Words having meaning

When the Titanic sunk, the people who traveled on the ship could not believe that it was actually happening. After all, it had been sold to them as unsinkable since its unique design included several sealed compartments which would prevent it from sinking. Then, the unbelievable happened: the ship hit an iceberg in the most vulnerable area. The rest is history.
We don't know the rest of the story, however, about the goals of the United Nations. For years Americans have been told only part or bits of the story. Words which political leaders, both here and abroad have used, have not been defined for us. They have been used and like the story of the "King's New Clothes," people try not to show their ignorance by asking the obvious.
It is time to ask the obvious.
What are they saying in those rose-colored speeches at the United Nations and what does it mean for me?
It should cause all people concern to know that the United Nations is now shifting governmental responsibility to these new public-private partnerships, the details of which I discuss in my previous column, "The real implications of globalization." Before long, instead of seeing American corporations and various levels of American governmental entities in a partnership, you will see a further blending or integration with foreign corporations and local, state, county and federal government!
America is changing, and this is the change they don't want you to understand.
What is global governance? They say it is not world government, but it really is. A different form of world government than what we imagined with governments merging their power under one umbrella -- the United Nations. Adopting that phrase with public-private partnership, it is a broader form of "governance" because now they have shifted the power and responsibility to entities which have deep pockets: multinational and transnational corporations. Some day in the future in order to get out of global governance, instead of electing someone else to represent us (since that too will change), we will have to sell our stock in British Petroleum, ATT, TRW, 3M, AmericanExpress, CitiGroup, etc.
Lastly, what is another word for global governance? Fascism. When government marries business, a philosophical shift of greater proportions has just occurred. We have switched from free enterprise -- where every person is allowed to make a profit to one of great greed and control.
strengthening of the United Nations
Constance Morella, a Republican from Maryland, has introduced House Bill 4453 which calls for a United Nations Rapid Deployment Force and for 6,000 Americans soldiers to be unilaterally turned over to the United Nations. Along with seven other countries who have already signed a letter of intent to donate 6,000 of their soldiers, the U.N. is ready to add its own army. If countries are donating their soldiers, I imagine they will also be donating equipment, planes, conveyers, helicopters, etc.
Perhaps it is time to ask who the opposition to the United Nations is. Are they "nationalists," i.e. those who want their own country's constitution? Most Americans don't even know what "U.N." stands for, let alone strengthen and empower it to look, feel and act as a world governmental structure.
The ideas to strengthen the United Nations have long included a global tax and a people's parliament. These too were recommended by world leaders. The United Nations is being reinvented before our very eyes, before we have time to breathe! Teeth are being put into its structure to make it a very powerful world entity. How will we deal with this? What lifeline mechanisms do the American people have? They have their Second Amendment rights -- the right to bear arms. Our Forefathers thought of everything when they wrote our sacred Constitution. The goal and determination of Americans in this hour will determine who and what is saved. Ben Franklin replied to the little lady who asked him what sort of government the Founders had created.
"We have a republic, madam, if you can keep it," he replied.
Veon has done extensive research on the United Nations and the organization's
agenda and has attended dozens of U.N. conferences.
