Sov­er­eign threat

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

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. Thor Ron­nin­gen Wilm­ing­ton, North Carolina
