One thing which unites the conservatives, and gets them out to vote for the candidates which push policies contrary to the nation’s best interest, is the fear created by the right wing media. Rather than discuss what the opponents really advocate they invent straw men. They claim liberals are socialists, or that Democrats will take away their guns and bibles if elected. They said John Kerry would turn our national security over to foreigners, and his health care proposals are a government take over of health care (even though it is GOP policies which allow government to intrude upon the decisions of doctors and patients). This is how they got people to go out to vote for an incompetent pseudo-cowboy with delusions of WMD.
We’ve seen signs that Republicans are turning on Bush as his latest poll numbers include falling support among conservatives. Another indication that Bush will have a tough time recovering is that he has now become the target of conservative paranoia. Jerome Corsi, the plaigerist who spread his lies about John Kerry as co-author of Unfit For Command, claims in Human Events that Bush’s real plan is to replace the USA with a North American Union:
President Bush is pursuing a globalist agenda to create a North American Union, effectively erasing our borders with both Mexico and Canada. This was the hidden agenda behind the Bush administration’s true open borders policy.
Secretly, the Bush administration is pursuing a policy to expand NAFTA to include Canada, setting the stage for North American Union designed to encompass the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. What the Bush administration truly wants is the free, unimpeded movement of people across open borders with Mexico and Canada.
President Bush intends to abrogate U.S. sovereignty to the North American Union, a new economic and political entity which the President is quietly forming, much as the European Union has formed.
This will be an excellent article to refer anyone to who claims Corsi’s writings are in any way credible. I wonder if anyone will let Corsi know that Canada is already in NAFTA.
