Review:Help Make L.O.S.T. Go Away2007-10-31 00:00:00
Another day in the Senate, and another disastrous bill being debated and voted in. I can’t remember in recent memory a Senate that has introduced so many destructive and destabilizing bills for America as this current Senate in session.
Just over the last 3 months or so, we have had the Senate Amnesty bill, S-CHIP and now L.O.S.T.; the Law of the Sea Treaty. All these bills hide their true intentions behind pretty names like Comprehensive Immigration Reform and Children’s Health Insurance, and now a Sea Treaty, sounds so cut and dry, doesn’t it?
Well, just like the Comprehensive Immigration Reform which would have granted amnesty to ILLEGAL immigrants, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program which would have extended coverage to families who don’t need, illegal immigrants who don’t deserve it and adults who shouldn’t be in it, Law of the Sea Treaty comes with a whole host of skeletons in it’s closet.
First things first, my rule of thumb, my litmus test is that if Democrats are for it, especially liberals, it can’t be good for America. Red flag number one. second, Clinton was for it as President, Ronald Reagan was against it. Hmmm, Red flag number two.
Then you have to apply logic, if it looks like a liberal, feels like a liberal, it must smell like a liberal too, and this treaty stinks!
Once again, what’s best for America is coming in second to what is best for the World Community at-large, at least that’s the way the United Nations and Democrats are looking at it.
Thankfully, this treaty needs 67 votes in the Senate to be ratified, so there is a chance that Republicans alone can kill this treaty. Conservatives must unite one more time and join together in working to defeat L.O.S.T.
To sum up the problems with this treaty, it gives the United Nations control of activities on, over and beneath the ocean’s surface. America, which maintains the largest and most powerful Navy in the World would need permission from a United Nations International Tribunal to do pretty much anything that we do now.
Another words, a Country who doesn’t even maintain a Navy would have an equal vote with the United States in all matters pertaining to the ocean. It would put other Country’s dictator’s in a position to thwart the United States in any kind of military operation and we already know how friendly the United Nations is to the U.S.
From an economic standpoint, the treaty literally gives the United Nations a blank check, a blank check signed by the United States with no control on how the money is spent. Even eminent domain comes into play with this, the treaty grants the United Nations the power to seize technology and share with possible enemies of the United States. Sound good so far?
Please contact your Senators and urge them to vote no on the Law of the Sea Treaty and let’s make L.O.S.T. stay that way!-- 'The Commish' A.J. Sparxx
