We Get Letters…

or at the very least, Emails.

The Campaign for Liberty sent me an interesting one the other day.

Dear Guffaw,

Imagine if government bureaucrats could remove children from their homes without having to prove the parents were unfit or without even granting the parents due process…

Imagine if your workplace, your home, and maybe even your house of worship had to conform to international standards

Imagine if the US Government could be hauled into an international tribunal if it cut foreign aid or domestic welfare spending…

These are real possibilities if the United States Senate ratifies the misnamed United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

unhelmetFun stuff, eh?  And they detail even MORE potential for abuse on behalf of the United Nations – You know, because they’re so good at doing everything else!

If it sounds unbelievable, just take a look at what the treaty contains:

>>> Article 4(10)(a) requires that ALL American law that could affect anyone defined as disabled conform to the “standards” of the one-world socialists at the UN, while section 4(5) forces state and local governments to change their laws to please the UN;

>>> Article 4(1)(e) gives UN bureaucrats the power to make “any person, organization, or private enterprise” conform to their standards, thus allowing them to impose costly, job-killing regulations on private businesses and give international bureaucrats unprecedented authority to violate our property, association, and even free speech rights;

>>> Article 4(2) creates an entitlement to government-provided “economic, social and cultural” rights, thus creating a legal obligation for Congress to continue welfare spending;

>>> Article 4(2) also creates a legal obligation for “wealthy countries” like the United States to provide “the maximum of its available resources… where needed, within the framework of international cooperation….”

This creates an open-ended obligation for the US to provide ever-increasing levels of “foreign aid”;

>>> Article 7(2) creates a new legal “best interests of the child” standard, while Article 23(4) allows for the removal of children from their parents anytime “competent authorities” decide the government knows the best interest of the child better than parents do.

The bureaucrats do not even have to prove the parents are unfit or grant the parents any due process rights before taking their children!

Clearly, this UN Treaty is a statist’s dream come true. And a nightmare for supporters of liberty and constitutional government.

Here’s a link to to fax a memo to the Senate opposing ratification of the CRPD.

Just in case your are interested.  Of course, do your own research first.

And yes, they do ask for money.  I can’t afford it – perhaps you can.

  3. anytime “competent authorities” decide

    If only there were some. If only they could actually make a decision that doesn’t require a wet finger in the air.

    Damn! All these questions in my head and no liberal around to tell me how to think properly and bring out my feelings.
    Where oh where can I get a hug from a bureaucrat? I need reassurance from John FrankenKerry.
