Texas Judge Claims Tax Raise Needed to Prevent Civil War if Obama is Reelected
A Texas judge suggested that Obama is conspiring with the UN to take over America.
Tom Head, a county judge in Lubbock, Texas, said “He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN, and what is going to happen when that happens?” Head asked. “I’m thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.”
Do not dismiss these comments as the bloviating of a small town, country judge. There is a growing sentiment in the country that the U.S. is conspiring with the UN to take away our sovereign rights.
In an article written by Evan McMorris-Santoro for Talking Points Memo, Santoro notes that “ In recent years, UN conspiracy theories have centered on the idea that the organization is trying to take away Americans’ rights — including the rights to bear arms, own property and raise kids the way parents see fit.”
He further notes that Mitt Romney has given credence to many conspiracy theories regarding the UN Romney has said, “Turning to the United Nations to tell us how to raise our kids, or whether we can have the Second Amendment rights that our Constitution gave us, I mean these, that is the wrong way to go, all right. Do not cede sovereignty, I’m happy to talk to people there, I’m not willing to give American sovereignty in any way shape or form to the United Nations or any other body, we are a free nation, we fought for freedom and independence, we’re going to keep freedom and independence.”
