When an American Leader seeks World Unity/Peace why does it divide it's own country?

    The country is pretty well divided before any President tries to do almost anything. Seeking peace, while laudable, has to be considered in its context. For an extreme example, our president could say we are going to disband and disarm all our armed forces. We do not wish to fight anyone and being disarmed, nobody should wish to fight with us. Of course that example is foolishness, but there are degrees in between. Obama is suggesting that we relinquish sovereignty in our own economy and giving instead to the EEC. Such a plan is not only ill conceived, it is putting our national security at risk.

    Seeking peace and unity are lofty goals, but they must be achieved in a reasonable way if they are to be meaningful and lasting. Many of us feel that what Obama suggests at the G20 would make the United states even more vulnerable, economically, than we already are.

    Because he is doing it at the expense of our Constitution and individual sovereignty. Some folks really have a problem with that! World peace and unity isn't worth the paper it's printed it on if it nullifies our birth rights and puts us in the hands of UN regulation and international bankers.

    Because usually that means he has to put down his people in order for him to get applause on foreign soil.

    Begging on your knees with your mouth WIDE open is pathetic. -He apologized for my country? Well I am embarrassed of him, truly mortified by him and that manatee he trots around. -repulsive.
