I saw this YouTube video today on Facebook. The UN is close to signing a treaty that would take precedence over the Constitution of the United States. Once signed and ratified by our congress, we will not be able to get out of it unless the other assignees let us out and they won't--because in the treaty it says that we will be the biggest payer (to third world countries) of what the treaty calls our "climate debt." Never mind the debt we are already wracking up in this country bailing out and controlling our own corporations, apparently we need to pay this imaginary debt as well.
The Supremacy Clause in our Constiution establishes treaties to be on par with the Constitution and federal statutes to be the law of the land. There are those who are very concerned that this treaty, which has in it UN enforcement as one of its purposes, would, in effect, hand over (some) authority and independence of the United States to the United Nations.
If any of this concerns you, please go to http://www.whitehouse.gov and click on "Contact us" in the upper right hand corner to voice your disapproval. A sample e-mail is below.
It has come to my attention you plan to sign a United Nations treaty entitled the "Global Climate Change Treaty" in Copenhagen, Denmark this coming December. DO NOT SIGN THIS TREATY! You will not be fulfilling your Oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America if you sign this treaty! Do not sell out the United States!
After it is signed by President Obama, this treaty will need to be ratified by a 2/3 vote in Congress. http://www.senate.gov will help you to find the names of your senators, if you do not already know them and you can contact them in a similar manner.
Here is a sample senatorial letter for this issue.
"Dear Mr. Senator:
It has come to my attention that President Obama will be signing a treaty entitled "Global Climate Change Treaty" in Copenhagen, Denmark this December 2009. This treaty will sell out the United States, Her Constitution, and People! It will destroy the sovereignty of the United States! Under Article II, Section II of the United States Constitution that for this treaty to be in effect within the United States the Senate must ratify it by a 2/3s vote. DO NOT VOTE TO RATIFY THIS TREATY! DO NOT ALLOW THE UNITED STATES TO BE RULED BY A FOREIGN POWER! KEEP YOUR OATH!
