GOOD NEWS ON PARENTAL RIGHTS AND US SOVEREIGNTY! I ASK: WHERE ARE SENATORS LIEBERMAN, NELSON and WEBB?

The DeMint Senate resolution opposing the UN Child Treaty now has 25 co-sponsors.  It only needs 34.  Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Pat Roberts and Sam Brownback (R-Kansas) have signed on to the resolution according to parentalrights.org. 

That is great news and my readers in Alaska and Kansas should call or email Senators Murkowski, Brownback and Roberts thanking them for their support of national sovereignty and to stop bad UN (redundant perhaps!) law. 

What I want to know is:  Where’s the Democrats?  No Democrat has signed on. 

There are several more conservative members – Joseph Lieberman (I-CT), Ben Nelson (D-NE), and my own senator:  Jim Webb (D-VA).  They could and should support the DeMint resolution. 

Especially Senator Jim Webb:

Webb is a former sub-cabinet secretary under Reagan; he has a reputation to be strong on defense and ought to be concerned about sovereignty issues.  He’s something of a maverick (I wish he’d been more of one especially on Obamacare) so I sent him an email on this question; he responded with a standard response: 

Thank you for contacting my office regarding the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Children Treaty. I appreciate your taking the time to share your views with me. Currently there are no plans to consider this treaty. However, please be assured I will keep your thoughts in mind should this or a related issue come before the U.S. Senate. As a member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, I appreciate your taking the time to share your concerns. I would also invite you to visit my website at www.webb.senate.gov for regular updates about my activities and positions on matters that are important to Virginia and our nation.

 But the treaty is before the Senate, Senator Webb!  You can show leadership and sign on to Senator DeMint’s resolution.  Stand for Virginia parents and our sovereignty – do what President Reagan would have done!  Our Scotch-Irish forebears would never have stood for foreigners telling us what to do.  I urge ALL my tea party/Ron Paul readers in Virginia to email and call Senator Webb to support the DeMint resolution!

If you are in a state where your senators have not signed on to this resolution, contact them!  They’ll see the light when they feel the heat!  Especially in Nebraska and Connecticut.

    This statement, “he has a reputation to be strong on defense”, is without foundation. Webb is a Democrat. Anyone counting on a Democrat to have their back is not only acting in desperation, they are acting without rationale, and it doesn’t only apply to national defense…it also applies to life. Turn to the Democrat party, at your own risk.

  2. Elwood "Sandy" Sanders, Jr. says:

    I agree with much of your concerns about Democrats. But I believe Sen. Webb is at heart a good man who loves his country and he can be persuaded. Let’s try to persuade him.

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
