    I say no to funding the rest of the world and no more aid to any country.

    From a Native American living on the Navajo Nation:
    I am glad to see that all that your forefathers fought and scarificed for crumbling before your eyes….the content of the emails is ample proof enough. United States barely going get past a couple hundred years before she is brought down from within. The Navajo Nation on a military reservation (not Indian Reservation) is still living under treaty conditions is ample proof that these institutions you call your home/lifestyle will fall because of the way you treat humans within your own borders let alone the world. Your founding fathers spelled it out perfectly for you:…..“The man who trades freedom for security does not deserve nor will he ever receive either.”
    Benjamin Franklin.

    “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”
    Thomas Jefferson, our 3rd President

    Any time a World Bank or IMF have anything to do with your money you will be brought into slavery at a level you will understand…..to have them even mentioned in the Bill is a clear sign that they will reap untold profits from the mere fact that you are going to let them in the door. US monetary system is in the flux it is in because of what Thomas Jefferson has said. So their you have it…I am quite sure our people will still be here long after you have destroyed yourselfs. I wouldnt hope for such things but given the remarks in this disscussion of this Bill the sooner you do it to yourselfs the better.

    Another giveaway program by the politicians of the US. This year I worked 4.5 – 5.0 months of the year to pay my fed, state, county, and city taxes. If we continue down the path, it will only be a couple years and the working sitizens of the Us will be working 10-11 months of each year to subsidize the stupidity of the politicians of the UN, the world, and the US.

    This Bill is Anti-American. It NEEDS to be voted DOWN. It VIOLATES the Constitution of The Unoted States. Americans need to be able to defend themselves from an opressive Government, which appears to be raising it`s ugly head since the presidential election results.

  • ricks55 11/22/2008 6:31pm

    I believe the UN is the BIG problem here, WE give, they take, and keep for them selfs.
    Why should the US tax payer provide for the whole world. The UN takes for them selfs 1st, stuff their pockets 2ed, and then steals what’s left. The US tax payer has had enough, we give when asked, we give in all natural disasters world wide, and now they want to take from us to bring everyone else up, B.S.. We should tell the UN to straighten up or out you go. I’m sure some 3rd world country would enjoy the economic boot the UN would bring when we kick them out of the USA,(we could solve our national debt if the Diplomats just paid their parking tickets), Why should the US TAX PAYER be forced to make some PRICKTATOR a billionaire. ENOUGH

    The 850 billion comes from the Millineum Development goals itself which this bill says the US must meet.

    “A bill to require the President to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the United States foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide, between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day.”

    2002 Implementation of the United Nations Millennium Declaration, p. 10, section 50 states the US must give 0.7 of its GNP to this which equals approximately $850 billion over 10 years:

    “Only five countries met the 0.7
    per cent target in 2001 — with one (Denmark) giving
    as much as 1 per cent of its GNP — while others gave
    as little as 0.1 per cent. The announcements made at
    Monterrey would lead to an increase of at least US$ 12
    billion per year by 2006. This is an important step but
    it still falls far short of the additional US$ 50 billion
    needed to give developing countries a fair chance of
    meeting the Millennium development goals.”

    The simple fact is that the Constitution of the United States does not say anywhere that we need to support the poor of the world. All of the laws of this nation are supposed to be based on the Constitution. I have been working in law enforcement for over 24 years. When I took my oath, it was to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. If the United Nations tries to trump the Constitution, then it has become an enemey. Obviously, I do not recognize the United Nations as an authority over the United States of America. Another thing, I think it’s a disgrace to see our Untied States soldiers wearing United Nations patches on their uniforms.

    The United States was formed as an independent country where the people of this country rejected the rule of foreign powers. I will guarentee you this, the people of the United States will not give up their sovergnty (North American Union??). We are not Europeans, we are not Africans, we are Americans. We need to stop calling ourselves African Americans, Asian Americans, European Americans…we are Americans and we fought for that distinction! If it wasn’t for the United States of America, the Germans, Russians, French, Japaneese, Chineese, or Babalonians would have established an empire/dynasty much like the Greeks and Romans. Some say we have established an empire. The truth is that we have established a legacy of hope for the people living in depressed nations. In providing that example of hope, we should not provide an example of foolishness and bring about our own downfall by thinking we can feed and support all the worlds poor. Another fact that media and politicians hate to admit is that if you send money to the United Nations or poor governments, they keep the money making themselves rich (lining their pockets with our sweat-Kopeemann!).

    We already have our fair share of crime, poverty, and internal issues…we don’t need to over extend ourselves. We’re not being selfish when we don’t want to support everyone and everything, we being practical…read the Constitution of the United States…before it’s too late!

  • qintar2 11/24/2008 9:34am

    No to bill S2433. I have a feeling that in the next 4 years we will be one of the countries that will be asking for aid from the UN. We’re al
    ready starting to feel like a third world country.

    I agree charity should begin at home, Would these people care about us ?
    Most of these starving over populated countries just need birth control, Sterlization and abortion, that would slow down the over population, and help them take care of their selves. Our government needs to first care for the country threy were elected to protect

  • gregn1 11/29/2008 1:10pm

    To-“anonymous” Nov. 25 2008. I have no clue what definition you are using to determine these racists. People of many colors are against this bill. When the U.S. is in a position to supply prosperity to the rest of the world, fine. However, currently we cannot pay back the loans we have outstanding with other countries let alone fix the entire worlds financial problems. It has absolutely nothing to do with race, it has everything to do with the fact we are broke. If you add up all the taxes we pay it’s closing in on half of what we make. How much more of your hard earned money are you willing to give to the government to solve all the worlds problems when they can’t even solve some of the most basic ones here? We still have hunger, poverty, sickness. Hasn’t our government already pledged to eliminate all of these things? Obviously, you are not one of the people who is contributing to the money involved. Could it be that you are just one of the way too many holding out your hand to get “your piece of the pie”, and not struggling to get by like the rest of us. Why does the U.S. have to take the role of savior of the world.

  • Anonymous 11/30/2008 3:41am

    Until we take care of the United States of America, how in the hell are we expected to continue to hand out money to help all these other countries. We are on a fast track to becoming one of these Third World countries that the Liberals are all in favor of saving? Who do you think is going to come to our aid when we become a Third World country? That’s right, nobody! As stated in posts before this one, there are many, many people in other countries that are looking forward to the demise of the United States. This Bill will do nothing but insure of demise takes the fast track. God Bless America, because we certainly need it!

  • Wordsmith1218 11/30/2008 7:27am

    S.2433 is simply good international policy; defining the U.S. commitment to a strategic global community and making a stronger effort toward a better informed people worldwide. Only through education and the lessening of poverty can we – as a free world – defeat the ignornace of terrorism and dictatorial hegemony. Creating wealth creates and promotes freedom and once this wealth is either denied or threatened will those rise against the dominance of an oppressive nation or society. S2433 was agreed upon nearly nine years ago, a US and UN supported statement that would work toward the end of global poverty by the year 2015 – America must honor the integrity of these commitments and demonstrate genuine leadership in this world.

    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.

    Mark Twain said Foreign Aid is when money from poor people in rich countries goes to rich people in poor countries. We have sent money to Africa thru foreign aid and charities for as long as I can remember. Do you see any difference in their poor?

    “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.

    Been trying to warn about this for months, before Obama got rammed down the throat of America only to get trashed by liberal nuts. So now what to do?

  • Anonymous 12/01/2008 6:37pm

    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.

  • Anonymous 12/02/2008 9:06am

    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!
    God save us from our oppressors.

    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.
