Beware the United Nations (and Greeks Bearing Gifts)

The Founders’ were suspicious of treaties between nations.  I doubt they could have foreseen the UN, but they certainly had experience with empires:

There is, perhaps, nothing more likely to disturb the tranquillity of nations than their being bound to mutual contributions for any common object that does not yield an equal and coincident benefit.

– Hamilton, Number 7

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.

Great friends own MacDonalds and we had great discussions them explaining to me benifits of Obama’s mandatory health care plan for employees and why it would be a good thing. After MacDonalds was the first to get Govt. permissions to opt out , my friends couldn’t explain why Govt wont give my company the chance to Opt out. Special interests??:)
