    OH yes, the New World Order is still alive and well. Another ripoff scheme to steal money from the masses and put it in the hands of the wealthy. That will be the day some SOB outside the USA taxes me for anything like my personal banking.

    Soon, into a PC near and including you. They will eventually implement this, they know people are basically to 'into ' their personal 'comfort zones' and let crap like this sneak up on them, then they cry like babies. And if they have a hard time with it, they'll call Nancy Pelosi and her 'pals' and vote at night on a holiday weekend and pass it anyway. :lol:

    I fully support limiting our role in the UN. Things like this only make my stance stronger. These foreign organizations do not have our best interests in mind. I would also like to see us end our involvement with the WTO and IMF. Globalism/Internationalism is vastly over-rated. Unfortunately both the Socialists and NeoCons in this country fully support Globalism/Internationalism. We need real change in this country. Give the boot to all Socialists and NeoCons from both parties.

    This actually violates the general welfare clause because the government can only tax for the purpose of providing a common defense and providing for the general welfare. I assume that it is talking about the general welfare of the people of the United States not the entire world.

    I've thought the same thing. The United States can leave and its best interest would be served by that but there is a ton of what ifs that have to be considered. What if the UN body decides to war with us? What if the countries of the world vote to do something really nasty to us. We would have no recourse because we are not a part of that body any more. What we should do is think of a way to either dissolve the UN or render it powerless.

    The UN can't implement a tax on anybody who doesn't agree to it and I don't see this administration agreeing to something so politically risky.

    For once, we agree. There is no way that any Administration would try to pass this or try to get this approved without risking political suicide.

    If the UN wants money so badly, have a damn fundraiser.
