Buenos Dias, Eh?

The term “New World Order” sets conservatives on edge and fills liberals with ecstasy. Some claim that the European Union is one step along the path towards a single, unified world government, despite the constant inter-member bickering. Now, if President Bush and several industry leaders have their way, NAFTA will be supplanted by a new North American Union comprised of the United States, Mexico, and Canada, complete with its own “Amero” currency.

This concept is not championed by a few, obscure businessmen. Take this quote from the linked article:
The U.S. executives involved in the NACC ["North American Competitiveness Council"] include: United Parcel Service Inc. Chairman Michael Eskew; Frederick Smith, chairman of FedEx Corp.; Lou Schorsh, chief executive of Mittal Steel USA; Joseph Gilmour, president of New York Life Insurance Co.; William Clay Ford, chairman of Ford Motor Co.; Rick Wagoner, chairman of General Motors Corp.; Raymond Gilmartin, CEO of Merck & Co. Inc.; David O'Reilly, chief executive of Chevron Corp.; Jeffrey Immelt, chairman of General Electric Co.; Lee Scott, president of Wal-Mart Stores Inc.; Robert Stevens, chairman of Lockheed Martin Corp.; Michael Haverty, chairman of Kansas City Southern; Douglas Conant, president of Campbell's Soup Co. and James Kilt, vice-chairman of Gillette Inc.

One of the reasons industry leaders like this idea is the abundance of cheap labor. The obvious downside to this idea is that many blue-collar jobs would be given to formerly-foreign workers who are willing to work for lower wages.

Should this plan be implemented, the middle class as we know it would be decimated. Redistribution of wealth would take place in abundance as family after family would file for bankruptcy. More so than ever, wealth in the (former) United States would be concentrated among the top echelons of corporations, and political power would belong squarely in the camp of the Liberals, since the middle class backbone of conservatives would be broken.

What further scares me is the potential loss of some of our civil rights, the loss of our political representation, and the imposition of taxes and laws against which I am firmly opposed, such as being forced to underwrite abortion availability and homosexual lifestyle “education” of schoolchildren through new taxes while being prevented from speaking out against such topics by restrictions on “hate speech”.

Does this sound scary? Do I sound paranoid for even mentioning this? Even I think so, even as I sit here reading the article and writing this post. However, I can’t help but wonder how accurate this is.

I encourage everyone to read the linked article and form your own opinion. Research more if you can. Input is definitely welcome.
