US sovereignty

There are those who think President Obama is hell bent on destroying the US as a superpower. I do not count myself as one of those individuals. For those that do, this article by Ben Stein will certainly not improve their opinion of the President. http://spectator.org/archives/2011/03/22/one-world-government-obama

    I have two thoughts on this. The second one I will expand on in a separate post.

    I agree that it is odd that there is no mention at all about the fact that O has begun military activity like this. One pertinent fact would be that as I recall a lot of MCs have been urging him to do this. But that is not Congress and it is their authority (war) which is at issue.

    The other thought is that I believe that we have to dial back our participation in this kind of thing in recognition of our real economic power. When we do that there will be all sorts of howling about how we are abandoning our "role" in the world. For example what I have heard so far is: "Obama has made Sarkozy the leader of the free world."
