"Whereas it has been proposed that the United States of America
become a part of a world federal government; and ...
this program...would entail the surrender of our national sovereignty
and...bring into being a form of government whose authority would
supercede that of the Constitution of The United States Government; and
...institute a system of laws where-by American citizens
could be tried by aliens in controversion of the provisions
of the Constitution of the United States; and
...the Veterans of Foreign Wars is composed solely of men who have worn
the uniform of the United States on foreign shores and in hostile waters
in time of war and from their personal experiences
are familiar with the traditions and operations of other countries; and
...many of our comrades rest forever in foreign soil and
their sacrifices were made to retain the dignity
and sovereignty of the United States of America:
Now therefore, be it Resolved by the Fiftieth Annual Convention
of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States,
That we hereby declare that we are unalterably opposed
to any program which would entail the surrender of any part
of the sovereignty of the United States of America
in favor of a world government..."

You have in this organization men, decorated soldiers of world war two, who swears by the United Nations. Their excuse is the United Nations is a peace keeping organization, oh how ignorant they are, as most of this nation is. God help this nation.

    They, by this statement, are also testosterone posioned cowboys... as abused by the war experience as those who died in the concentration camps... more proof that war harms all who come in contact with it, both "victor" and "vanguished".

    I am not a member of the VFW but am a retired Naval officer. I agree that we, as a nation must never subject our sovereignty or our Constitution to any world body. As it is, the United Nations seems "hell bent" on destroying the United States.

    Well folks, I am both a veteran of 3 wars having served on 3 continents besides our home, and I am also a Life Member of the VFW, so let me reinforce Resolution number 27. Other countries look to us to see how practical liberty works, and many shy away because of the robust personal$ commitment it requires, much preferring the safety of the governed masses. Testoseone-poisoned cowboy, eh Reston? You are a worthless piece of slime. You are unfit and unworthy to be a citizen of our Republic You need to leave the US, hell you are probably a French national anyway, you puke. And I use my real name ad locaion,becase I am not afraid to defend my position ormy country you pansy!!

    I am in the VFW. Served 3 1/2 years including Korea in mid sixties. I served with Koreans, Brits, Turks and Thais. Have visited UN Village and Panmounjom. Many American policies have been advanced with the assistance of the United Nations. I agree with Lincoln if you will allow me to paraphrase "A World divided against itself cannot stand." Individualism and brotherhood forever. Most VFW members believe what we fought and/or served for was freedom: speech, worship, etcetera. This VFW Resolution was written in 1949 the UN was a couple of years old. I wonder what the history of it was and what the VFW positions on the UN are now. The UN has helped tremendously with "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq, nuclear weapons issues in N. Korea and Iran. Where the hell would we be without the United Nations.

    I say that ANY national organization be it the VFW, NRA, NAR, ABA, AMA, ABA, American Legion, Girl Scouts, NAACP or whatever has the power to wreck Bush's New World Odor by teaching members and non members that the dollar is still by law, a measure of silver, taxes cannot be paid with checks, money orders or with dollar bills that the IRS said "are not dollars" and that no branch of government pays dollars of money to anyone which is slavery and Lincoln's contemporary, Horace Greeley said Loncoln's greenback system is "no less cruel than te old system of chatel slavery." For a few men to control the world with inflation, fear, lies, illusions, disease and endless amusements that inhibit serious thinking, the majority must not know that we are controlled, inflation is bank credit, government has no need for REAL taxation as long as the majority falsely believe we are paid with checks and as long as the majority will ridicule and punish the few who want God's Laws and the Constitution upheld. The New World Order is a collectivist world order that requires organizing the majority into groups, then by intimidating the leaders of groups, they will control the groups. Whereas the original Constitution never required us to do anything nor forbid us to do anything and it proscribed democracy in Art.4, Sec.4, the VFW and American Legion are both subversive in their promoting democracy, promoting an amendment that forbids flag burning and failing to tell members that the ten planks of Marx's Communist Manifesto were all enforced here by bankers, lawyers, judges, journalists et al BEFORE we lost 110,000 of our best in Asia under the pretext of "halting communist expansion." The Girl Scouts and other collectivised feminists promote Marx's 8th plank as the Equal Rights Amentment that if ratified would give women the same right to avoid conscription that men have, NONE! That plank calls for "Equal Liability of all to labor." While the National Treasury Employees Union has been for ten years, telling the world that fluoride is killing people, NONE of the organizations above are doing so and I believe none are warning us or their members about the hazards of cow's milk, aspartame, alum. canola, chlorine or MSG This is a nation of jet propelled, air conditioned slaves who are amused, confused, defused, diseased, divided and conquered as well as indoctrinated, intimidated, regulated, interrogated, incarcerated, vaccinated and decimated.

