I am tired of giving my money for others to have. I work hard for my money and I want to keep it here in the United States, YOU DO NOT DESERVE TO RECEIVE ANYTHING, unless you contribute. WE cannot take care of the world, who doesn’t want to take care of themselves, period. We need to take care of our country before we go outside and spend our resources on others. The congress needs to go get a real job of earning their money instead of taking our money and living better then us. They don’t care, it is our money they are spending, not theirs………..God Bless America…….

This is simply a Bill to destroy U.S. sovereignty & install One World Government. We should be getting OUT of the UN, not subjugating ourselves to them by handing them our sovereignty along with our money. We know how the UN fat-cats partied on caviar & champaign as the genocide continued in Darfur! Poverty is better addressed thru private concerns such as World Vision… & on a VOLUNTARY basis thru charitable donations. Once a government agency is put in charge, the corruption begins… & good money is thrown after bad. We have NO obligation to create wealth in poor nations… such endeavors have served only to enrich the mightiest few while the populace suffers.

If all those in Congress give to charity like our VP elect did last year we would have a world of starving and unclothed needy.

I dont have a big vocabulary either but who cares.
In the words of the late great George Carlin “Power does what Power wants”. We(Americans) really dont mean anything to them anymore, if the last 8 years has not proven that; but I’m sure there’s more to come.

We are only teaching them what we have managed to do here. Work hard, fail a business, and the government will drop helicopters full of money on you. At least we can wipe our butts with it. The poor native in Kenya can chase down a gazelle, and feed the village. Mama went to the garden and picked the veggies. Junior musasa went to get the stone to grind the meal for the cornbread. They seem to be happy. They get by on $2 a day because THEY WANT TO!!! Leave their ass alone and let them live. Quit trying to shove our welfare dollars down their throats, so they can sharpen their spears and sling them back at the US. We seem to not have any problem finding the money to waste on all this, but we can’t find a few billion to help some businesses here because our no good crooks in DC don’t know anything about money mangement (at least mine). One thing though…when the time comes in this Country that YOU have to go out and get that gazelle and grind YOUR meal…..good luck….cause you cain’t have my conebread.

So how about we do what Government was designed for, protect our borders, stay out of my business and ne business of others, and let me manage my life as needed. UN, unneeded, oh United Nations, sorry, So when we fund them as well as the rest of the world, am I going to be able to get to work on a Horse or in a car. Depends on how bad the prices get at the pump. This Debate should not even be taking place. I do not want or need the Government to come and tell me how to live. You have to have morals to be a leader and a head of house hold not a neverending line of credit that is crap anyhow.Also I could care less what France has, if you like it so much move there live there and stay there, more room for people with insite on US soil them out site tering the inside apart. LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!!!!! plane and simple. And here is a fact for the one who likes to try and belittle people with words: The resion that some people can not dual or debate with there minds is that the Government would rather have a bunch of souless zombies (uneducated people) in there grasp as apposed to some one that thrives on education. And clinton started that with his administration. education has gone no were but down, all around the country. so here is the fix, get rid of this bill and you want a debate, debate this, .7 of all tax revinue that the US Gov. gets in US goes back to the public schools in america, people that would rather compare US to another nation and see were we lack then cool don’t bitch about it, come up with a solution and fix it.again if you want us to be France move there I will by you the Boat ride over. If you like the UN go live in a UN controlled Government.

You have to love the people who denigrate others based on something irrelevant, like choice of words, instead of coming up with an articulate counter-point. Seriously, if you disagree with another person’s comments, try stating some reason, substantiate your belief system with empirical evidence, use some fact. Otherwise, your attempt to marginalize another because they don’t have what you deem to be a sufficient vocabulary is obtuse at best.

