A state lawmaker in Utah has introduced a resolution encouraging the U.S. to withdraw from the
Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America and any other bilateral activity that would move
the country toward an EU-style continental merger.
Republican state Rep. Stephen Sandstrom introduced House Resolution 1 to the Utah legislature this
week after a similar measure passed the House last year by a 47-24 vote but was blocked by a Senate
committee just before the session’s close.
“I feel confident we will get this resolution passed this year,” Sandstrom told WND. “We learned a lot last
year about our opponents, and this year we are better prepared to anticipate their legislative moves to
The resolution reads in part: “The gradual creation of such a North American Union from a merger of
the United States, Mexico and Canada would be a direct threat to the United States Constitution and
the national independence of the United States and would imply an eventual end to national borders
within North America.”
In a speech given in Salt Lake City to the Utah Eagle Forum’s annual convention Jan. 19, Sandstrom
compared the move toward a North American Union to the stealth methodology used by corporate elite
to move Europe toward the European Union. The 50-year process began with the European Coal and
Steel Agreement in 1957.
“While the newspaper articles and reporters published the sequential events of European integration,
most people in the European Community nations thought, ‘Ho-hum ï¿½ no big deal,’” Sandstrom told
the Eagle Forum meeting. “As a matter of fact, the Europeans continued to sleep like Gulliver until they
were jolted awake when the euro replaced their national currencies.”
When the euro was introduced, Sandstrom explained, “fortunes were made and lost, savings were
devalued, prices and commodities were suddenly revalued, borders essentially evaporated and
individual countries could no longer control their own immigration laws.
“Even their national flags ï¿½ for which their ancestors had fought and died ï¿½ were slowly being
replaced by the flag of the European community, with its twelve golden stars on a blue background,” he
“When that happened, many political leaders and vast numbers of usurped citizens wanted to stop the
pan-European train and get off, but it was too late,” he said. “Too late, because they were part and
parcel of the European Union ï¿½ now and forever.”
Sandstrom explained he introduced H.R. 1 a second time because he wants to stop the forward
movement of the Security and Prosperity Partnership into a North American market, following the
European model in which economic integration inevitably led to political integration.

“Just as in the European market decades ago,” he told the Eagle Forum audience, “now there are both
official and ad hoc forces here in the U.S. that continually press for further integration and
harmonization at every opportunity.”
As evidence, Sandstrom cited the free flow of labor invited to the U.S. by the failure to secure the
border with Mexico, the push by the Bush administration to expand NAFTA and CAFTA by a series of
individual free trade agreements seeking to push open markets country by country ï¿½ first into Peru,
followed by Columbia and Panama ï¿½ and the bureaucratic trilateral working groups seeking under
SPP to integrate and harmonize U.S. administrative laws with those in Mexico and Canada.
“We cannot and will not tolerate ï¿½ not without a fight ï¿½ the tearing down of 232 years of sovereign
progress in which American has protected the etched-in-stone, under-God principles that were
bequeathed to us by our founding fathers,” he concluded.
According to tabulation on StopTheNau.org, 13 states have now passed similar resolutions opposing
the SPP and the movement toward a future North American Union.
Utah is among six states considering a resolution against the SPP.
As WND reported, Rep. Virgil Goode, R-Va., has introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives a
resolution expressing congressional opposition to construction of a NAFTA super highway system or
entry into a North American Union with Mexico and Canada.
Goode’s House Concurrent Resolution 40 currently has 43 bipartisan co-sponsors.
