- The SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America), aka the "North American Union," is real.
- The Trans-Texas Corridor, the basis for the rumored "NAFTA Superhighway," is a real plan in action.
- Finally, the creation of a North American currency, the Amero, is also a legit notion, no doubt greatly exaccerbated by this bit of information:...congress turned over control of coining and regulating U.S. Currency... to the Federal Reserve in 1913. The Federal Reserve is a quasi-government entity, and not part of the legislative branch of the United States government.
There's also this publication by the Council on Foreign Relations, entitled "Building a North American Community."
CFR wrote:To that end, the Task Force proposes the creation by 2010 of a North American community to enhance security, prosperity, and opportunity. We propose a community based on the principle affirmed in the March 2005 Joint Statement of the three leaders that ‘‘our security and prosperity are mutually dependent and complementary.’’
Its boundaries will be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter within which the movement of people, products, and capital will be legal, orderly, and safe. Its goal will be to guarantee a free, secure, just, and prosperous North America.
Rather than drudge through the InterWeb trying to figure out what's real and what's not, I figured I'd ask the smart people of the Cafe what they know is fact and what they know is fiction about all of this. Also, if others hadn't heard of all of this, it might be a good chance to educate people properly about what the heck is going on here.
