Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, Jesse Helms, created
quite a stir when he appeared before the United Nations Security Council
recently. In effect, he told the group of socialists to bug off. He
reminded them that the United States was a sovereign nation and that it
would never surrender its sovereignty to a group of New World Order
geeks. He further told them to quit meddling in our affairs and to stop
pretending they are the world’s policemen. He even suggested the United

and financiers who have no loyalty to our country. They are people who
worship at the altar of power and greed. They are without honor or
principle. Their souls belong to the devil and their fidelity to the
highest bidder. They deserve neither respect nor courtesy.
Unfortunately, both major parties are comprised of people who dance
to the tunes played by these pernicious pipers. That is why, no matter
which party is in power, the country continues its jeopardy-filled
journey into internationalism.
I refuse to play along. I will no longer vote for the lesser of two
evils. I will only vote for a principled, America-first candidate. If
such a candidate is not nominated by either major party, I will look
elsewhere. The prospects being what they are, I think my search has
