The answer to your entire post is...... Yes. It's all about globalization. The Bildebergers have been busy. The reasons they give for this being such a fabulous idea, the trade/prosperity scenario, is nothing but a smokescreen. This is one giant step for our enslavement. The North American Union is next with the same agenda. And the agenda is enslavement for all.
Yes, I did see that debate with Ron Paul that you mentioned. And it's no laughing matter.
