IN OPPOSITION TO ANY FORM OF WORLD GOVERNMENT.

WHEREAS, the Sovereignty Preservation Council of Delaware, composed of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, The American Legion, The National Sojourner's Council of Polish Societies and Clubs in the State of Delaware are interested in the Resolution presented below; and

WHEREAS, in 1943, a resolution was introduced into the General Assembly asking it to petition the Congress of the United States to call a conference of Nations to create a Limited World Government, and said resolution failed to pass; and

WHEREAS, again in 1949, a similar resolution was introduced into the General Assembly and it also failed to pass; and

WHEREAS, a World Government would deprive the citizens of the United States of inalienable rights, privileges and immunities now guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States; and

WHEREAS, in the present crisis it is highly important that the citizens of the United States present a united front against any and all forces that tend to destroy our American Heritage; and *

WHEREAS, Delaware was the first State to ratify the Constitution of the United States and therefore should be the last to take any action which would weaken or destroy it; and

WHEREAS, the General Assembly is composed of Senators and Representatives, elected by the people of Delaware, who are sworn to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Delaware;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Senate of the State of Delaware, the House of Representatives concurring therein, that the General Assembly of Delaware is unalterably opposed to any and all plans, programs and proposals which tend toward the development of any form of World Government.

Adopted April 12, 1951.
