John, the LaRouche comparison is out of line. In 2005, none less than the Council on Foreign Relations recommended the establishment of a “North American Community.” It relied on a March 2005 joint statement by Canada, Mexico and the U.S. that “our security and prosperity are mutually dependent and complementary.”
This is not a fringe. It’s a wave. It’s fine to disagree with Rep. Trancredo; it’s wrong to treat him like a lunatic when he is anything but.
