Support U.S. sovereignty

After World War I, President Woodrow Wilson initiated the League of Nations, the forerunner of the United Nations. The U.N. may appear to have a noble cause. Who would suggest an organization whose goal is world peace could be dangerous?

Many politicians do more to promote a one-world government than to strengthen our country.

Look at what has happened to our country economically —free-trade agreements are destroying our revenue and increasing entitlement costs. When manufacturing jobs leave, taxpayers go on welfare. The middle class made strong by the manufacturing sector is fading. Middle-class people would never support free trade.

Once the world's economies are more aligned, global government is easier to implement.

The European Union is a small version of what is to come.

In every presidential election, both major parties give us a pro-free-trade nominee, even though government statistics indicate free trade increases the deficit.

We need to call our federal officials and demand a 28th constitutional amendment guaranteeing that the U.S. does not participate in any form of government, agreement or resolution that decreases U.S. sovereignty.
