Description: WHEREAS: On January 13, 2003 the UN passed the UN taxation ban. In accordance with the ban UN nations decided that taxes could not be collected directly from the citizens of any member state for any purpose. It passed overwhelmingly by a vote of 4522 to 719 (over 86% support). While still recognizing the importance of the UN, as well as the importance of the programs they provide....


-No proposal will be accepted for UN vote that rely on increased taxation from UN nations.
-Only proposals that explicitly state that they are to be funded by nations that have the ability or the desire to do so at their own expense shall be considered.
-That nations whose own policies in place that are stronger or better than the currently proposed resolution will not be forced to weaken or change their current laws. (Where doubt arises here, it will simply be required that the UN nation produce proof of their law).

ALL future UN Resolutions will NOT alter the tax rate of UN Member nations thus allowing greater democratic freedom and national sovereignty.
