NAFTA Superhighway

Next Previous

Ron Paul has been harping on the idea of a NAFTA Superhighway since 2006. One of his favorite theories suggests a conspiracy to connect the United States, Mexico, and Canada with one giant road, eliminating U.S. sovereignty. He explains the idea in a post on libertarian commentator Lew Rockwell’s blog:

“This superhighway would connect Mexico, the United States, and Canada, cutting a wide swath through the middle of Texas and up through Kansas City. Offshoots would connect the main artery to the west coast, Florida, and northeast. Proponents envision a ten-lane colossus the width of several football fields, with freight and rail lines, fiber-optic cable lines, and oil and natural gas pipelines running alongside...

The ultimate goal 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.”