    I am anti-NWO. The Bushites, Rothchilds, Rockefeller, Bilderburgs, & the wealthy Globalist elitist fashist United Nations are anti-YHWH. Contrary to GWBush, the Constitution is not just a **** piece of paper as it was based on Indigenous Native tribal structure. GW Bush needs to renounce his ties to Skull & Bones. The Communist Manifesto mindset has got to go! I believe in the rights & freedoms of the USA. YHWH`s Soverign Nation ONE NATION under YHWH is what this country was founded on. The NWO will be destroyed by YHWH / Yeshua at His coming as told in Holy Scriptures, in Daniel & Revelation.The NWO elitists will be hiding from YHWH in rocks & caves, because of YHWH`s judgements for their rebellion against the ALMIGHTY YHWH. The Promised land belongs to descendants of Israel, not Ishmaelites, or Palestinians. No "replacement theology", Christians did not "replace" Y`israel, they were grafted into the vine -Yeshua, & anyone who divides YHWH`s Promised Land will be cut into ribbons. YHWH told the Israelites to destroy all Philistines, they did not eradicate them all, & have Palestinian problem today as a result. USA`s leaders are bringing YHWH`s judgement on USA land. Three days after GW Bush had Israel`s leader PM Sharon remove the last 8,000 rightful Hebrew from the Gaza Strip, YHWH judged USA with Katrina. GW Bush`s "Roadmap to Peace", is actually "Roadmap to Armageddon". Those who bless Israel will be blessed, & those who curse Israel will be cursed. We need to stand united against Global Elitist mindset, we need honest YHWH fearing leaders to replace corrupt leaders. Restore the Holy Scripture to USA Govt. & schools, & homes & YHWH`s ruling, not fallen man`s ruling. Restore the 10 Commandments given to Moshe, & the 12 tribes of Israel. RESTORE SANITY, YHWH is against infanticide / abortion, & judged Sodom & Gomorrah for homosexuality. YHWH`s rules! REPENTANCE & REVIVAL is what the next National Day of Prayer should be about. II Chronicles 7:14 IF MY PEOPLE WHICH ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, SHALL HUMBLE THEMSELVES & PRAY, & SEEK MY FACE, & TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS; THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN, & WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN, & WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.

    War is Hell and Bleeding Hearts soon die. Nonintervention is a very good policy, but, when called upon by so many around the world for help in one manner or another, the outcome is a mess when tying the hands of our warriors on the battle field. If one finds garbage on the field, DO NOT BRING IT BACK HOME. LESSON LEARNED. The UN is a MOB, siding with their majority and bias. The Individual Sovereign is the Foundation of this Nation and our Republic, One Nation under our God. Many do not know or care who he is. Well, when dealing with nations we find God is a separatist to ensure his Sovereignty granted is maintained !! Adults are now in the Round Room, children need to shut up, buck up, stand up and pay attention. The games are over. Cleaning house has begun ! Who is this with the " Golden Splendor " the protector of the " Glory of Sovereignty." Khavarenah, the power projected upon and aiding the appointed. Divine Royal Glory, secondary meaning of Good. " Whose Reign is Through Truth." Semper Fi

    The establishment of a One World State would be the ultimate monument to the failure of the constituents of the human race to apprehend what is the sublime character of the birthright that has been bequeathed to them, and would constitute a felonious abdication by them of their solemn obligation to rightly govern themselves as noble Sovereign Individuals.
