This is the comment I received from a patriot and liberty/sovereignty activist in Washington State who wrote his US Senator, Maria Cantwell:

I asked my “U.S. Senator” to defend our State and Constitution against the United Nations Agenda 21. Received the following typical Progressive BS form letter… But for God, We the People ARE ON OUR OWN!

Dear Mr. Brodhead,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the United Nations. I appreciate hearing your views on this important matter.

The U.S was one of the original four countries, along with China, the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union, to design the structure and purpose of the UN in 1944. The UN officially came into being on October 24, 1945 with 51 original member states and has now grown to include 189 countries. The main purpose of the United Nations is to provide a forum in which world leaders can peacefully resolve disputes and collectively address global challenges, such as environmental conservation, global poverty, and the spread of disease.

The United Nations is composed of two bodies, the General Assembly and the Security Council, and the U.S. is a permanent member of both. The General Assembly is the main deliberative organ of the United Nations. It is composed of representatives of all member states, each of which has one vote.

Although decisions by this body have important symbolic importance, as they are representative of world opinion, no decision of the General Assembly is legally binding on any government.

The Security Council has primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security in accordance with the principles and purposes of the UN. Under the UN Charter, the functions and powers of the Security Council include: investigating disputes, which might lead to international friction, recommending action to deal with an international threat to peace, calling on member nations to apply economic sanctions and other non-military actions to prevent or stop aggression, recommending military action, and recommending to the General Assembly the appointment of the Secretary-General. There are fifteen members of the Security Council – ten rotating members and five permanent members – the five permanent members, including the United States, have veto power over any decision made by the Security Council.

The U.S. veto means that no action can be taken without U.S. agreement. I am confident that U.S. sovereignty remains assured and undiluted by our participation in the United Nations. That said, it is important to note that our prominent position in the institution provides a valuable forum through which the United States can work multilaterally to peacefully affect positive global change and encourage stability through around the world.

I support efforts to ensure a continued active and productive role for the United States in the United Nations. Since October 24, 1945, America has served the United Nations with honor and distinction, and will continue to do so in the years to come.

Thank you again for contacting me to share your thoughts on this matter. You may also be interested in signing up for periodic updates for Washington State residents.

Maria Cantwell
United States Senator

I agree with Jeff – we’re on our own without God.  We asked Him to leave our schools in 1962.  He did.  Now we have metal detectors and drugs in the schools.  And I am not even counting the liberal propaganda the kids have to listen to (except in Texas!) regularly.

The ultimate solution is to get a great candidate to run against and beat Senator Cantwell when she is up for election.  I get these form letters every time I write or email my senator.  I have gotten real help from Rep. Cantor’s office.

Keep up the fight, Jeff.  You are right.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
