Here is Obama at the U.N. calling for nations including the United States to give up "some freedom of action" in order to embrace world government stating that it will ultimately enhance security.
Just remember these famous words as you watch the video.....
"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." - Benjamin Franklin
During his U.N. speech, Obama advocated for giving up freedoms to achieve better security.
OBAMA: And we can only realize the promise of this institution’s founding to replace the ravages of war with cooperation if powerful nations like my own accept constraints. Sometimes I’m criticized in my own country for professing a belief in international norms and multilateral institutions, but I’m convinced in the long run giving up some freedom of action, not giving up our ability to protect ourselves or pursue our core interests but binding ourselves to international rules, over the long term, enhances our security.
