The discussion contained in the above link reflects a growing consensus that American politicians, particularly the next President of the United States and the U.S. Congress, must ensure that any further U.S. global integration with international institutions must be conditioned upon those international institutions adopting, implementing and enforcing U.S. constitutional/human rights principles. These principles which are found in the Articles of the U.S. Constitution, the Amendments of its accompanying Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence, include among others: 1) Adequate checks & balances / separation of powers/federalism; 2) Transparency of laws, regulations and standards; 3) The rule of law, NOT the rule by law (or the rule of men); 4) The public accountability of government officials at all levels; 5) Strong recognition and protection of natural exclusive private property rights, tangible as well as intangible; 6) No taxation or regulation without representation; and 7) Strong recognition and respect for individualism rather than communalism.
The U.S. Constitution, its accompanying Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence remain the only bulwark against the creeping international laws and bureaucratic institutions of the supranational global governance movement that seek to undermine the sovereignty of the world's remaining nation-states, including the United States. Since that movement endeavors to establish the primacy of the global 'public good' over the 'private good' and to attenuate private property rights and redistribute economic wealth for social purposes, it would behoove all Americans if we were to quickly become reacquainted with these founding documents and the European history (i.e., the Enlightenment Era) from which they arose.
