This is what I was thinking too.  The UN has not produced anything
like a constitution of the united states of earth, anything which
guarantees me freedom of speech, of religion, the right to bear
arms, any of that.  I have no vote for any leaders in the UN.  I
see nothing in the U.S. constitution that gives the federal 
government the right to cede any of its sovereignty to any 
entity such as the UN.  The U.S. fed couldn't legally cede any 
of my rights to that organization even if it wanted to.  This 
is a relief, for the UN appears to be corrupt to the core.  I 
think of the UN as functionally little more than a trade

Of this we can be sure, a central world authority is a bad idea,
very bad, for it concentrates too much political power.  It's 
too hard to get to another planet once the inevitable occurs.
