A Texas Girl Speaks Out :: Americans, Please Listen!

While I am usually not one to voice political views on the Internet, I do want to encourage each and everyone of you (regardless of party affiliation) to stop sometime over the next week or so and view the UN Arms Treaty, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. All three of these will be making their way to the Senate very soon. If ratified, these treaties become the Supreme Law of the Land and trump our States' laws and our Constitution. 

 Opposing these treaties is something every American should consider just on the notion that someone else can tell Americans what our laws should be. On the flip side of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, there is a large push to add the Parental Rights Amendment to the US Constitution solidifying the rights of parents in this country (Something all parents should pay attention too!).

So what can we do? We can call our Senators and let them know our viewpoints as well as share this with our family and friends. Please know, I understand we all have different views on many hot topic issues, like marriage, women's rights, and the economy, but this is of even more importance, because at some point one of these treaties will effect you or your family - they will effect Americans.
