Transnational Government?

Transnational government (i.e. the EU) doesn’t seem to be working out too well for Europe.  So I don’t like it when the UN reprimands the city of Sacramento, CA for not doing enough for its homeless people.  I like it even less when Russia and China lobby hard for the UN to create a new interntional body to regulate the Internet.  Let’s face it, if Russia and China think it’s a good idea, it’s probably scary as hell.  And speaking of Russia, did you hear that Putin is promising to expand Russia’s nuclear arsenal if he’s elected?

Russia’s armed forces will receive over 400 modern intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), more than 100 military spacecraft and over 2,300 new tanks within the next ten years, Prime Minister and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin said.

Meanwhile, Obama is talking about dramatically cutting the US nuclear arsenal.

Some days, I think that if we just had a President who could get domestic policy right (i.e. less policy, more freedom), international policy wouldn’t matter so much.  This isn’t turning out to be one of those days.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
