Re: Juan Mann`s Column: Elites Want U.S.-Mexico Merger—Hence The Flaw In H.R. 4437
Following up on Mann`s column, I submit that the focus on the immigration aspect of the North American Union has blurred our vision to the other components of the issue.
Mann asks: " . . . What can freedom-loving Americans do . . .?"
As I see it, while immigration is certainly in the spotlight, valuable resources to fight this proposed merger are being overlooked.
If the U.S. were to become part of the North American Union, we would become a new economic and political entity and our Constitution would be meaningless.
"Once a North American Union court structure is in place, one can almost certainly predict that a 2nd Amendment challenge to the right to bear arms is as inevitable as is a challenge to our 1st Amendment free speech laws. Citizens of both Canada and Mexico cannot freely own firearms. Nor can Canadians or Mexicans speak out freely without worrying about `hate crimes` legislation or other political restrictions on what they may choose to say."
If you want to fill a room, a hall, a stadium, or even the streets, threaten our Second Amendment.
About 25.5 million living American veterans from every walk of life have one thing in common: they took an oath to defend the Constitution.
The call to them must go out again to fight the North American Union.
I propose we set a date, agree upon a location and start coalition building before it is too late.
