RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Linked footnote no longer works. Find a replacement? That it a problem with using YouTube videos as references, as they tend to have little shelf life. Aboriginal Noise with 4 M's and a silent Q 03:28, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Found a replacement, easier than I thought. Aboriginal Noise with 4 M's and a silent Q 03:33, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Isn't the USA already a North American Union? - π 10:08, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

In and of itself, I suppose it is. Aboriginal Noise with 4 M's and a silent Q 11:49, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Originally a conservative position[edit]

Supposedly, the whole idea was proposed by a Canadian conservative, as a way to force Canada to be more conservative and free-trade oriented due to US influence. I don't have a link for this, though. Researcher (talk) 20:58, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Good idea[edit]

I think the European Union is a good idea, hence ipso facto a North American Union would be a good one too. That said, it's probably a couple of centuries away. At the moment, the US is too independent-minded for any such thing — its inevitable coming gradual decline (in relative if not absolute terms), will change its mind eventually. Unions in Central and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, are all going to happen before any North American Union will. (((Zack Martin))) 06:24, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

Canada and Mexico would have to hand over too much sovereignty, especially monetary, for an NAU. I'm probably much closer to the eurosceptic camp than most on this site, though. See this clusterfuck as for the reason why. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 06:34, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
The soverign debt crisis was part of the plan. The design of the Euro was never meant to work long-term, it was designed as what could be sold politically at the time, but with the understanding that some crisis would come along sooner or later and force deeper fiscal integration than anyone would have agreed to back then. Working as designed. As to monetary sovereignity, Ecuador and Montenegro both seem to be getting on OK without it; if anything, they are better off without it than they were with it.

There is already a North American Union. It's called the United States of America.--ZooGuard (talk) 06:43, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
Canada and Mexico are also federal states. So by that logic, there's not just already a North American Union, there's already three. Maybe the three could come together as one some day? :P (((Zack Martin))) 06:55, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

Best idea[edit]

This should in fact have a section explaining why this is actually a great idea and should be pursued, instead of feared (talk) 18:20, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

It kind of isn't a great idea (especially if you're Mexico or Canada), although I see what you mean. I mean, look at the EU. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but apart from the Schengen zone, it's taking a lot longer to get working effectively than anyone really expected. EVDebs (talk) 08:04, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Did you know that Snopes lied?[edit]


See this playlist? the NAU IS real. You guys, you need to get your heads out of the sand. Wake up. The new world oder is upon us, and you guys will be sent to FEMA Camps.--BnBn (talk) 15:33, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Oh shit, I just woke up, and I'm late for work! Why did I get a BnBn instead of an alarm clock? Ikanreed (talk) 15:43, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
I like his persistent misspelling of order as oder. You can never trust those rivers.--TiaC (talk) 21:59, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Wait, isn't Wikileaks a shill?[edit]


I thought they were hiding the REAL conspiracies. Why are they suddenly a great source? Better yet, they don't have the scary music YouTube videos have, so it should be obvious that they're tricking these guys into believing the NAU so they don't focus on the REAL problems.

I don't get these guys. My head hurts.--サトセレ (talk) 18:11, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Seriously, every conspiracy site is this hypocritical? What goes on in these peoples minds?--サトセレ (talk) 19:04, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

This article sucks[edit]

The North American Union is already here, as proven by the existence of mandatory trilingual labeling. I will be publishing an eBook on Amazon shortly detailing the history of the exact NWO/NAU regulations that laid the groundwork for, and forcibly imposed, these genocidal acts meant to destroy national sovereignty.--Кřěĵ (ṫåɬк) 11:16, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
