All this BS about it automatically taking effect, etc., is a bunch of hogwash and if people read up on exactly how things have to go to accomplish what you're saying is a done deal they would know better!
Whatever you say....
Better delve into the mechanics of the treaty and it's impact before signing off as a naysayer.
Better yet, in as much as the War Powers Act is in force (and has been for the last 50 years or so), the President, at any time, without the consent of Congress (or his wife) can invoke martial law and confiscate weapons legally held by the citizens.
Not that he would, even though he did (in the case of Katrina).
It's too obvious and too upfront. Better to 'back door' the policy like was done to Kelly MacMillan and in the case of the population, let the UN dictate the policy, via treaty. I can happen and will happen if Hillary and Reid are successful. A non vote constitutes acceptance. If Reid chooses to not present the proclimation for a vote, it becomes accepted and treaties override Constitutional mandate.....
But I'm sure you know that...... you do don't you??
The sky won't fall anytime soon, hopefully and as far as a tin hat, I prefer a fedora to keep the sun off.
Didn't know there was anyone left in Michigan. I was under the impression everyone left. I was going to turn the lights out........
