The Final Expression?

Although I didn't plan it, this post relates to the one immediately below it.

The inevitability of world government

Global governance is not the overthrow of the U.S. government by an invasion of blue-helmeted troops delivered on black helicopters. Global governance is the gradual expansion of international rules and regulations developed by unelected international bureaucrats and voluntarily accepted by the likes of the Clintons, Obama and a Democrat-led Congress.

Global governance is largely responsible for land-use policy in the United States. The wetland policy arises from the RAMSAR treaty. The Endangered Species Act arises from several U.N. treaties listed in the Act. The comprehensive planning laws arise from U.N. policies first adopted in 1976, and incorporated into Agenda 21. Government
control of all land use is established in the Convention on Biological Diversity. Even though this treaty has not yet been ratified, its provisions have been implemented through the Ecosystem Management Policy from the Clinton/Gore era.

Government control of energy use arises from the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change and its Kyoto Protocol. The U.N. Convention on the Law of the Seas not only gives the U.N. taxing authority, but the authority to control drilling and all use of resources under the seas.

This is the world the Democrats have pursued in the past and have announced they will pursue in the future.

I'm not saying - because I don't know - it is the final expression, but it is another attempt by men to establish themselves either in rebellion against, or without reference to, the Divine plans. And it will fail, although it may not at first appear that it will.

It is the people of the free world and the United States in particular who have the most to lose from this increasing government control, but we don't love our freedom.

No, we don't. What does a mother do if she sees someone trying to hurt her child? You will see the wrath of mom unleashed. Why? Because she loves her child. We protect what we love. And we should! Some things are worth fighting for, must be fought for if we are to find any worth in it. We, the people, having been handed our freedom, have put it up on a shelf somewhere collecting dust and the thieves are carrying it away. We don't even remember what it looks like.

Too bad, because it's not easy to get back. In fact, it's beyond hard. It takes blood to take back freedom, and the lives of many brave men and women. So take time this Memorial Day to think about the many who gave their lives for your freedom and those who give their lives - a living sacrifice - to protect your freedom.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

John Stuart Mill
English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873)

I stole that quote from Charming, Just Charming, so go read his Memorial Day post.
