I started my research into candidates yesterday, beginning with Ron Paul. I read his entire campaign website, wikipedia page, national congress page, and his legislative proposals for the last 3 congressional sessions. One of the the items I repeatedly came across while doing this is his idea of 'absolute sovreignty.' He has continuously proposed for the US to exit the UN, and keeps bringing up his disdain for our involvments such as NAFTA, CAFTA, and any international committee. When he says he wants to adopt a policy of non-involvment, he isn't joking. Now, I personally patently DISAGREE with this idea, however, I kept coming across something I had never seen, the idea of a 'North American Union.' I assume that this would be similar to the EU, and tie together canada and mexico. Has anyone heard of this concept and, if so, can you give me a summary on the workings of this (is it theoretical, are people actually pushing for it, is there actually documentations of the beginnings)?
