I was tickled when I visited YouTube this morning to see J. Clifford’s North American Union Superhighway video. It’s a bit of Blair Witchy satire mocking the idea that there exists some secret incipient North American Union — and pointing out that there are many highways and byways connecting the countries of North America already. What tickled me was the claim by a commenter named “onesheepdog”:
The U.S. borders are wide open. Go to the San Ysidro border (San Diego/Mexico) and there is no fence. If we are fighting the “War on Terror” then why are our borders not secure? You will see by 2010, there will be a Nafta Super Highway, a North American Union (merge of Canada, U.S. and Mexico) and the new currency…the Amero.
Onesheepdog is, literally speaking, correct. There is no fence at the San Ysidro border! There is a big, tall, border wall.
Just you wait, though! Mark Onesheepdog’s words! By 2010 — that’s in a year and a half — there will be a NAFTA superhighway, a merger of Canada, U.S. and Mexico, and a new currency called the Amero. Oh, I’ll be counting down the months. Oh, yes I will.
