Many U.S. citizens are not aware of the Security and Prosperity Partnership agreement President Bush signed with the Mexican president and the Canadian prime minister at Waco, Texas in 2005 or what it entails for all of us. By eliminating economic borders, allowing Mexican and Canadian nationals complete freedom of our infrastructure and eventually a common currency, American sovereignty would no longer exist. Commerce Department groups are already working on ways to implement this agreement, and the Texas legislature is already drawing up plans to start a superhighway that will go from Mexico to Canada through the center of our country with little or no U.S. control.
Many of these same citizens also are unaware that President Bush is pushing for Senate ratification of the U.N. Law of the Sea Convention that President Reagan rejected out of hand some years ago with overwhelming approval of the electorate. Under terms of this convention, the U.S. Navy would have to ask permission to sail international waters and many U.N. regulations would have the force of law in America.
I do not think most Americans favor either of the above actions and cannot understand why the written and broadcast media have said practically nothing about either of them. I am proud to have voted for President Bush and cannot comprehend why he is promoting such actions, but feel both must be soundly defeated for this to remain the United States I have known for more than 80 years.
