- United States
- I despise the left wing liberal attempts to change America. I support FREEDOM, freedom of speech, right to bear arms, religious freedom and protecting the rights of Americans, including the unborn. Close the border, round up illegals and send them home. Welcome them back with a green card. I believe in preserving the visions of our founding fathers which did not include Socialism or Sharia Law. This IS STILL America.....at least for now.

H.J.Res.42 and The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
U. S. Rep Pete Hoekstra (R-Michigan) has introduced a bill that states parents have the fundamental right to raise their children as they see fit, without interference from government or any other organization such as the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Has the world gone mad? We are having to attempt to amend the constitution of the United States of America in order to protect the rights of American parents raising their children. We are having to amend something that already guarantees us this very right. Only in America would you find it necessary to create laws to enforce the laws in existence already, but if that is what it takes...so be it.
Well, I for one would like to thank Representative Hoekstra for having the forethought to protect the parent-child relationship from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The rights of parents is under attack from Washington. Obama has publicly stated that he is embarrassed that we, The United States of America, have not ratified the treaty on the rights of the child. We are the only country besides Somalia that has NOT ratified this treaty which would change parenting as we know it.
What business does the UN have in the parent-child relationship of Americans? Raising my children is my responsibility. I decide how they will be raised and educated. The state has no business coming into my relationship with my children.
America is losing her sovereignty. We are handing over control of so many issues in this country to other countries or the United Nations. Once we hand over the raising of our children...everything else is moot. The children of America are the future of America.
Please contact your congressmen TODAY and ask them to support H. J. Res 42, then tell everyone you know to do the same. We must pass this BEFORE Obama ratifies the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. You do not need to have small children or even have children at all to support this resolution!
