I came across this that I wrote at TDAXP in 2006:
Canadian provinces will be free join when/if if the Canadian Union breaks apart (I assume Quebec will go it alone). The Western provinces would be a nice addition. Anyways, unless federalism is strong at the time they might not want to join. A free trade and mutual defense pact with the UK would help grease the way. Maybe just let Special Ambassador Shatner work it all out.
Puerto Rico gets a chance to select statehood every 10 years. As Mexico prospers in USAv3, I think the vote outcomes will change.
Cuba would need at least a post-Castro generation before they would consider joining as USAv3. Cuba is small compared to Mexico, so the benefits will be smaller then when the MUS joins the USA. Attitudes would be a problem until a generation or so goes by. Early post-Castro: pull Cuba into NAFTA; deploy Peace Corp business/development vollenteers, and open up several American University extentions.
I am okay with Guyana eigther becoming a state or a comonwealth. The gains would be smaller then that of union with Mexico. Perhaps the small size of Guyana would make it an interesting test lab. The proximity to Venezulea might be a security problem.
Other candidates (once we have the process down with Mexico): Haiti, Dominican Republic, Guam, Bermuda, Jamaica.
The choices here are: The USA-ization of Mexico vs the Mexico-ization of the USA. Neigther is easy. The current way isn’t working. The Mexico-ization of the USA is not something I want. That leaves the USA-ization of Mexico.
The USA-ization remains the goal from my PoV.
It would seem with the Narco-4GW emerging in Mexico and with Silver Spoon Socialists and their usefull idiots looting US Wealth and Future Wealth, this would seem to be farther away then it was 2 years ago.
Maybe this is an opportunity.
I could get behind a political movements that has these things as tenets:
– Anti-Elites and Anti-Silver Spoon Socialism
– USA-ization of Mexico
– Too-Big-Tool-Fail treated instead as an Anti-Trust/ Forced Break-up issue
– Strong on Security
