We've heard all the complaints: “Big government--it meddles too much in our lives.” “Big government--too much red tape.”  “Big taxes--they're ruining the country.”  “Big bureaucracy--it doesn't solve problems. It creates them.” So the chorus goes. But nothing changes. The outlook for constitutional restraint is ever more grim. 

Parroting the same old cliches keeps us going around in circles and avoiding serious thought.  For a change, consider the possibility that the main problem is not big government, but bigamous government.  What if we have been supporting two national governments instead of one? It is not only expensive, but also a source of conflict and confusion. 

First, there was constitutional government. It was created by a contract between the states forming the United States of America, the USA. But in the Twentieth Century certain groups wanted a different more extensive arrangement. They wanted a worldwide system that could be managed by appointed and self-appointed officials rather than limited government served by representatives responsible to an electorate. 

These groups advocated an administrative system with greater control over social, cultural, educational, political, economic, and private activities. A union of 50 states was too cumbersome for such central management. Those who advocated the change needed a way to disempower the states and immobilize elected officials. They might have wished they could eliminate the states altogether, but that would have been too direct and too obvious. 

Instead they threw blankets over the states and grouped them into regions. President Nixon issued the order in 1969. He didn't explain at the time, but actually the order created an additional government--a top-down government which was called ‘regional government.’ 

The regional government consolidated the states into ten regions. Would you believe it? Many elected officials, who took an oath of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution and their state constitutions, sanctioned and even promoted this usurpation of authority. Why would they do such a thing?  Didn't they know their actions could destroy the USA? 

It is likely that many of them did not. All they were thinking about was money. Much of the money collected in taxes by the federal government is sent back to the states, counties, cities, towns, school districts and individuals. Certain businesses and organizations also receive financial incentives for special types of cooperation. When the regional government was created it was made the vehicle for distribution of federal funds. 

While some officials in state and local government thought they were merely receiving grants, they were in effect selling their authority to the regional government--an act inconsistent with their responsibilities. 

Instead of being under local authority the states and communities were answerable to the administrators of regions. The naive elected officials, who believed that regionalism was no more than a different system for distributing federal grants, were easily deceived. 

Regional government, a bigamous form of government, is complicated, expensive and devious; but the situation is further confused because it does not stop at our borders.  It is a worldwide setup under the United Nations. This means laws, policies, executive orders and administrative rules adopted here are often the result of recommendations made by self-appointed international ‘decision-makers.’ Working through the United Nations these unelected decision makers, not only from the United States, but also from Russia, France, Asia, Africa, India, China, etc., meet to make recommendations about all aspects of our lives. 

Most people have no idea that the bigamous international regional government exists, much less the tremendous influence its administrators have over our lives and communities. But the sad fact is that we are rapidly being drawn into this world administrative system, and many among us are members of groups sanctioning the process. This is because hundreds of civic, social, charitable, educational, cultural and professional organizations in the United States with millions of members support regionalism rather than constitutional government, demonstrating once again what the Greek historian, Herodotus, observed nearly twenty-five centuries ago: “It seems indeed to be easier to deceive a multitude than one man.” 

The leaders of these organizations have transferred their group loyalty from the USA to the world management system. They have done this by signing up with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of United Nations as non governmental organizations (NGOs) consulting with and pledging loyalty to the United Nations. 

The same thing is happening in other countries. Worldwide more than 2000 NGOs are pledged to support United Nations power over the internal affairs of their own countries.  If the reader of this article is a member of any national or international organization it is more than likely that this membership puts him/her in the position of sanctioning regional government above constitutional government. 

Among those organizations beholden to the United Nations and committed to support world regional government are: International Chamber of Commerce, American Assn. of Retired Persons, Humane Society of the United States, International Assn. of Lions Clubs, International Confederation of Free Trade Unions, International Council for Adult Education, International Council of Voluntary Agencies, International Federation of Business and Professional Women, International Planned Parenthood Federation, International Social Security Association, International Union of Local Authorities, Rotary International, Socialist International, World Federation of Trade Unions, World Federation of United and Twinned Towns, American Bar Assn., American Civil Liberties Union, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; American Jewish Committee; the Andrew Mellon Foundation, Christian Aid, Christian Children's Fund, Christian Democratic International, Church World Service, Eagle Forum, Goodwill Industries International, Inter-American Federation of Touring and Automobile Clubs, Inter-American Press Assn., International Assn. of Judges, International Assn. of Lawyers, International Assn., of Schools of Social Work, International Assn. of University Presidents, International Assn. of Women in Radio and Television, International Bar Assn., International Catholic Child Bureau, International College of Surgeons, International Confederation of Christian Family Movement, International Council of Jewish Women, International Council of Psychologists, International Family Therapy Association, International Federation for Housing and Planning, International Federation of Journalists, International Federation of Social Workers, International Federation of University Women, International Organization of Journalists, International Press Institute, International Union of Producers and Distributors of Electrical Energy, International Union of Psychological Sciences, International Union of Socialist Youth, Junior Chamber International, League of Women Voters of the United States, Lutheran World Federation, National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund, National Women's Political Caucus, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Presbyterian Church (USA), Salvation Army, Special Olympics International, Unitarian Universalist Assn., Word of Life Christian Fellowship, World Alliance of Young Men's Christian Assns., World Assn. of Community Broadcasters,  World Assn. of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, World Council of Independent Christian Churches, World Evangelical Fellowship, World Federalist Movement, World Federation for Mental Health, World Federation of Methodist Women, World Young Women's Christian Assn. 

There are hundreds more, but that should be enough for us to understand what a large blanket United Nations regional government has thrown over the United States.  The united regions of America has nothing to do with our history or the United States Constitution. It is an administrative top/down system of control. When regional government is involved ordinary citizens have little to say. They and elected officials are used merely to sanction decisions made by international regional government administrators. 

The promoters of world regional government care little how much they put the USA into debt or under obligation so long as they can have control. They have changed the rules. They have given away control of our common property, including the Panama Canal. They have taken over the education of children, sent them to schools far away from home, and then told them they no longer need to obey their parents, but are free to choose their own values and make up their own rules. They have subjected citizens to endless psychological and sociological experimentation. They mock parents who attempt to teach their children the difference between right and wrong. 

They divide citizens into groups favoring some groups over others. They lie without conscience and cause injury without regret. They use every device and bribe to make all dependent on, and beholden to the system. They expose children to sexual suggestion and then tell them they have the right to all types of sexual experience. They explain mind-altering drugs to children, and then suggest that they have the right to make their own decision about using them. 

Why would world government promoters do such things? Because in a united world we and the children have to learn to be tolerant of all the world's sins. We must learn to be non judgmental. We must dedicate ourselves to the goals of regional government. A new concept of right and wrong is involved. Right means to support regional government goals. Wrong is to have personal goals that do not support regional government. 

With all of this going on, isn't it stupid and futile to do no more than complain about big government? Shouldn't elected officials be forced to get rid of his illegal, vicious, sadistic, and extravagant extra government?  Isn't it the duty of state legislators, governors, congressmen, and elected officials everywhere to do all they can to reclaim their legitimate authority--to do everything in their power to end our bigamous relationship with world regional government? 

And isn't it our responsibility to learn how non governmental organizations (NGOs) are being used to help set up a world management system? Regional government was created to replace and then destroy constitutional government. No amount of gutless, evasive, self-serving oratory about big government can help. Time is short. Americans need to understand that our very survival as a nation depends on reestablishing the United States Constitution and the constitutions of the various states.
