According to the United States Constitution the people of the United States are a sovereign people, the States we live in are sovereign States, and the Republic we belong to (The United States) is a sovereign nation. But there are people in this country who seek to tear down our Constitution and give our National sovereignty (and by default our State and Individual sovereignty) away to the United Nations.
In an Op Ed report by Richard N. Haass, President of The Counsel on Foreign Relations (CFR), titled Sovereignty and Globalization Mr. Haass suggests that "Moreover, states must be prepared to cede some sovereignty to world bodies if the international system is to function...even if a particular decision requires that they alter a practice that is their sovereign right to carry out.." His examples of areas where we should be willing to do this, or have already done this include: Climate (Kyoto Protocol), Weapons, Human Rights, and International Trade (NATO). He sums it all up by saying, "Our notion of sovereignty must therefore be conditional, even contractual, rather than absolute." This report was published in February of 2007.
"The goal should be to redefine sovereignty for the era of globalization, to find a balance between a world of fully sovereign states and an international system of either world government or anarchy." This is a flat out attack on our Nation's sovereignty and would ultimately put our country under the control of a World Government (The U.N., NATO, IMF, and World Bank) that has already decided that strong countries like the United States should be required to fund and support less productive countries around the world. This would effectively create a world welfare state paid for by the citizens of wealthy nations by taxing the gross domestic product of our countries. In other words, we would be required to pay additional "WORLD TAXES" to The IMF in order to develop poor nations.
Other notable initiatives of the World Government include: Banning all small arms possessed by the citizens of The United States... Limits on the use of fossil fuels that drive our economy... Control of our trade regulations...etc. I'm not usually swayed by the NWO conspiracy theorists...I think the extrapolate events to the worst case scenario...but this is a real threat and the worst thing is the fact that our own government is paying attention to the CFR, G-20 and the U.N. and it is NOT listening to us. So, before you vote, check out your candidates position on globalization, the CFR, and the U.N. and the New World Order. Make no mistake about it...private groups The CFR, and The Trilateral Commission do exist and they do not respect the sovereignty, traditions and founding principles of our country. Our rights, as guaranteed by The Constitution of the United States, are of little importance to them.
