    I only found out about this recently. Curiously, I didn't see it reported on mainstream news. Did you?

    So, what do you think about the North American Union, and its new currency the Amero which will replace the US dollar.

      This was started by George W. Bush and it is just the beginning.  Look into Agenda 21 if you really want to see what is being planned for us.

      It started way before Bush...it is a continuing agenda of world elitists...but have heart, for with knowledge of these agendas, people are waking up and foiling the elitists plans right and left.

      Search for updated information, the name of the North Ameircan Union has been changed by the current administration to throw people off the "scent". The Federal Reserve is being exposed for the manipulating power it brought and becuase the people are waking up and standing up for their rights and US soverngty aspects of the One World Plan are being squelched.

      But don't be fooled into thinking the elitists will stop, it seems to be a "nature" they can't divorce themselves from and will continue to entice people the rich and influencial ad naseum till the day they die.

      So ultimately that is the only ongoing "war" in the world...the war within one's own being deciding to be an elitist or a drone of ignorance...or a freedom fighter for liberty.

      In the US there are people organizing and rising up verbally and actively to denounce the manipulation, and raise the US Constitution...check them out at www.givemeliberty.org

      while i am concerned this may happen in the future, it hasn't yet even with all the talk that it would. so either it won't happen in the near future or it will happen when we least expect it, out of left field.

      i imagine a lot of what is expected to happen will hit america like a ton of bricks.

      Surely there would have to be a major financial meltdown before the Americans accepted the Amero.  And I mean really, really major.

      The reason the "Amero" hasn't been covered by the mainstream media is that it's an urban legend. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amero

      They have been selling us out for decades.

      We will not be a soveriegn nation long, if most in the world have their way about it.

      It wasn't on mainstream news because it is BS. Someone has just created this, based around the Euro's introduction in mainland Europe, hence the name Amero. Search it on Wikipedia, it is a conspiracy theory and a false one.

        This was reported (briefly) on CNN by Lou Dobbs and certain financial experts on CNBC were discussing buying the Amero. Is that mainstream enough for you? Have you watched the video? If you watch and reject it, that's fine, but watch it first.

          Lou Dobbs is hardly mainstream. He's supported all kinds of nutjob issues and proposals. He's almost as bad as Glenn Beck. He "resigned" recently from CNN.

            I heard it on Hannity a few years ago.  It really is ashame we have so few stand up guys we can rely on in the media to report important issues or the dispelling of crank side bars.

      rhamsonposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I heard about this a few years ago on Hannity when I used to listen to him.  There seemed to be something to it but the source of it bothered me too much to take it to heart.

      With the lack of serious interest in border security and the flagrant way we drive up debt it seems as though this is being brought on purposely by our government.  The media taking up the news black out is a little bit of a stretch what with lagging newspaper sales and the obvious profit in exposing this conspiracy.

      Perhaps we should review the Federal Reserve Bank and it's operations but with former members of the Fed being part of the current administration I doubt that can have any credibility if pursued.

    I have read quite a bit about the North American Union, from mainstream media reports.  I have heard of the Amero before, but have not been able to confirm anything about it. 

    One blog that I researched it on said that their YouTube accounts were closed within a short while of posting supposed footage of the printing of the Amero.

    Why is the North American Union and the Amero so shocking? Bush apparently signed off on this in 2005, and we already have the European Union and the Euro. 
    Did you actually watch the video before commenting on it?

          You're welcom. Anyway, the Amero isn't a totally ridiculous idea. The EU countries seemed to have benefited from their relationship without obliterating the sovereignty of the member countries.

            I live in a country that's part of the EU, and I can't think of a single benefit of being a member.  Unless you like masses of pointless red tape that is.

              Faster border crosses and a higher amount of cheaper trade are good. If you live in the UK, the fishing gets screwed over though. So many foreign boats in our waters taking our fish... Even when it's already running low.

                  I'll give you the faster border crosses but that easily gets cancelled out by the ludicrous security procedures at airports (like queueing up for over an hour at Stansted to take your shoes off :snort:).  YMMV but I don't see any signs of cheaper trade, unless you count the fact that we can now bring a bit more cheap French booze back across the Channel than we used to. 

                  What's worse is that fishermen have to chuck back fish that's over quota, even though it's dead.  Our waters have lower fish stocks (dangerously low for some species) than they would have done under the old national borders system, and I think that's actually a result of EU policy rather than being unrelated. 

                  What's always bothered me about the EU is that it was sold to us as a free trading thing, when in reality it was all about creating a giant bureaucratic superstate.  But the movers and shakers behind it couldn't be honest about that, because nobody would have accepted it.  So it's been imposed on us by deception.

                    Britons would do well to take to the streets to stop such fishing practices -- eastern Canada had one of the world`s most gigantic stock of fish, which has, for the first time since Europeans arrived in 1497, collapsed completely (as of the early nineties). Here, too, people blame foreign overfishing (by EU boats in fact), but the truth is that draggers simply dredged everything up and threw back the stuff that was too small for market -- and ecological and economic disaster was the result. Unemployment where I live is now nearly thirty percetn as a result.

    The idea of the Amero is awful!  What fun could our children have collecting Canadian and Mexican money, if we all used the same currency? 

    Who would want to be without the 'loony' and the 'twoony'?  Not me!  wink

    1. AdsenseStrategies profile image70
      AdsenseStrategiesposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      The objection in Europe was (and remains in Britain) that a currency implies a central banking reserve. Countries that have the euro have to bow to the European Central Bank on many issues... Canada and Mexico would have to do the same. The United States would never allow such an entity to dictate to it in real terms...

      ...Seeing as the biggest cushion Canada had during the recession was some control over its own financial life, let us (Canadians) damn well hope our government does not move us towards this -- despite being Neo-Cons (Canadian flavoured) who were happy to be aligned to Bush, and followers of the Calgary School of which Bush economics were also a part.

      Ask David Rockefeller. Just shoot him an email and I'm sure he'll be only too happy to explain his plans for our future, and give you details on the deisgn of the new currency. After all, we do have freedom of information and transparency of Govt don't we. We do don't we?
