Obama's Bright Idea

Bad enough that a US Senator comes up with an idea to spend the American taxpayer's money according the UN but worse that this is the sort of person who might one day inhabit the Oval Office.

A nice-sounding bill called the “Global Poverty Act,” sponsored by Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Barack Obama, is up for a Senate vote on Thursday and could result in the imposition of a global tax on the United States. The bill, which has the support of many liberal religious groups, makes levels of U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the United Nations.

Got that? US Foreign Aid will be spent not how Congress wants, but how the UN wants. Your future President...?

The legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends. ...

I bet it never even occurs to these people that it isn't their money they're spending but the money of the American citizen. Bear in mind that $845 billion isn't going to come out of thin air, it's going to come out of your pocket.

This UN declaration is a socialist's wet-dream apparently-

In addition to seeking to eradicate poverty, that declaration commits nations to banning “small arms and light weapons” and ratifying a series of treaties, including the International Criminal Court Treaty, the Kyoto Protocol (global warming treaty), the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Barack Hussein Obama, subverting the Constitution one step at a time.

I understand now why Obama campaign staffers have a Cuban flag with Che Guevara's image on it in the office.

They aren't democrats. They're Usefulidiotariats.

Fair go mate, the US hasn't been paying its full monetary dues in membership to the UN for the past 32 years, so they DO owe it a fair bit of cash
