WTF? More internationalist socialism from Obama!

I choose to live in America. I am free to leave at any time. I am free to move to Canada, Europe, back to Russia, or any other country, for that matter. When my parents fled the FSU to come to America, it wasn't because they flipped a coin, rolled the dice, or played roshambo and the US just happened to come up. They/we moved here because this was the freest country in the world; a capitalist system, a system and people that valued hard work, individuality, and fought for other's freedom because it was the right thing to do. Sure, it had its blemishes, turmoiled history, and it wasn't perfect, but there wasn't and still isn't another place like it in the world today.

I'll save you my theory about the world's best and brightest coming to America, leaving their former depraved, backward, and/or mediocre societies for a better life for their family and a chance to pursue the American Dream in all its glory. I won't go into anymore detail, but I believe it, and it doesn't surprise me that the US has been the strongest, richest nation for all these years. But all along, from its creation, the US has had a plethora of ideas and idealists, many naive idealists with the best intentions for "the greater good" [ick], who have lived here all of their lives with disdain for America's greatness, who worship the weak, the incompetent, and worst off, who care more about people half way around the globe, more than the future and well being of their own children.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present for the record, yet another move towards the socialization of America, by none other than Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., future Democratic presidential nominee. It's called the Global Poverty Act, and yes, it's OUR responsibility to solve he world's ills, which is hard to do when you are creating them, at least according to his friends in the UN.

It seems when he's not strong arming businesses into losing money, voting the most liberally in all of the senate, or receiving support from confused communists, he's out trying to force the US to give more handouts and entitlements to the undeserved and allow the UN to penalize the US financially for not accepting global legislation designed to weaken this country in the first place. Please remind me again, is he running for president or head of the UN?

For those that don't click on the links, I'll present a snapshot of what this new Global Poverty Act and the media that refuses to cover it is:

"32. We solemnly reaffirm, on this historic occasion, that the United Nations is the indispensable common house of the entire human family, through which we will seek to realize our universal aspirations for peace, cooperation and development. We therefore pledge our unstinting support for these common objectives and our determination to achieve them."

I think I need to puke.
