Building a North American Community
Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
Task Force Report No. 53
Should Fred Thompson enter the 2008 presidential race, he would become the fifth member of the globalist, NWO's Council on Foreign Relations to do so, joining fellow CFR-members, US Senator John McCain, (former VA) Gov. Jim Gilmore, (NM) Gov. Bill Richardson, and US Senator Chris Dodd. Furthermore, former US House Speaker Newt Gingrich, also a member of the CFR, is also considering entering the presidential race later this Fall (perhaps if enough conservatives don't take the bait and swallow the lie that globalist, First Amendment free-speech enemy Fred Thompson is a "conservative").

Fred Thompson Vs. Ron Paul
Friday, June 01, 2007 - FreeMarketNews.com
Is it true that Fred Dalton Thompson, former republican senator from Tennessee and current actor is seen by GOP leaders as a "Ron Paul" vote killer? If so, the rhetoric may not match the facts, political observers say.
Thompson has indicated he will likely join the race for the GOP nomination for president in June. And in doing so, he will bring a perspective that he and his followers describe as "small government conservative and federalist" - much like Ron Paul's.
Ron Paul (R-Tex), congressman and republican candidate for president has been seen by Internet observers as doing well both in debates and in terms of public sentiment. His message is one of minimalist government, low taxes and a non-aggressive military policy.
But Thompson's record gives rise to questions about his small government and "federalist" credentials. Leaving aside the argument as to whether "federalist" is a "synonym" for small government, Thompson's credentials as such still seem questionable, according to some observers of both campaigns. Because Thompson has spent much of his life as a public figure, his voting record is easily available at Wikepedia.com and from other 'Net sources.
While in congress, Thompson, reportedly a good friend of Senator John McCain, (R-AZ) supported two obviously anti-free market bills: the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform act and the Shays-Meehan bill restricting issue ads. He is also a member of Council on Foreign Relations, a main think-tank behind the idea of a North American Union that would eventually dissolve borders between Mexico, Canada and the United States to create one big super-nation. Thompson also seems to believe in a robust military presence worldwide and apparently advocates continued US military involvement in Iraq.
Ron Paul's "small government" credentials extend beyond rhetoric, and even the many editorials and position papers he has authored. Ron Paul has consistently voted a "constitutionalist" line in congress, and thus his actions match his sentiments. He is neither a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, nor any other Washington think tank that advocates similar views.
