Dr. Paul's Birthday Stand..A Defining Moment
Dr. Paul's letter today that was read at one of the press conferences held by the Coalition to Block the North American Union is receiving a great deal of press already. On this his birthday, it was a defining moment. In case you missed Kent's release, this is a portion of Dr. Paul's letter:
"The chief project thus far of the SPP is the so-called NAFTA superhighway which would connect Mexico, the United States and Canada, cutting a wide swath through the middle of Texas and up through Kansas City," warned Republican Congressman Ron Paul in a statement read at one of the morning news events in Ottawa yesterday.
"Millions would be displaced by this massive undertaking which would require the eminent domain actions [expropriations] on an unprecedented scale. ... A Spanish construction company, it is said, plans to build the highway and operate it as a toll road."
In reference to some comments made about Congressman Virgil Goode's contribution and support of Dr. Paul in an earlier blog, I want to point out that Congressman Goode was the chief sponsor of House Concurrent Resolution 40, which opposes the North American union and "NAFTA Superhighway." Duncan Hunter and Ron Paul signed on to it. Congressman Goode is our friend in one of the biggest battles being fought right now. I applaud his contribution and endorsement of Ron Paul as well as the very strong stand he has taken against the NAU.
To me this is a defining moment and I am so proud of Dr. Paul for the stand he has taken so publicly and visibly. There will be some negative press...but to have a Presidential Candidate take a major stand on this will help get it into the forefront and, I believe, it is a great showcase for so many current challenges to our freedom and liberty. Articles mentioning Dr. Paul are all over the canadian press. It will be interesting to see what the media here does with it and if it will become a debate question. This, of course, is all about transparency in government, but it is about so much more. Here is one article:
