Working to kill America
Pittsburgh TRIBUNE-REVIEW ^ | September 1, 2006 | Dimitri Vassilaros

Posted on 09/01/2006 10:03:18 AM PDT by hedgetrimmer

For the morbidly curious, please go online -- www.spp.gov -- to see the end of America. The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, "a trilateral effort to increase security and enhance prosperity among the United States, Canada and Mexico through greater cooperation and information sharing," was launched March 2005 -- in Texas.

The premise of the near-treason is that the SPP hopes to unite this republic, Mexico and Canada in a near-suicide pact; that the security and prosperity of the gang of three are mutually dependent and complementary; and that the SPP supposedly will reflect the "shared belief" in freedom, economic opportunity and strong democratic values and institutions.

I think the Birchers might be on to something here.

The man who said this is evil and must be stopped before America is destroyed!

We live on a continent whose three countries possess the assets to make it the strongest, most prosperous and self-sufficient area on Earth. Within the borders of this North American continent are the food, resources, technology and undeveloped territory which, properly managed, could dramatically improve the quality of life of all its inhabitants.

It is no accident that this unmatched potential for progress and prosperity exists in three countries with such long-standing heritages of free government. A developing closeness among Canada, Mexico and the United States--a North American accord--would permit achievement of that potential in each country beyond that which I believe any of them--strong as they are--could accomplish in the absence of such cooperation. In fact, the key to our own future security may lie in both Mexico and Canada becoming much stronger countries than they are today.

No one can say at this point precisely what form future cooperation among our three countries will take. But if I am elected President, I would be willing to invite each of our neighbors to send a special representative to our government to sit in on high level planning sessions with us, as partners, mutually concerned about the future of our continent. First, I would immediately seek the views and ideas of Canadian and Mexican leaders on this issue, and work tirelessly with them to develop closer ties among our peoples. It is time we stopped thinking of our nearest neighbors as foreigners.

By developing methods of working closely together, we will lay the foundations for future cooperation on a broader and more significant scale. We will put to rest any doubts of those cynical enough to believe that the United States would seek to dominate any relationship among our three countries, or foolish enough to think that the governments and peoples of Canada and Mexico would ever permit such domination to occur. I for one, am confident that we can show the world by example that the nations of North America are ready, within the context of an unswerving commitment to freedom, to see new forms of accommodation to meet a changing world. A developing closeness between the United States, Canada and Mexico would serve notice on friends and foe alike that we were prepared for a long haul, looking outward again and confident of our future; that together we are going to create jobs, to generate new fortunes of wealth for many and provide a legacy for the children of each of our countries. Two hundred years ago, we taught the world that a new form of government, created out of the genius of man to cope with his circumstances, could succeed in bringing a measure of quality to human life previously thought impossible.

Now let us work toward the goal of using the assets of this continent, its resources, technology, and foodstuffs in the most efficient ways possible for the common good of all its people. It may take the next 100 years but we can dare to dream that at some future date a map of the world might show the North American continent as one in which the people's commerce of its three strong countries flow more freely across their present borders than they do today.

Ronald Reagan 1979

But, but but Reagan had members of his cabinet in the Council on Foreign relations. They were whispering in his ear, just like Bill Kristol hypmotized GWB into going to Iraq.

Canada and Mexico would certainly get better. But then we would have to deal with French speakers as well as Spanish speakers.

That must be why the Senate passed the security portion of the immigration bill for fencing, why Bush softened and has said he'd accept benchmarks after the borders are secured, prior to his guest worker program and why the House has stood firm all this time.

What would a few more states hurt. We could get a bigger flag. Teach them all to speak English. Of course they would have to accept that Canada and Mexico no longer exist. I'm sure they will all go for it.

Or maybe not.

I actually saw a bumpersticker the other day (the car probably belonged to a liberal) that said "Frodo failed...Bush has the ring."

Most of the Mexicans might be willing to exchange their sovereignty in exchange for our welfare system and the ability to legally resettle the SW, but at least some of the Canadians would tell us to p*ss up a rope.

Look what Reagan had to say about eminent domain.

Now it doesn’t require expropriation or confiscation of private property or business to impose socialism upon a people. What does it mean whether you hold the deed or the title to your business or property if the government holds the power of life and death over that business or property? Such machinery already exists. The government can find some charge to bring against any concern it chooses to prosecute. Every businessman has his own tale of harassment. Somewhere a perversion has taken place. Our natural, inalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation from government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment.” —Ronald Reagan

How right he was. I wonder what he would say now?

How do you "resettle" an area you have never previously inhabited?

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

I have no idea what the ring says. I haven't read the Tolkien series since I was in college a hundred years ago, and I didn't go see the movie series.

I does make the wearer incredibly powerful.

You use length and width specifiers, for example:

<IMG SRC="http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/ops/images/bush_ring-of-power.jpg" LEN="400" WIDTH="308">

Since this image is 800 by 616, the specifiers will render it at a quarter of its original size (1/2 x 1/2), like so:

Just give it a different size dimension.

< img src="http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/ops/images/bush_ring-of-power.jpg" width=400 height=308 >

But then you can't see the writing so well.

Whoops! Looks like I made it 308 by 237. I'm a baaaaaaaaad boy! Let's try this out.

I checked the properties, and it is now 400 by 308, so use:

<IMG SRC="http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/ops/images/bush_ring-of-power.jpg" WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="308"> (1/2 by 1/2 reduction)

I suppose I need a mandatory trip to the HTML sandbox. :-(

So basically I check 'Properties' for the size, and halve the numbers if I wish to halve the image?

Either that, or run it through some photo editing program where you can reduce the size. You can then save it to any number of free photo hosting sites like imageshack or photobucket and link it from there.

Canada is roughly the size of California in population. This should be split up to avoid creating another California.

Mexico is 108 million people. If you made mid-size states out of it, there would be 20 or 30 states. This would be trouble in the Senate if the Mexicans stay with the Dems.

That's it, if you wish to render it a quarter of its size. To make it 1/2 its size, you'd need to divide the numbers you find in properties by the square root of 2.

Making canadian provinces into states would be the constitutional route. But that would mean preserving the constitution as well, and that is not the agenda of the "free traders".

Kissinger said it best, if you want to change the United States you have to use treaties OUTSIDE the constitution.
