Ron Paul 2008 › Issues › American Independence and Sovereignty


Campaign for President of the United States

Issue: American Independence and

I believe in being
friends and I like as much free travel as possible and I like free trade, but I
don’t like more government managements because it essentially protects big

So called free trade deals and world governmental organizations like the
International Criminal Court (ICC), NAFTA, GATT, WTO, and CAFTA are a threat to
our independence as a nation. They transfer power from our government to
unelected foreign elites.

The ICC wants to try our soldiers as war criminals. Both the WTO and CAFTA
could force Americans to get a doctor’s prescription to take herbs and vitamins.
Alternative treatments could be banned.

The WTO has forced Congress to change our laws, yet we still face trade wars.
Today, France is threatening to have U.S. goods taxed throughout Europe. If
anything, the WTO makes trade relations worse by giving foreign competitors a
new way to attack U.S. jobs.

NAFTA’s superhighway is just one part of a plan to erase the borders between
the U.S. and Mexico, called the North American Union. This spawn of powerful
special interests, would create a single nation out of Canada, the U.S. and
Mexico, with a new unelected bureaucracy and money system. Forget about
controlling immigration under this scheme.

And a free America, with limited, constitutional government, would be gone

Let’s not forget the UN. It wants to impose a direct tax on us. I
successfully fought this move in Congress last year, but if we are going to stop
ongoing attempts of this world government body to tax us, we will need
leadership from the White House.

We must withdraw from any organizations and trade deals that infringe upon
the freedom and independence of the United States of America.
