A Real Election Choice On The United Nations
When Barack Obama said he’d like to “spread the wealth around,” he was widely understood to be talking about redistributing income within the U.S. But there’s another arena in which Obama fans are waiting impatiently for the promised wealth-spreading–the United Nations.
The danger here is not only graft and waste but the ease with which the U.N. collective, with its majority of nonfree member states, lends itself to support for dictatorships, money laundering and questionable transfers of technology and goods to rogue regimes (all of which emerged in investigations into both the U.N.’s 1996-2003 Oil-for-Food program in Iraq, and its more recent Cash-for-Kim scandal in North Korea).
Obama is promising upfront that by 2012 he’d be tossing at least $50 billion a year into this pit. If, as president, he signs onto the full U.N. program, the tab for American taxpayers over the next four years could total well over $300 billion.
Hmm, I see, this black woman must be a UN worker!! It’s the only logical explanation…
