In the history of the European Union (link above), it states:
...our hemispheric neighborhood and the world have changed dramatically, and the small seed planted at Punta del Este is in the process of blossoming into a hemispheric free trade area, and, I predict, into a future Common Market of the Americas. The North American Free Trade Agreement (`NAFTA') has set the stage for achieving free trade throughout the Americas and strengthening the economic and political relations between the United States, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean. -Ambassador Abelardo L. Valdez
The North American Union is the integration of the United States, Canada and Mexico initially. The integration of our economies, harmonization of laws, open borders and national treatment de facto means the disintegration of these countries as sovereign nations. Ultimately it will include all of the countries of North and South America into one big non-descript region.
"...former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev visited Britain in 2000, he accurately described the European Union as "the new European Soviet." He said this with obvious approval, since he sees the evolving EU as fulfilling his vision of a "common European home" stretching "from the Atlantic to the Urals,"
Caution: Since the 1980's, language has been used to mask the truth of what is being discussed.
The use of the word 'partnership' is case in point. It sounds friendly and nice - neighborly. You have to peel off the mask of language and use the real words the words that accurately describe what they are talking about. "Partnership" means integration - integration of law and the functions of our governments - which by definition means the disintegration of national sovereignty.
"President Fox has been urging an expanded European Union-like conception of NAFTA"
The first summit was held in Punta del Este, Uruguay in 1967. The idea right from the start was to create a Common Market - integrating the economies, first of the Latin American countries and then the North American countries.
"Economic integration demands a major sustained effort to build a land transportation network and to improve transportation systems of all kinds so as to open the way for the movement of both people and goods throughout the Continent; to establish an adequate and efficient telecommunications system; to install inter-connected power systems; and to develop jointly international river basins, frontier regions, and economic areas which include the territory of two or more countries." -President Lyndon B. Johnson

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries." -David Rockefeller Baden-Baden, Germany 1991
