North American Union and the Amero
The counter part of the European Union?

Recently I've been researching as much as I can about the North American Union between USA, Mexico and Canada and the eventual transition of the three countries' currency to the Amero. Supposedly, the NAU is meant to be the counterpart of the EU, and by 2010 the interior borders of the region (Mexico/USA & USA/Canada) would be eliminated and a superhighway would be constructed from Mexioco City all the way to Tronto (known by now as the NAFTA superhighway or Texas trans-corridor), kinda scary.

At first I thought it was a wacko conspirancy theory, but the more I read, the more I began to realize that this could be indeed true. The thing is that in case that the NAU is implemented, then the sovereignty of the three participant countries would be eliminated.

The whole thing is by far, more complex than it sounds, and it certainly deserves some researching on your own (if you're interested), but I would like to hear the opinions of some international webmasters, specially those from USA, Canada and Mexico (like myself)

very few people know about it.
the nau rarely gets mentioned in any major media here unless it is a metastory intended to dismiss or ridicule the conspiracy theory.

Sounds like “Roswell”
Did a few quick searches in both English and French major newspapers
Aside youtube and a few semi-serious kind of amateur written articles no real meat to be found on that topic.

but yes, the silence is deafening in corporate media.

when you see the NACC membership list you'll understand why it is so...

All posters please help me by keeping political references or links out of this thread.

A union with Mexico/Canada would probably guarantee energy self-sufficiency for the foreseeable future, I'd bet if Turkey was a major gas/oil producer they'd have received the red carpet welcome to the EU years ago.

Sorry, I didn't realize that the foo charter stated that no political discussions were allowed.

However, if the NAU takes place, a lot of political, social and economical problems will arise here in Mexico and also in Canada and USA as well and that's something to be worried about.

Only time will tell if this is true or it's just another big rumor, in the meantime, I won't buy any dollars and better keep Euros ;)... since the US$ won't likely recover in the foreseeable future.

Never going to happen.

There might be a highway, I would even support it. But Canada would never give up our sovereignty. Never.

It's an interesting thought, but seems unlikely due to the rather different circumstances in each country. Most of the original EU countries were quite similar by comparison. I wouldn't expect a complete loss of sovereignty in any participant, that would be too difficult of an obstacle in each country.

On the other hand, each participant would bring important resources to some kind of loose economic union.

Political intertia being what it is, though, the most likely outcome is nothing.

Can't see much in it for Canada right now, though if things in the Arctic start getting "interesting"...
