Wink and Smirk Policy

The Washington Post headline calls it the "Coalition of the Erring." They are referring to the unholy alliance of President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair and their truth-bending, fast-draw approach to the invasion of Iraq.

It turns out "Bring it On," and "Wanted Dead or Alive" are great sound bites but lousy policy.

But the headline could have described another shady coalition locked in a poorly conceived scheme called the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North American (SPP). To understand this formalized agreement between the U.S., Mexico and Canada all you need know is European Union.

The SPP envisions a North America without borders, free trade and common goals. This agreement is why George "The Decider" isn't doing anything about our porous southern border, and why Mexico's president Vicente Fox is acting like our overseer.

The deal is done, the fix is in, the only problem is no one told the U.S. citizen taxpayer.... who will do the paying, in all respects, for this stealth-attack realignment policy.

George the Elder waxed poetic about a "New World Order" until he was hushed by his poll-sensitive handlers. George the Lesser learned a lesson.... don't tell the country what you are doing, just do it and then evade and equivocate. That is why in March of 2005, after Bush's reelection, the SPP was formalized. But it was on the drawing board long before that.

In 2002 Fox bragged in Madrid: "Eventually, our long-range objective is to establish with the United States, but also with Canada, our other regional partner, an ensemble of connections and institutions similar to those created by the European Union."

This is why The Decider isn't protecting our borders, our language and our heritage. He decided we're no longer going to be a nation state.

Can we vote our way out of this mess in November?

It's unclear. Seems the GOP-leaning furnisher of the majority of our new voting machines, Diebold, has created a very vulnerable system. Voter groups are trying to stop this flawed voting process legally, but time is running out.

The country we have built, fought and died for is about to be abandoned with a wink and smirk.
