    I thought since we debate, divide, become frustrated, angry, send ungodly PMs', call others liars and such we could look at what God has done and be thankful, awed, and United

    Since we are from all over the United States I figured that we would see something in this video that is familiar to us.

    Wonder how much of that landscape is now under the control of the United Nations?

    United States of America

    Across this great land, our national parks, wildlands, forests, and lakes are being turned over to UN control. Joseph Urso, Jr., a friend of the ministry who hails from Knoxville, Tennessee, recently sent me a photograph of the entrance sign of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Notice the telling phrase on the sign: "AN INTERNATIONAL BIOSPHERE RESERVE."

    This means that, under the United Nations Biodiversity Treaty, a precious resource_owned by American citizens for over 200 years_has been turned over to the UN's bureaucrats for control. Yes, you and I will continue to pay taxes for the maintenance and upkeep of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. But we no longer own it. Now, the UN has ultimate jurisdiction. This alone is startling evidence that the once independent nation-state known as the United States of America is going out with a whimper and not a bang. Our sovereignty is coming to an end.

    As a consequence, across the U.S.A., our parks and wilderness areas are slowly being closed to the public. Roads inside the parks are being grazed over. Mountain passes and hiking paths are being blockaded. "No fishing," "No hunting," "No trespassing" signs are being erected everywhere on public lands. Entrance fees are being jacked up 100%, even 500% higher, to keep American families out of their own lands.

    Thanks very much, RM. That was beautiful and stirring. I've heard a couple of pieces, one by Charlie Daniels, another older one by John Wayne, a narration titled "My Beautiful America" describing the beauties of our country with "America the Beautiful" played as background. I still get tears when I hear them both.

    America is indeed a beautiful lady.
