Here is some analysis and commentary from The New American:

Secret Agenda: Obama Presses North American Union (and TPP, TTIP) With Mexico, Canada

President Obama’s February 19 meeting in Toluca, Mexico, with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper (right) and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto (center) did not produce any big, headline-grabbing breakthroughs, but that does not mean that it didn’t lay new ground for political and economic integration of the three nations. In fact, in their Joint Statement issued at the conclusion of the summit, the three leaders affirmed their commitment to a number of initiatives, many of which are already far developed, including approval of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the "trade” agreement that is stirring widespread opposition in all three countries.

The controversial TPP is evoking broad-spectrum hostility particularly because of the total secrecy under which it has been crafted; while the American public and even the U.S. Congress have been kept from seeing the text, privileged corporations and NGOs have been given full access to the negotiated documents.

The Joint Statement unequivocally endorses the TPP, declaring:

ROFL It's their ICLEI approved Vision Statement!

How stupid do they think we are?
Chatanooga, TN 'Vision' adventure
El Paso, TX 'Vision' adventure
Davie, FL 'Vision' adventure
and the list goes on and on and on
ICLEI, knowing that enough Americans know what's going on, no longer lists the individual cities in the US that are its members so the people in those cities can't protest. As if those people don't already know what to look for, like searching the web for their city's 'vision statement'!
Scum.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Riiiiight.

Riiiiight.

And in just 20 years after that, and enough of continued, thoroughly planned plunder - by the same do-gooders - it'll be time to unite also with the other two, the Central, and South Americas - for a better "sharing", in "everybody's" best interests... of course.

We can always ask "Europeans" how economic federalism worked out

We can always ask "Europeans" how economic federalism (*) - vs. economic sovereignty - worked out for them, thus far.

Can't we?

(* and centralized banking-flavored of course!)

We should just go ahead and

We should just go ahead and adopt Mexico as the 51st state. Would be a mess in the short term, but would fix all that border stuff long term.
In all seriousness, when do we invade Mexico?

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

They have taken the initiative...
