Sections above Bolded and Italicized that are relative to the following sections of United Nations Millennium Declaration, General Assembly Resolution 55/2 (2000).

Article II

• To strengthen respect for the rule of law in international as in national affairs
and, in particular, to ensure compliance by Member States with the decisions
of the International Court of Justice, in compliance with the Charter of the
United Nations, in cases to which they are parties.
• To make the United Nations more effective in maintaining peace and security
by giving it the resources and tools it needs for conflict prevention, peaceful
resolution of disputes, peacekeeping, post-conflict peace-building and
reconstruction. In this context, we take note of the report of the Panel on
United Nations Peace Operations and request the General Assembly to
consider its recommendations expeditiously.
• To strengthen cooperation between the United Nations and regional
organizations, in accordance with the provisions of Chapter VIII of the
Charter.

arms control and disarmament and of international humanitarian law and
human rights law, and call upon all States to consider signing and ratifying the

Article IV

• To make every effort to ensure the entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol,
preferably by the tenth anniversary of the United Nations Conference on
Environment and Development in 2002, and to embark on the required
reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases.

(The United States (U.S.), although a signatory to the Kyoto Protocol, has neither ratified nor withdrawn from the Protocol. The signature alone is symbolic, as the Kyoto Protocol is non-binding on the United States unless ratified.)

Do you realize that the United States, as of 2006, carries 22% of the funding for the United Nations? And they want more monies to exercise these programs!

What else is happening behind the scenes?

North American Union? Read the whole site you'll be amazed at whats been transpiring secretly.

Security and Prosperity Partnership Of North America It has its own .gov site.

So tell me...is this fact or fiction? I want to hear your comments!

yeah, it is part of the socialist movement..and a vote for Obama is a vote towards one world government with the loss of our constitution and freedom

Thanks for compiling all of this information. I know it's fact, and I'm pretty scared. Among other things, I fear that our government is slowly weakening us to the point where we will be so dependent on other countries that we will be forced to surrender most if not all of our individual sovereignty.

@Guy I agree with you, but McCain is not any better. A change is needed, but it's up to us...the people...to let our Government know what we want.

I just find myself getting more and more scared every day. I don't know if I WANT to know where this country will be a year from now! I think drugs might be necessary. ;)
