Blog Created in order to Communicate with those who wish to Create a New Hong Kong in North America

I am glad to see there are others out there who think as I do. I have a simple, yet realistic plan to make a vast area of north America into a free trade zone, or "New Hong Kong". Those who have reached the idea that this is desirable are exactly right. Please, let me connect you with others who think as you do. Our sights are set on Alaska and the Yukon now, and there is a plan in place for expansion.
