Who Signed The ITU WCIT Treaty... And Who Didn’t
I wouldnt trust the UN to develop a bowling league let alone something as important as the Internet.
The UN wants to become the One World Government and are seeking to control anything that will further that goal. If you can control the Internet you can control the major source of news and information. If you control news and information you can basicly control world opinion.
One of the major problems with the UN is that it is coming to be dominated by authoritarian states (many of them Islamic states).
The UN desperately needs adult leadership. It is time to review and simplify the mission and funding of this out-of-control organization. At a minimum the USA should review its role in the funding and mission of the UN. Why are we punishing ourselves by enabling an organization that seeks to harm us? What are the cost/benefits ratios for all of the accomplishments of the UN?
The UN is dominated by non-democratic countries that we fund. Why?
This is really good news. I figured we would go along with it, given who is in the White House and the kind of people in his Administration.
Don’t get too excited yet.
Over my many years on this earth I’ve learned a very important fact:
Once any suggestion is taken up by any governmental body, regardless as to the hostility that arises from the voters, it will ALWAYS pass sometime in the future.
It’s just a matter of time.
A good place to compare Lincoln and Obama is in this FR article:
That's probably because he wants to sell our control to the Chinese for a couple trillion dollars to keep him afloat a bit longer.
That particular group of countries couldn't manage a hot dog stand, let alone any sort of high-tech operation.
True Ted Kennedy was a master of that game and the democrats keep that idea on page one of their play book.
