WE CAN WIN on this BAD UN TREATY! MORE AMMO from NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE! COMPLIANCE with this treaty would COST MILLIONS! IT’S UNCONSTITUTIONAL to ANSWER to a FOREIGN AGENCY!

Parental Rights (www.parentalrights.org) is reporting in its email it sends to me and seven million other people that the calls are overwhelmingly against the treaty but the emails are about 50-50!

According to our contacts on the Hill, Senate offices are getting pounded with calls regarding the CRPD, and most of those calls are against ratification – but the emails coming in are about “50-50.”

Please take a moment to send an email to your senators urging them to oppose the treaty.

You can find your senators’ email addresses by visiting http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm and clicking the link for your senators’ web forms.

Calls are still the best option, so if you haven’t called yet today, please do so now and plan to call tomorrow morning, too. But if you’ve already called, drop them a note as well.

Or go to their office!  Here’s another little tidbit for you wavering Senator courtesy of National Review Online:

And we haven’t even started on how self-abasing it would be for the U.S. to comply with the treaty. Every four years, we would be required to put together an interagency report on our disability-rights record (a project that would cost millions), and also to send a delegation (usually of at least 20 people) to Geneva to appear before a panel of international disability-rights experts. Panels of this sort often vilify our country’s human-rights record, according to Groves. “I’ve attended these sessions,” he says. “They’re absolutely insulting.” He continues: “We have to go to Geneva for what I call our quadrennial spanking, spending millions in assets and sweat and labor to throw ourselves in front of this committee just to get smacked around and told we’re doing a terrible, terrible job.”

Senator Lee feels the same way. “We don’t think that it’s appropriate for the United States to be answering to a U.N. convention based in Geneva, Switzerland, when we are the leader of the world on this issue, as we are on so many other issues,” he tells NRO.

So, let’s see if I understand this:  It costs millions to unconstitutionally answer to foreign agencies and we get pounded on top of that?  Maybe this will persuade Senator Barrasso to just say NO!  If you live in Wyoming or are a resident there – call Sen. Barrasso’s DC office!  Here‘s the info:

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