And no, not this time. I’m not talking about Barack Obama, though he would almost certainly finish in the top five. I don’t know how Americans let ourselves be taken to the cleaners time after time. America is undeniably the most open-handed and generous nation that this globe has ever seen. We have held incalculable power with far more restraint than any civilization in history.
We’ve also been the world’s greatest saps. It’s a sad truth that the more people receive without expectation of repayment, the more resentful they become. The other sad irony is that these selfsame entities’ very existence would be highly questionable without the auspices of the United States and the generosity of our people.
The United Nations was formed in 1945 at the end of World War Two. It almost immediately began a shift to the left, as monies destined for the poor of the countries of the world was taken and used to fund fiefdoms and armies to support the strongmen that emerged in the third world.
The United Nations did a credible job in the Korean War, though the US and South Koreans carried most of the burden of executing the war. Since then, it’s been a steady decline into totalitarian conflict. Under the the UN’s supposed ‘protection’, tens of thousands of people have been slaughtered, raped and enslaved. Money and food shipments meant for starving people have disappeared completely, while UN security forces looked but didn’t see.
Why this great country permits this American-hating parasite to feed off of our citizens is a mystery that many of us would like answered. And now the UN looks to regulate internet use. We’d like to wish them good luck, because they’re going to need it.
This is just another vast power grab by a power-hungry and totally extra-legal organization that has more in common with terrorists than with the American people and the west.
