UN Child Rights Treaty Will Expand Government, Hurt Children

The Obama administration is renewing efforts to sign a United Nations treaty supposedly aimed at protecting children's rights. Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the UN announced last Monday that the administration is investigating “when and how it might be possible to join” the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).

While a treaty codifying children's rights may sound harmless, the true nature of this treaty is devastating to our family structure, Constitution, national sovereignty and security. New rights granted the child would include the right to “thought, conscience and religion.”

Do our children not already enjoy these rights? Our nation is already party to the treaty's two optional protocols: one preventing Child Prostitution and Child Pornography, the other preventing Children in Armed Conflict.

Why either of the two is “optional” is disturbing.

More, and more measures are being sought by the current administration to indoctrinate our young to their Socialist propaganda.

Under this treaty the UN, and the current administration will have more power over children's education, and in this treaty are included supposedly will give "CHILDREN" the right to "thought, conscience, and religion", which pretty much would mean more indoctrinational programs will be set up for children.

Here is what a Constitutional lawyer has to say about it.

In addition, enacting policy through treaty serves to insulate your agenda from elections. “If they can put all of their left-wing socialist policies into treaty form, we're stuck with it even if they lose the next election.” said Michael Farris, constitutional lawyer and founder of the HSLDA, in an interview with World Net Daily.

So, if this is enacted, even if Democrats lose the next election we will still be stucked with this treaty.

This will also mean most probably that children won't be able to have at home schooling anymore.

Being from the UK , I think that the US constituion should be a solid form ( as it was designed to be ) and that any amendments or alterations should only last the term of the office or President that implimented it, and then after the term has expired let the public vote on whether or not it be extended another term.

That way the usefull ammendments, ones that actually serve the community as a whole will stay and the ones that don't work or seem to serve only individuals or companies of congressmen would be scrapped.
