Here's A Tidbit That Got No Attention From The Lamestream Media!

President NObama dispatched a delegation this week to The Hague to explore issues involving the United States' possible participation in the International Criminal Court, an organization critics charge could be used to prosecute Americans under international legal standards for actions that are not crimes in the U.S.

I'm sorry, but since when are our laws insufficient to identify crimes and establish suitable punishments for people who commit those crimes? Our system has worked well enough for over 200 years - dealing with everything from spitting on the sidewalk to mass murder. Where is the need to place a United States citizen under the auspices of an International Criminal Court? If a US citizen is in the UK, or France, or anywhere else in the world, and they commit a crime they are then subject to the laws and jurisdiction of the courts of that nation. Where is the need for an "International Court" of any kind? Are not the sovereign nations of the world capable of creating and enforcing their own laws? This appears to be another step bringing us closer to that One World Government. To that New World Order which the leftists in our midst so enjoy looking forward? International Court, Global Currency, European Union, NAFTA, open borders, government nationalizing giant corporations, bailouts, financial indebtedness to those who wish us nothing but failure, forced union membership for those who wish to work, government-controlled health care... surely I can't be the only person that sees a pattern here?

"The Obama administration would like the U.S. to be a party to the International Criminal Court," said Brett Schaefer, an international regulatory expert with the Heritage Foundation. "The Obama administration would like to establish closer ties with the ICC if it turns out the U. S. can join the court. The objective in dispatching that delegation is to address the major objections to the U. S. joining the court."

The court was introduced to the U.S. when President Bill Clinton signed the Rome Statute in 1998. But President George W. Bush pulled the U. S. out in 2003 over concerns that the ICC might prosecute American soldiers for war crime charges coming from the U. S. campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We have no need to be like the rest of the world!
Why would anybody want to emulate mediocrity? Until recently we have done quite nicely. Intrusive government is responsible
for our nation's financial disaster, issuing thousands of pages of regulations concerning the production and processing of things like lettuce, and forcing lending institutions to make loans to those who would not normally qualify for those loans. The only concerns of the government in the affairs of private business should be:

1. Is the working environment safe for the employees?
2. Is the product of that company legal?
3. Is it safe to use when the instructions are followed, or - in the case of foodstuffs - is it safe for human consumption?

That should be the extent of government involvement in private business. I can understand deeper involvement with those corporations that provide goods and services to the government, since the government is their customer and thereby entitled to specify the style and quality of product they want, and the conditions under which it will be produced - from design to delivery.
Beyond that, the government should have little control over private industry!

The path we are on today is unhealthy for "We the People". It is a path that returns us to the governmental tyranny against which our forefathers fought and died. It is a path that only has one destination if we do not create a fork in the road, for the government will surely not create such a fork. The single destination is one which hundreds of thousands of Americans have given their lives to help other nations avoid, and it is the left branch of that (presently non-existent) fork! There is no Constitutional protection at the end of that path, only subservience, severe taxation, poverty, and enslavement of a once-free people!
