Actually I think it's great, there is nothing wrong with becoming signatories to international treaties and regulations and they do not supersede the constitution nor the legislature that article is alarmist nonsense as a quick look through will easily show.
"if we were to allow ourselves to be disarmed by these international soviet socialists, the next step would be to eliminate everyone who refuses to acquiesce to collective slavery."
Yep. I agree with Colpolbear and Josak. That article was rubbish. No sourcing, citations, or explanations, just fearmongering and rhetoric. Mind you, I dislike what Obama is doing, and he is attempting to use treaty law to effect changes on our own laws, but that article isn't going to give you a factual look at what he is really doing.
Perhaps you could link to a story that actually says what the treaty does or the actual text of the treaty. Because I can't think of a single potential way for international treaties to trump a nations own laws.
Hey, Cags. I know what you mean as to our concern about subordinating ourselves to the United Nations. I went and read the actual executive order. Fortunately, this latest order still does not do that. It says, in part:
"Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect: (i) the authority granted by law to a department or agency, or the head thereof;"
"(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person."
In other words, we can still tell another country to go f*ck themselves whenever we want.
Precisely but of course you won't find the article mentioning that, as far as it's concerned we are all about to be exterminated for not not saluting the supreme overlord , it's the archetype of stupid journalism and we should know better than to take it as anything more than a joke.
