    Get a load o' this guy. He thinks the US will break up like the Soviet Union did! And Oregon will become part of China... Not sure I like that. I disagree. I think Oregon will become part of Belgium.

    I think Oregon, Idaho, Washington, and British Columbia would make a nice country. Maybe Wyoming and Montana, too. And Alaska.

    The integration of the US, Canada and Mexico is already well underway. In 2005 President Bush, along with his Mexican counterpart Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin met in Waco, Texas and approved the U.S./Mexico/Canada "Security and Prosperity Partnership" (SPP) agreement outlined in the report entitled "A Compact for North American Competitiveness".

    The key points include:
    Merge the U.S., Mexico and Canada into one country called North America
    Shared Currency
    Shared Military
    Shared Taxation
    Shared Multinational Identification Cards
    One Border



    It’s no wonder retailers can’t keep black rifles and .223 ammo in stock…

    He's off base on timing and (principally) due to resource distribution.

    I definitely see hard times coming for this country, and I would also bet that some states would consider or even vote to succeed from the .gov that has went way overboard, and I could just see Texas going under Mexican influence or control, NOT!!

    His article does touch on some strong points, but I am with Ghrit on our nation spliting apart like the article proposes. There is no way it could work as the author lays it out.

    I think that map just shows how little this professor understands Americans.

    Honestly, lumping Kentucky and Tennessee with Mass. or Vermont. Yeah they got a lot in common (now turning off the sarcasm).

    They would never join up with those damn Yankees. He may not know it but, the Civil War still matters to some in this country. I think if we split up the areas would be smaller than he predicted.

    So, what makes this guy think that Mexico or China will be in any position to take parts of the US of A? Don't think so... Not even worth a guffaw.

    Sorry, I forgot I was on the tin foil hat forum... This Atlantic American Union member has to go take out the (euro) trash. [tongue]

    Maybe that's how they will divide it up after all the people are dead.

    I just don't see this topic as anything besides unadulterated bull-poo.
