Michele Bachmann: 'I don't want the U.S. to be in a global economy'
maybe the U.S. can secede from the Earth?

http://thinkprogress.org/2010/06/29/bachmann-global-eco... /

This past weekend, President Obama attended the G-20 Summit on international economic cooperation in Toronto, which ended with a declaration calling for member countries to work to ensure a full return to growth with quality jobs, to reform and strengthen financial systems, and to create strong, sustainable and balanced global growth. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), however, fears that the 20 countries were really working to set up a one world government.

In an interview on Scott Hennens radio show today, Bachmann claimed that the purpose of the G-20 was to bind together the worlds economies. Neglecting the already interconnected nature of the global economy, Bachman declared that President Obama is trying to bind the United States into a global economy:

BACHMANN: What really concerned me was Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said that we dont want to see one countrys economy doing better than another. What? This is the U.S. Treasury Secretary? We dont want to see Zimbabwes economy do better than the United States? Arent we supposed to be about the United States and making sure that our economy can be the greatest in the world. If you look at the G20, what theyre trying to do is bind together the worlds economies. Look how that played out in the European Union when they bound all of those nations economies together and one of the smallest economies, Greece, when they got into trouble, that one little nation is bringing down the entire EU. Well, President Obama is trying to bind the United States into a global economy where all of our nations come together in a global economy. I dont want the United States to be in a global economy where, where our economic future is bound to that of Zimbabwe. I cant, we cant necessarily trust the decisions that are being made financially in other countries.

So I think clearly this is a very bad direction because when you join the economic policy of different nations, it is one short step to joining political unity and then you would have literally, a one world government, said Bachmann. I dont want to cede United States authority to a transnational organization.

10. Her fans feel that way. It is funny that the rich republicans don't feel that way
because that is how they get rich...but they won't say anything because they depend on the ignorant masses following her for GOBP votes.
