The One Party System in America

is is something called the San Diego Initiative that appears to be happening now. I lfound the Hudson Institute which led me to look at their reports on trade. This led me to the report on the San Diego Initiative. Penny Pritzker is mentioned in paragraph 1. I outlined it here.
This is a document by the Hudson Institute it is called the San Diego initiative. This is a reinforcement of Nafta plus additions. I am providing an outline of the report. Penny Pritzker is mentioned on paragraph 1 here is the URL http://www.hudson.org/files/publications... Pg 11 is telling on their next move and how they plan to reduce the political backlash against the left and the right by increasing the number of contributors to both political parties. They also have a goal to increase the number of illegals (they use another term) and move law enforcement inland, lower regs and costs for trade across borders and increase globalization. Actually it says page 9 on the page but pg 11 on the reader. The following was on page 13 of the reader.it's not just Federal Government they want but state governments. Since U.S. states can amend their state constitutions, they have become frequent innovators within the United States system affecting what services are delivered and how (Katz 2003).When changes in trade flows affect jobs and economies, state, provincial and municipal leaders are often the first to react to these changes. This is one reason why U.S. states have taken the lead inreaching out to neighboring Canadian and Mexican jurisdictions to mitigate problems and leverage local advantages.Add all of these subnational governments together, and there are 97 governments with an important role in the governance of North American integration. It is not necessary to invent new institutions to improve public support for efforts .All three must be convinced that moving ahead as a block is preferable to going it alone and political leaders must once again be willing to concede national sovereignty in favor of a North American community. pg 22 We must also be realistic, recognizing that here are significant differences among the three. They want to stop duplicate testing in each country and get private labs to do the testing. Canada and Mexicodo nothave the same interests (except to preserve preferred access to the US market) and the US as the biggest market by far, has its own set of interests
and sensitivities.For this reason we propose a staged approach, beginning with sectors where there is already a high degree of market and product integration including autos, aerospace and meat Other areas will be more problematic. In government procurement, temp Other areas will be more problematic. In government procurement, temporary entry of workers, and intellectual property protection, our interests are not aligned and we are often competitors for investment from third markets. Nevertheless, the habit of consultation and the institutional and political underpinnings supporting this cooperation will lay the groundwork for future harmonization of regional trade. pg 23 Officials in all three countries have made concerted efforts to try to move security obligations away from the borders, and to focus on key trade corridors where the majority of cargo moves. If these efforts are successful,
the border of the future will serve as a data capture location supported by enforcement activity throughout the three countries. I say yeah bullshit. There would be no checks.hen it goes into DNA and fingerprint databases. There are 50 pages to this document. The government pays for this Hudson Institute.One claim in this document is to support TPP etc to combat China uneven trade leverage. Page 27 talks about the need to divorce citizenship from the right to work. It says so much more my head is exploding. More killer facts we have trade deficits with Canada and Mexico but the want more cheap labor. They also reccomended circumventing laws by using regulations to bypass Congress. I realize Hudson Institute is only one member of the Bilderberg but I found it interesting that Bilderberg claims it has nothing to do with policy making.

    Do you think the people behind the San Diego initiative are well-meaning people who think (as I do) that the nation state will inevitably decline in importance due to technology and increased global production? Or do you think there a few groups poised to gain from globalization who are pushing for policies to make it inevitable?

    As I read the quotes, it all sounds very reasonable to me. It sounds like they're saying there's more trade and specialization across borders and our institutions need to catch up with the fact of life. I am convinced of that, but I have no way to know if the people behind this initiative are honest or taking advantage of these global trends for personal gain.

      There were several things I read that bothered me. and some that seemed like a good idea. on page 22 of the document, it proposes far reaching governmental control under the name of "North America." It starts out that the north america police control would share amber alerts, national and international disaster information, and then-can unilaterally arrest and warrant for arrest citiens of the three nations. It also will share information and databases on identities and DNA database management and build up.
      As well, in the name of national/international disaster, require corporations to make available all skillsets and workers within their corporations so that in an "emergency" these groups of workers and companies can be tasked to to handle whichever "disaster" needs their skills. They say that companies have complained about wanting this information but then they go on to to include regulating these pools of workers and the companies' skills.
      They want to impliment a North America Bank. "One BanK" that all three nations can use and get loans from that have one North American set of criteria for all three nations. Same with educational opportunities. Tehy propose funding of "North American" schools to educate and train citizens from all three nations together.
      Tehy say Canada is the most resistent of the nations to these proposals, including their visa requirements for mexicans.
      One thing I did appreciate was more coordination between international borders and the urging of the White House to free up the Keystone Pipeline.
      but that's chilling. North American policing authority separate from our own government but recognized.

        I thought I captured everything, I missed that point about multinational law enforcement. . I'm glad you looked at it too. I was hoping someone else would read it. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. There is a bill my congressman is trying to push through Congress. It is supposed to make congress a part of signing off on trade agreements rather than letting just the president decide. I have to read the bill.

      the first couple paragraphs of the document are as follows: The San Diego Agenda came out of the North American Competitiveness and Innovation
      Conference (NACIC) held in San Diego October 27 29, 2013 where Canadian Trade Minister Ed Fast, Mexican Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo and U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker met to discuss “three countries, two borders, one economy.”Duncan Wood, Chris Sands and Laura Dawson provided the intellectual framework for the conference. Their vision of what North America our integrated economic foundation can become is brilliant. Malin Burnham, the co
      -chair of San Diego’s Smart Border Coalition,and I shameless ly appropriated their work in an op ed we wrote for the U - T San Diego newspaper (November 9, 2013) and renamed their recommendations “The San Diego.
      I see this as a group of people looking to sell America to make money.ew groups poised to gain from globalization who are pushing for policies to make it inevitable. They are promoting paying off politicians from a wide variety of areas so they do'nt suffer political backlash.

    The individual state(country) may well go away in the future. I won't happen in the foreseeable future because there is too much of a divide between countries culturally, economically, politically. Too much in almost every major category.
    In order to disintegrate the nation state boundaries the haves must be willing to allow the have nots grow and expand. To date there has been no rush to do this and won’t be for a long time.
    The view is “If I let the have not’s expand, there will be less for me.” A few not shared within the nation state, but is cast upon the outside world. The haves don’t want to share with anyone. The Have not's want a bigger share, most by working, some by taking.
    What does this have to do with the One Part system? Everything. There will always be a split in the public, always. Political parties will form and pass away, but there will always be dissention and multiple parties, sometimes two sometimes more but always multiple unless suppressed at the point of a gun. The spread of a single nation state is not likely unless and until the one part state is created..

      They are not trying to help the have nots to grow the paper states that labor costs in Mexico are slightly higher than labor in China. We have already been hearing about law enforcement being moved away from the borders. This is happening.
