Have you heard the rumor of the "Amero?" My first exposure to the term was on C-SPAN. During his closing speech, Stan Jones, the Libertarian candidate for Montana Senator delivered the eyebrow-raising speech you may wish to watch below. I wonder if it will capture your interest as it did mine?
Pretty scary stuff huh? I thought so. But who is Stan Jones and what is this North American Union he speaks of? In his speech Stan Jones acknowledges he risks sounding like a Conspiracy Theorist by so much as mentioning topics like the NAU and the Amero because he knows the masses respond to such phrases with reflexes rather than higher thought. Let's take a more reasoned approach here and give him a listen, examine the available evidence, and just become better informed.

Why are people concerned about the Amero? There are those (Click here for Rob Kirby article) who believe that central banking, the Federal Reserve, is part of a patiently executed plan to rob Americans of their Constitution and place America under a one-world government.
