Another Step Closer

Still one of the most memorable moments of the early Presidential campaigning was when Ron Paul was grilled about his subscription to supposed "conspiracy theories" about a planned North American Union. I must admit that when I first heard mumblings about it I too was rather skeptical...I've heard so much chicken little talk coming from Christian pre-millennial pre-tribulation alarmists like Hal Lindsey that I've become kinda immune to it. All the news surrounding the incredibly ridiculous amnesty bill late last year though lead me to news about the superhighway being built across Mexico, America and Canada. It didn't take long to figure out that Ron Paul was absolutely right...there seems to be a concerted but quiet effort to move the United States towards economic and social integration with Canada and Mexico (especially the latter).

Well, it seems the governments have taken a step closer by laying the foundation for a North American Army. Of course, this was done without any Congressional approval whatsoever. Reading through the linked article you'll see some other things that have been pushed through that should make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. It's amazing how much of our freedom is quietly being taken away from us. Many of these encroachments are silent...things which would only be done "in the event of an emergency" or in a "time of crisis." The problem is that the ones who hold this power get to decide what constitutes such an emergency or crisis and when an event meets their definition.

Again, I'm not a conspiracy theorist...but it seems like all it would take is a particular set of circumstances to trigger a complete and rapid transformation of this country from "free" to authoritarian.
