President Obama used his final appearance at the UN Security Council to give a speech lauding globalism, saying that Americans should give up some freedom and submit to international governance.

Obama, making his eighth appearance at the UN, openly stated that in order to be more secure Americans need to give up some of their liberties

Obama outlined his belief that security for nations ultimately lies in global government institutions like the UN.

“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,” Obama said.
The president added that “powerful nations” like the United States must be prepared to give up autonomy in order to continue to prosper and realise security.

“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.” Obama declared.

His words provide a stark contrast to those of US founding father Benjamin Franklin who famously warned that “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

Obama admitted that their is massive resistance in the US and beyond to such globalism, but insisted that his belief in such a world order is the correct one.

“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…” Obama said

“We have to put our money where our mouths are.” he exclaimed.

Elsewhere during the speech Obama took blatant shots at the GOP nominee Donald Trump, saying that Trump stands against everything he believes in.

Obama denounced “aggressive nationalism” and warned that “crude populism” should not be allowed to prosper.

He also stated that physical barriers do not offer real security, saying “A nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself.”

Obama couched his advocation of all out globalism in a Utopian ideal of ‘integration’, intimating that advocating any other form of governance is backwards looking.

“I believe that at this moment we all face a choice,” Obama said. “We can choose to press forward with a better model of cooperation and integration or we can retreat into a world sharply divided and ultimately in conflict along age-old lines of nation and tribe and race and religion. I want to suggest to you today that we must go forward and not back.”

We don't need to give up any freedoms for the government to watch over us or protect us. I will never give up any of mine. The U.S. Must fight back at any attempts of socialist laws. The U.S. Has a choice, continue the same path as we had for the last 8 years or turn right, and try to steer away in a new direction.

Turning right as you say will only change social policy. The "Right" as far as politics go have been on the same track of Globalism as Left. Hell, didn't Bush senior just say he was voting for Hillary?

Screw Left/Right, I would be happy just having some politicians that weren't prone to whoring themselves out and just do their job following the Constitution.

Ha, Obama believes in a New World order!
Guess he's a conspiracy buff now too.

Give me liberty, or give me death!

We were forced to give it up during Bush's reign and most of America have become apathetic towards it. Look at Clinton and Trump supporters, none of them care their candidates voted for (Clinton) & LOVE Big Brother (Trump). We're doomed.

what I was referring to right is, not as in the Republicans, but steer into a different path. All politicians and businessmen are liars and thief's. Do I trust Hillary...No. Do I trust Trump...No. But what other options do we have. Maybe one of can run...

Amen, the same agenda is being pushed for everyone minus the candidates who the establishment weeded out.

Here is an idea, put it to a vote. If the people dont want it, it wouldnt work anyways.

You cant force this. If you do it will fail.

It must come from the people.

The reality is this crop of leaders are not fit to bring it. They only seek petty profits and crude control through sophistry and autocracy of a few.

They will ruin the promise of a united world.

There must be a reason, and the people have more reason not to trust our leaders.

Reveal the truth of human origins and contact with ET. That would do it. If its not real, then forget the issue until we are on the brink of extinction, and let us EARN OUR EXISTENCE.

Anything less will fail and seal our fate.

He's got a position reserved in the globalist international cabal, I'm sure.

BTW....Is "crude populism" anything like "basket of deplorables"?? Just wondering.

Obama is extremely dangerous right now.

Watch out for wild regulations and some E.O.s before Jan 20th.

He will makes things as difficult as possible for the next President regardless of who it is.

With him threatening to veto the 9/11 lawsuit bill, threatening and throwing government whistleblowers in jail, now he's pushing for American's to give up some of their freedoms, you really have to wonder whose side he's on? For someone who ran his campaign on government transparency, he's done nothing of the sort but pulled the wool over everyone's eyes who voted for him!

He should serve as a shining example to never trust political candidates. They're all liars.

This is the only election that matters. The last chance to defeat the globalists.

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it."
Thomas Jefferson

We would do well to heed this now, but, alas, I fear it's too late for the mass of the hedonistic narcissists.

Jefferson also said that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have.

There is nothing wrong with globalism IF the people want it.

This is what the globalists forget.

They ignore democracy at their peril.