If only Americans understood what Universal Health Care is really about. For one thing, can you name anything that the government manages that is not a total screw-up. I have relatives in Canada and they can tell you what Universal Health Care is, and believe me it’s not what I nor anyone I know want. Before Americans start screaming about what they don’t have, they need to do a little research to see what the people in these “government run” countries really have. And another thing, government run health care IS NOT FREE, the premiums are deducted from your check just like Federal, FICA, etc. taxes before you see them.

Wake up people, if you want to live in a socialist or communist country, then MOVE…

The easiest way to control the “people” is by putting them into poverty making them dependant on others for support- the easiest way to gain control on those who are barely self sufficient is to tax the hell out of them- FORCE them to take care of everyone else so their own needs fall short of their ability to provide, then the middle class disappears and all you have left is POOR while the filthy rich own us all with blood money.
That is their plan- make us ALL so poor we will depend on a new world government to wipe our butts from cradle to grave spy on us so we’re afraid to even think for ourselves.
I already pay so many taxes to support all those lazy illegal people living in my neighborhood who get free medical care, free education and free food on MY hard work. Then they work under the table for tax-free cash and send it all home to Mexico.
Over my dead body. My children will not be slaves, forced to work for the support of every Tom Dick & Harry with their hands out for a freebie while they drive 2008 model cars and can afford to have cable TV and take vacations while my car barely runs and I work so many hours I couldn’t afford TV or vacation if I even had time for it!

Obama is not a citizen, and has refused to prove he is because he is not. If the Supreme Court would rule that he is required to show proof, the Electors who will cast their votes on December will be forced to default the election or declare McCain/Palin the true winners by default.

The liberal news media is covering this up as can be expected of them which will make the Constitution nul and void. In other words, if Obama cannot show his original birth certificate (which should be from Kenya or Indonesia) he can never take office legally by the Constitution which states he must be a “natural born citizen” of the United States of America. He has known this from day one, which makes the election a sham, which is very obvious anyway. He is nothing but a very talented con man whose strings are pulled by Elitists who have been working at overthrowing this country for over 50 years. These are the major donors behind the money that over run the country with his mind controlling propaganda. The only hope this nation has now is to stop him from being inaugrated and clean out the liberals in Congress, including Pelosi and her gang and not to leave out the liberal republicans. There are a surprising number of conservative democrats still left in Congress but they are under control of the liberals. Not all are unamerican liberals.

I read some posts here that were asking God to help us. I think He was willing in 2000 when a born again Christian was barely inaugerated, but we stood back and watched as the liberal assasinated his character with lies, ridicule and accusations of treason, until they made him inaffective, although he was strong enough to actually survive as a much better President than given credit for.

But the people of God knew that it was a warning for us to honor His promise of 2 Chronicles 7:14 and we failed. So now it is 2008 and His final judgement on the nation has already started. Just as He allowed evil kings to rule over Israel to bring judgement over them, we are no different. We don’t need politicians, we need the Creator God. Obama must not be allowed to be inaugerated or we go down in defeat to the enemy within.

Well its interesting that you skipped the small arms confiscation. Do you stand in a position superior to our founding fathers. They understood the insidiousness of tyrany. That our country must be prepared to defend itself from the very government that pretends to protect it. Do you live in an idealistic bubble. Do you think dictators tell the people the truth when they are spewing their toxic babble.

Its all for your good. Have you read the books animal farm and 1984. Do you live in a plastic bubble with dancing unicorns that you can ride at will. The patriarch kennedy in WWII gave away the farm to hitler and did it stop him no.

A global party where everyone is equal, wake up from your sixties flashback drug haze. Dictators and our race sad as it is only knows force. We are animals who believe we have the ability to self rule, but were bad at it. Look at history.

If you let them take away our weapons then soon theyll take away our private property. After that they start executing all that disagree with them.

The funny thing is they usually start executing the intellectuals like yourself first.Remember that reality the next time you take a ride on your unicorn.

The article i just read on the french system was interesting. Their system is goverment run and guided. It says in the article that so long as we recognize the legitemate role of government in overseing the rules and the framework within which these actors operate.

