Canada's "deep" integration with the EU a model for the US

arctic entry becoming useful already

Canada's story should be an eye opener for anyone who doubts the U.S. will ever merge with Canada and Mexico into a regional union, or become subserviant to a central global government bureaucracy. The most telling part is how the public wasn't provided with copies of the drafts for the agreement (and how that fact is ommitted from the Globe and Mail article about the talks). We've been getting lots of visitors from Eastern Europe searching for "communitarian law." That's because deep EU integration requires modifying national law under the supremacy of communtarian law, and unlike America and Canada, some people in those nations know it's a very real legal process. I'll bet in Slovakia people don't call it a "conspiracy theory." I can't help thinking about the Irish and how they're doing since they rejected the Lisbon Treaty via a national vote. To give up a nation's sovereignty and independence should require full disclosure and a national vote, shouldn't it? And if it fails, it shoudn't be allowed to continue, should it?
