Sovereignty or Submission

One of our favorite scholars, John Fonte of the Hudson Institute, has written an important new book called Sovereignty or Submission: Will Americans Rule Themselves or Be Ruled by Others. That is, indeed, one of the most important questions American citizens must face how that Barack Obama is reelected and is eager to cut back drastically on our military and especially on our anti-missile defenses. Fonte's book sounds the alarm about the threat to American freedom and independence posed by the global governance movement. He describes the international elites who are so eager to put the sovereign decisions of democratic nations under the authority of international regulations and bodies answerable to nobody except the global bureaucrats. Pretending to go along with the theories of global governance enables the liberals and progressives in the United States to impose policies on the American people that could never pass Congress or State Legislatures.

John Fonte shows how our friends in Western Europe were coopted into relinquishing their sovereignty to what Margaret Thatcher called the "paper pushers in Brussels." She did her best to keep Britain out of the European Union, but global government is nevertheless marching ahead in Europe as the European democracies surrendered much of their sovereignty to the globalist lawyers and judges and the fiction of international law.

All UN treaties cut a piece out of our sovereignty. That includes the UN treaties on women, on the rights of the child, on guns, and on persons with disabilities. They all create a commission of so-called experts to monitor what is going on in our country and to order us to follow UN dictates. I urge you to read John Fonte's book Sovereignty or Submission and make the decision to vote only for public officials who will stand up for American sovereignty.