In france the doctors earn 1/4 of that which they earn here. They strike because they are being treated unfairly by the government. There are striking disparities in the quality of healthcare in different regions. There are lists of hospitals delivering dangerous healthcare.

Do i know what the answer is no. But i know that i will never say that a freedom loving american can ever say that they recognize the legitemate role of government in overseeing anything. Our country is based on the individual and individual ownership, not in government control of private industry.

This country is falling to those who dont want to work and earn the money it takes to bring about change.Those so called educated elite who dont understand what it takes to create wealth, but still believe they understand how to spend it.

“Below denmark and sweden provide” well I sure feel bad about that; Don’t want to come in second or third we’ll all “feel” better; if we give up more power.

And hence we have the divide in America which will bring about bloodshed… the liberal canon “What’s yours is mine because I think I know the best way to use it”. Get a clue and stay outta our lives.. Just start this socialist crap, and piss on the constitution. and we’ll give you “change”. We are free Americans not bound to any u.n. covenant. No fat cat politician can give our sovereignty away. The people won’t allow it. Fauning Libby’s Want to help Africa? get rid of the meddling oppressive dictators and let democratic capitalism rule so they can make their own economy.most of our relief food aid gets hijacked by the govt soldiers before it gets to the starving villagers.

GUYS/GIRLS go to youtube and listen to clips by Max Keiser, Jim Rogers and Peter Schiff they will tell you what is really going down with the economic crisis. listen to all their clips. http://www.maxkeiser.com has an interview with Alex Jones that tells a LOT about the wall street crimes and who the NWO perps are that are in charge of this meltdown. (Goldman Sachs) also listen to pAT kILEY at http://www.patkiley.com his radio show is on Monday nights live for 1 hour. heard about this there. his shows are archived on his site, free signup and free archives. on the 11-17 show he covered how the govt ownership in banks will lead to demands that you as the mortgagee of a now govt. OWNED home or resident in a govt. OWNED mortgaged apartment complex will require you take a flu shot and/or not be allowed to own a firearm. you can guess that “not being able to buy” without the mark is not much farther down that road. also that show or the previous week he covered
the fact that the meltdown is intended to crash the dollar so the NAU can be implemented by 2010. North American Union. expect bank runs by Feb. i got a flyer 4 years ago from http://www.sovereignsociety.com
they predicted this crash in detail. they say they can offshore your money entirelly legally. pat kiley says the big boys make their from foreign currency deals. he offers similar deal. if you have a 401k you will lose it. if i had one, i would take it out as a loan right nopw and buy gold silver. regarding the NAU, EU, APEC, AFRICAN UNION, this quote from Joseph Stalin should clarify why they want these “unions”.

“Divide the world into regional groups as a transitional stage to world government. Populations will more readily abandon their national loyalties to a vague regional loyalty than they will for a world authority. Later the regions can be brought all the way into a single world dictatorship.”
- Joseph Stalin, Marxism and the National Question, 1942

now you know why Obama wouldn’t salute the flag for the Nation Anthem (search ‘obama explains’ on youtube, red background)

he wants the UN flag
think: why all the Will Smith as hero movies? preparation for a black leader?
think: Clinton bombed/invaded Yugoslavia from 1993 off & on til 1999.
EU ws formed in 1993, Euro dollar introduced 1999 (electronic version) then as paper coins in 2002.
now: we bombed/invaded Iraq since 2003, now there is talk of the Amero
being introduced. deadline for the NAU is 2010. you figure it out…

Pat Kiley and Glenn Beck, Alex Jones ect cover the NAU/UN takeover all the time.

i know a Bosnian girl. I told her we are in a deliberate financial crash to warn her. guess what, she already understood. she said they did the same thing to Bosnia (ect.) just before the war(s) there started.

meaning Goldman Sachs and friends probably cleaned the region out financially before they had Clinton and NATO sack and pillage it.
