TO THE HONORABLE BILL CLINTON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, AND TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE AND THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, AND TO THE SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES, IN CONGRESS ASSEMBLED:
We, your Memorialists, the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Washington, in legislative session assembled, respectfully represent and petition as follows:
WHEREAS, The constitutional role of our military is to protect the life, liberty, and property of United States citizens and to defend our nation against insurrection or foreign invasion; and
WHEREAS, The United States is an independent sovereign nation and not a tributary of the United Nations; and
WHEREAS, There is a lack of popular support for the establishment of a "new world order" or world sovereignty of any kind either under the United Nations or under any world body in any form of global government; and
WHEREAS, Global government would mean the destruction of our Constitution and corruption of the spirit of the Declaration of Independence, our freedom, and our way of life;
NOW, THEREFORE, Your Memorialists respectfully urge the United States Congress to cease to appropriate funds for any military activity not authorized by Congress and to not engage in any military activity under the authority of the United Nations or of any world body.
BE IT RESOLVED, That copies of this Memorial be immediately transmitted to the Honorable Bill Clinton, President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and each member of Congress from the State of Washington.
