"Sovereignty is a predicate of self-government." -- Columnist George Will, May 29, 2005

Can you name your two U.S. senators? Your U.S. representative? The president of the United States? Your governor? These questions aren't difficult to answer for citizens politically active in our republic.

But can you name the secretariat of the World Trade Organization (WTO)? The director-general of the WTO? Can you name just one member of the WTO's 600-person staff? These questions are difficult to answer -� and that's just how the world's political elite want it. Moreover, they want the power to tell the various sovereign nations of the world what to do -� both internationally
and domestically.

(***The World Trade Organization was dumped on us without our being able to vote on it, as the citizens of France and Holland were permitted by their political leaders to vote on the European Union Constitution, which they rejected. The idea of foreigners dictating any laws to us ought to be unacceptable to us. - Lundb�k)

The U.S. Congress has already changed domestic tax law to "comply" with WTO rulings � not once, but twice! In addition, the 50 states will likely need to change their laws as well in order to "comply."

But these are just a few examples. Consider that the WTO has ruled against the United States 80% of the time. And what about the future? "It is possible that the WTO will force America to adopt the restrictive regulations of foods and dietary supplements endorsed by the UN's CODEX commission," warns Congressman Ron Paul. (In other words, the supplements you now take will be
available by prescription only and at a much higher cost.)

We say 10 years of the WTO is enough! Join Congressmen Ron Paul, John Duncan, John Hostettler, Walter Jones, James Sensenbrenner, and Tom Tancredo to get the United States out of the WTO. Urge your U.S. representative to vote "yes" on H.J. Res. 27. The vote will take place tomorrow night or Thursday morning.

We have an opportunity to say "no" to the WTO and "yes" to U.S. sovereignty. The vote will take place tomorrow or Thursday. Contact your U.S. representative today and then spread the word.
A chance to withdraw from the WTO comes only once every five years. Now is the time.
