I am working on a diary regarding American isolationism in the Americas. True we already have NAFTA and soon CAFTA will be implemented. However, there are those who would prefer us to be isolated from its neighbors to the South. It seems that their is a swift boat attack by scaring people into thinking that there is a secret plot between Canada, Mexico, US to form a North American Union, with the evil Spanish conquistadors behind this master plan. Yes, you read correctly, it is bad enough the US is worried about the evil Mexican reconquistadors taking back its lost territory, but now the original conquistadors, Spain, is wanting to get a piece of the pis and is wanting to taking back its lost territories.
This being done by Jerome R. Corsi, co-author of the book Unfit for Command with John E. O'Neill, as well as Atomic Iran: How The Terrorist Regime Bought The Bomb And American Politicians. From WorldNetDaily.com
The contractors building the Trans-Texas Corridor - a massive statewide transportation network critics claim is an important part of the controversial proposed integration of the U.S. and Mexico - have made large contributions to the campaigns of Texas politicians, including Republican Gov. Rick Perry.
As WND has reported, opposition is mounting to the little-publicized efforts by the Bush administration, aided by corporate and political elites of the U.S., Mexico and Canada, including the Council on Foreign Relations, to push North America into a European Union-style merger. Critics of the Trans-Texas Corridor see the massive project - ironically funded by Spain - as part of this movement to integrate the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
So as you can see, Spain has been thrown into our mess.
So here is the deal, I want to write a diary about this non-sense. After looking into this further, I come to realize what Cosi, Lou Dobbs et al are afraid of, the Western Hemisphere will some adopt an agreement similar to what Europe has, the Schengen Agreement and one of the fears that they are promoting, is that the nations in Europe have lost all sovereignty.
Therefore, I was wondering if anybody could give me a pro and con about the European Union and the Schengen Agreement. I would rather have personal accounts than research I know I could find. What parts of the policies do you agree or disagree? How can the policy be improved? Most importantly, has your country actually lost their sovereignty?
Thank you in advance for your help.
