Thomas Jefferson said: "Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none..."
The United Nations started out as a place where nations would get together and discuss their differences. That has changed.
The United States was playing by U.N. rules and failed to win the Korean war. If we had operated on our own we could have eliminated the communists there and won the war. However, they were allowed to survive and to this day the issue has not been solved. Adding to this problem, North Korea's greatest ally, Red China, was also allowed to take root and grow.
As a result of the U.N. failure, North Korea and China are the two biggest threats to world peace today. Can the U.N. be reformed? The answer is a resounding no! When the U.N. talks about reform, it is talking about a stronger U.N., global governance with a world in which there are no borders, a common currency, one standing army, one body that speaks for everyone.
That means no nations, no religion, no possessions, no individual rights. Is this what we want for our country? Well, like it or not, believe it or not, it is coming. Actually it is well on its way. The aim is to redistribute international wealth and power to the Third World and into the hands of a global bureaucracy, to oversee it all.
The U.N would control everything -- the timber industry, emissions, redistribution of wealth, global taxes, birth control, 50 percent of the land, urban development, school books, courts of law, immigration, and on and on.
If we accept this U.N. plan we will be agreeing to the destruction of the very system that gave the world the highest standard of living and the greatest freedom the world has ever known. Only you can prevent it, but time is running out.
We must get out of this corrupt organization, now!
Call your congressman and ask him or her to support, sponsor and vote for H.R. 1017, legislation by Congressman Ron Paul.
