. It includes ambitious security and prosperity programs to keep our borders closed to terrorism yet open to trade.
The SPP builds upon, but is separate from, our long-standing trade and economic relationships. It energizes other aspects of our cooperative relations, such as the protection of our environment, our food supply, and our public health."Now, what does Smarth Growth and Community Development have to do with the SPP? Well, land use and transportation are "integrated": http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/planning/landuse/index.htm
"The FHWA believes that "smart growth" is a concept best supported by a set of policies and programs intended to protect and preserve valuable natural and cultural resources. "Smart growth" also encourages economic development in targeted locations. While transportation is not specifically mentioned in that working definition, it is important to note that transportation affects land use just like affordable housing, good schools, and low crime rates." http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/planning/sgindex.htm
The Federal Highway Administration is DIRECTLY connected to EVERY communitarian program underway in the United States: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/epasg.htm
It really doesn't matter if you're for or against this whole new trade agreement. This plan for world government is too complete. It allows for ZERO dissenting votes or opinions. Ask the French and Dutch voters what happens when their two nations included in the European Union voted against the establishment of a new "European Union" constitution. Their EU leaders simply signed a new treaty at Lisbon that adopted the "failed" EU constititution anyway.
Notice how the above map shows the trade route goes all the way to Fairbanks, Alaska? Well it's been amazing to watch how huge Fairbanks has grown over the past decade. The new Mitchell and Johansen Expressways were built in a large circle around the town, and massive building has been ongoing... huge new Wal Marts and Borders Bookstores in a dying town that has little to no industrial or agricultural base. It looked to me like "somebody" knew something BIG was going to happen that would create a populace to sustain all the new corporate stores. Rural Planning is a very important piece: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/planning/rural/index.html
So don't worry about a thing Amerika. In the USA and Canada, we're still arguing over the reality of our emerging North American Union. We don't expect any national referendums to arise from the populace in our "free" nations. Not that it would make a bit of difference even if the SPP/NAU did end up as a legally proposed constitutional amendment. Our state legislatures would probably vote for ALL of it, regardless of what their constituents want. Nothing will be allowed to sway the path of the emerging synthesis. It's our evolutionary destiny, okay?
Don't waste your precious time away from the TV or sports by even thinking about the NAU. If you must do something "political," Christian conservatives can follow their Israeli leaders at the Horowitz Freedom Center and put all their energy into fighting the illusive Islamofascists. The left can do what they've always done. As top leaders on both sides know, promoting dialectical conflicts ensures the REAL issues facing North America are left to the more educated, moral people who should be making all the important top level decisions in secret anyway, right?
My country's tired of me
I've joined the SPP
of three I sing
Land where the U.S. ends
where all of Canada bends
We're all Mexican tequilla blends
Let new slavery ring!
