• Mexico president urges North American integration after Brexit

    Ottawa (AFP) - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Monday called for greater integration with Canada and the United States in the wake of Britain's vote to split with the European Union.

    Nieto, who spoke during a stopover in Quebec City, is scheduled to attend a North American leaders summit in Ottawa on Wednesday with his US and Canadian counterparts.

    The three countries are economic partners in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and work closely on security matters.

      Ron Paul is in favor of a massive, unrepresentative, North American State?

      Congratulations open border proponents =p. We can become the North American Union in no time. Since we don't care about our borders, we might as well merge with Mexico and even Canada. Hell, Canada would be awesome, they have plenty of water we can transport down to the states .

      Double Hell, let's just integrate with the entire south American continent as well :3.. We can be the AMERICAN UNION. AU... Au... GOLD!!!

      No way!

      And North American integration is not going to qualify the Mexican
      President
      for any special discount on the cost of building the Trump Wall.

      Doesn't sound to me like he's in favor of it:

      “Once again, decisions that affect millions of Americans are not being made by those Americans themselves, or even by their elected representatives in Congress,” says Paul. “Instead, a handful of elites use their government connections to bypass national legislatures and ignore our Constitution – which expressly grants Congress the sole authority to regulate international trade.”

      The ultimate goal, he says, is not simply a superhighway “but an integrated North American Union – complete with a currency, a cross-national bureaucracy and virtually borderless travel within the union. Like the European Union, a North American Union would represent another step toward the abolition of national sovereignty altogether.”

      Ron's been critical of a NAU for as long as we have been a forum or longer. It's been discussed many times since 2007....

      If you don't care about your borders, you don't care about your sovereignty. Why have borders in the first place? hehe

      I know, I was just addressing erowe's ridiculous statement that suggested Ron Paul was in favor of more super state merging.

      Right. I was just backing that up by showing that anyone here from '07 should know Ron's position regarding it.

      Nothing screams 'SOVEREIGNTY' quite like being arrested for 'being illegal' or hiring people not on a government approved list...

      I think I share virtually the same position as most 'open border' RPFers.

      Even if we disregard the CONstitutionalist POV and only accept anarchism(my preference, in all disclosure), there would still exist the concept of private property. Do you think the typical private property owner would be okay with trespassers, foreign or domestic? I highly doubt it, as property owners are normally rationally self-interested and thus do not want trespassers on their property. Even the more "liberal" anarchists accept the importance and legitimacy of property boundaries. (See "Boundaries Of Order" https://mises.org/library/boundaries...-social-system by Schaffer and "Privatization Of Roads And Highways" by Block https://mises.org/library/privatizat...s-and-highways)
