Had enough of the U.N.

December 19, 2013 

It should be clear that teaching Americans that we are now part of a global economy, and teaching school children they are citizens of the world, is a deceitful message to con us into a plan to add the poor countries around the earth to our list of welfare handout recipients.

The United Nations globalists have gathered for another conference to devise language to talk the United States into opening our treasury to the world. The U.S. is paying for all the ongoing U.N. shenanigans. We pay nearly $567 million a year while two dozen of the 193 U.N. members pay $1,000 or less, yet enjoy the same voting privileges. The U.N. calls it our historical responsibility to pay reparations in money and technology for our standard of living.

Do you know of anyone thanking the U.S. for the enormous support we are always ready to give when there is a catastrophe? Get involved. Write your representative, senator and even the president, and tell them to quit financing the U.N.
