From the October 2006 Idaho Observer:
The Minuteman Project recently held a conference billed as "Project U-Turn." We find the name "Operation U-Turn" to be an excellent banner under which all concerned Americans engaging in various efforts to "turn their country around" can find themselves sharing common ground. Let’s face it, every avenue of our national momentum is heading the wrong direction and we need to develop political power through popular resolve to make unilateral u-turns before our leaders send us off a cliff of contemporary reality and into the great historical abyss.
The specific purpose of Operation U-Turn, however, is to force aliens entering the country illegally at the southern border to make a U-turn back to Mexico and to stop the political process that is dissolving the borders between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico to create a North American Union. One of the most hotly contested issues is the planning and construction of "The North American Free Trade Agreement Superhighway System." Two main corridors are being proposed—one of them up through Texas and into Canada through the Midwest U.S. and the other one up through Arizona and into Canada through Utah and Idaho.
Official notice that some Americans are opposed to the NAFTA Superhighway System has been served in the form of House Concurrent Resolution 487 sponsored by Rep. Virgil Goode (R-Va.) and cosponsored by Reps. Walter Jones (R-NC), Tom Tancredo (R-CO) and Ron Paul (R-TX).
HCONRES 487, while not binding in any way, at least memorializes the unwillingness of America’s informed minority who are not supportive of the federal government’s intent to secretly implement a plan to unify all of North America into a fascist exploitation zone under a regional form of administrative governance in violation of our laws.
HCON 487 IH
H. CON. RES. 487
Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should not engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada.
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
September 28, 2006
Mr. GOODE (for himself, Mr. PAUL, Mr. JONES of North Carolina, and Mr. TANCREDO) submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and in addition to the Committee on International Relations, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned.
Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should not engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada. Whereas, according to the Department of Commerce, United States trade deficits with Mexico and Canada have significantly widened since the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA);
Whereas the economic and physical security of the United States is impaired by the potential loss of control of its borders attendant to the full operation of NAFTA;
Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System from the west coast of Mexico through the United States and into Canada has been suggested as part of a North American Union;
Whereas it would be particularly difficult for Americans to collect insurance from Mexican companies which employ Mexican drivers involved in accidents in the United States, which would increase the insurance rates for American drivers;
Whereas future unrestricted foreign trucking into the United States can pose a safety hazard due to inadequate maintenance and inspection, and can act collaterally as a conduit for the entry into the United States of illegal drugs, illegal human smuggling, and terrorist activities; and
Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System would be funded by foreign consortiums and controlled by foreign management, which threatens the sovereignty of the United States:
Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That—
(1) the United States should not engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System;
(2) the United States should not enter into a North American Union with
Mexico and Canada; and
(3) the President should indicate strong opposition to these or any other proposals that threaten the sovereignty of the United States.
Note: At this time it would be appropriate to begin making to local newspaper editors and your reps aware of HCONRES 487. If the fascists are hoping that their hemispheric exploitation zone will be erected in secrecy, then it is our duty to make the secret public.
