International governing bodies are littered with socialists and cultural degenerates. It is no wonder the American left wishes to elevate these issues to their natural allies at the U.N.
Writing in The Washington Times, Senators Inhofe and DeMint framed the big picture accurately. America’s founders, they explain, “sought to constrain our actions within the confines of the consent of the people.” That, however, is problematic for leftist elites who eschew good, old-fashioned American values. So they choose, as the senators explain, “to elevate authority wherever possible above democratic accountability.”
The victories on L.O.S.T. and the Arms Trade Treaty should be celebrated. A sustainable American sovereignty, however, requires Congress to end support for the U.N. and its affiliated agencies, which keep advocating initiatives that undermine our Constitution and our interests.
