The United States has always enjoyed its uniqueness as a sovereign nation. Unlike the Magna Carta where the king granted some rights to the people, our Constitution granted specific rights to the government. The Framers did this because they knew, keenly, that our rights came from God and not from government. The tyrannies that our Founders suffered through led them to realize that governments existed to protect our God-given rights, not to dictate them or infringe upon them. And they further understood that we were entitled to sovereignty – or freedom from outside control.
The preamble to the Declaration of Independence is about dissolving ties with a tyrannical government but it is also about sovereignty. It sets the stage for one of the world’s most impressive documents. It says:
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with one another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God entitle them… (emphasis added)
A direct threat to sovereignty
Today the sovereignty that they pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to secure for us is now under fire. The fire that is destroying our rights and our liberties is subtle. It doesn’t flare out of control in an obvious way, drawing attention to itself for everyone to see. It is far more insidious and has stealthily crept in under our radar, like a ravenous cancer that is shaking the very foundations of this once sovereign nation. It uses phrases that are easily interpreted to sound innocuous and even beneficial; phrases like sustainability, or gun control, or environmental protection, or protecting the rights of the child. After all, who doesn’t want to preserve the environment, protect civilization from crazed shooters, or protect helpless children? But when the United Nations intervenes to “protect” us from these things, citizen beware!!! With their protection comes the surrender of our sovereignty as an independent nation and a free people. Let me properly define the word “protection.” When used by the U.N. protection means they control how we live and where we live, how we raise our children, and in the process they deprive us of our right to defend ourselves from their control. The insidious part is that they make it all look so attractive.
Since we are constitutionally bound to honor treaties that our government enters into, the submission of our sovereignty to this foreign body is tantamount to a plot to overthrow our government – and using our own Constitution to do it. Therefore, it is nothing less than treason!
The atrocities that our representatives have committed against our sovereignty in the name of globalization are stunning. They encompass U.N. Agenda 21, The U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. I will be doing a series of articles that addresses different aspects of each of these assaults against our sovereignty.
It is my great hope that this series will motivate us to stand together and fight while it is still day. Winston Churchill observed, “If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you with only a precarious chance of survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory at all, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
May God have mercy on these United States.
