It seems that Senator Obama is sponsoring a nice-sounding bill called the "Global Poverty Act" that is up for a Senate vote on Thursday and could result in the imposition of a global tax on the United States. The bill, which has the support of many liberal religious groups, makes levels of U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the United Nations.

If you were not aware of this situation, then I am glad that I could make you aware. If you were aware and have not written, e-mailed, and called your Senator to vote NO against this step toward the destruction of the sovereignty of the
It’s time to let all your friends know and help stop this bill, the "Global Poverty Act” (S.2433). It is also time to question if this man, Senator Barack Obama, is the type of individual we want leading this country.
