What I want to know is:  Why not? Many of those men and women are strong conservatives.  So I place this a public service of Virginia Right and exhort our readers in those states to call their offices.  We do not need UN bureaucrats telling us what to do and do not need kids suing their parents for making them go to church or because they searched their room.  Our law is fine as it is.  Call your senator today.  (I have already emailed Senators Webb and Warner about this and got a form email back from Senator Warner’s office.  Is it 2012 yet?  Or 2014?)

Here’s the text of the resolution.  Here is the website for Parental Rights (founded by Michael Farris).

We also have a local activist that speaks against this treaty.  Terry Beatley spoke last year at the Hanover GOP meeting about the dangers of the treaty and she is great!  Invite her to your civic group.  Contact Terry at tbeatley at

UPDATE:  The Maine GOP Platform (called a Ron Paul/Tea Party platform!) calls for the Senate to reject this treaty!  I call on all Tea Partiers to rally behind Sen. DeMint’s resolution!

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