A Perimeter Approach to Security and the Transformation of the U.S.-Canada Border

Through a series of bilateral meetings, U.S. and Canadian officials are busy working out the details of the perimeter security action plan. This includes a recent crime forum which dealt with border and law enforcement issues.

The proposed changes promise to bring about a radical transformation of the northern border.

There are fears that a joint biometric identification system would be used to track Canadians and Americans alike.

It is interesting to see the

It is interesting to see the baby steps big government takes to accomplish their goals. In 2006, there was a lot of commotion about the possibility of a North American Union that would rival the Eurozone. I've seen quite a few changes come in the past 10 years thereabouts in their attempts to get what they want. In the 1990s, they tried to allow trucks from Mexico into the United States and the people were in an uproar. Then quietly, last year the Federal Transportation Authority decided to do it under the radar and hardly anyone noticed. We had Rick Perry pushing the Trans-Texas Corridor which was to be a massive highway, 6 football fields wide that would run up from Mexico to Canada eventually. It would've carried electric lines, information lines, a railway, highway, etc. They were to take over thousands of acres of property for the project. 30,000 people showed up to a town hall meeting in opposition and the project stopped. When the people are boisterous, they think twice. But all they have to do is wait 10 years or so and try again without making it public. Then President Bush (GW) started Northcom with Canada to integrate their capabilities to thwart terrorism and use the two countries' militaries together. Now we have this. It's all incremental. If people don't care, what do you do? It's when we care and say something that it makes a difference. If the majority of Americans are going about their lives, don't understand our history, haven't read nor understand the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, what do you do? My daughter is in a first grade public school. I see her learning fundamentals like math, spelling, science but little American history. She knows George Washington's name and that he was the first president. The first 7 years of a child's life are the formative years and history is as important if not more than the fundamentals in this country. I'm 43 and can tell you that in my public school education, I never once read the Constitution nor Declaration of Independence (I have several times since). I was told that FDR was one of the best presidents we had. I learned little about the others. I learned about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln and that was it. I have taken the time to get several old history books together as well as some new detailed ones and am learning my history right. Never too late! And I can pass that on to my daughter. The kids are our future and it's our responsibility to make sure they understand why we have freedom.

I suggest

that it would be far more productive to leave these things alone, and let the people track and monitor the politicians and bureaucrats.
