LOST Treaty, UN Treaty, Gun Treaty Will Usurp
U.S. Constitution and Kill American Liberty
UN Globalists Pushing for US Senate Ratifications
Before November Elections

A finalized Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) has Obama's approval, and pledge to sign. President Ronald Reagan flatly rejected U.S. support of LOST in 1983, because of its encroachments upon U.S. sovereignty. The question now arises as to why some 16 Senate Republicans are evidently seriously contemplating ratification of a treaty that President Reagan wisely judged an international attempt to usurp American sovereignty, and a dangerous instrument to trump the U.S. Constitution.
The U.S. Constitution grants authority to presidents to enter into treaty agreements with other nations and entities. Hence, the imminent peril of Obama signing onto the U.N. treaties currently in negotiations in New York. But thanks to the protections of our Constitution, a treaty, should a president consent to its terms, may only become the law of the land, and bind our nation IF the U.S. Senate ratifies it by an exact two-thirds majority. The simple supermajority of 60 votes will not do. This means that 67 votes are needed in the Senate to approve a treaty.
Most political observers believe that all 53 Democrats in the Senate will vote to approve LOST. And if the Republicans who currently have failed to indicate opposition to the treaty do not hew to the party of Reagan, the Senate MAY HAVE the required 67 votes to ratify.
As many as SIXTEEN Republican Senators seem set to join with Democrats in ratifying LOST. There are those who have not yet decided how they will vote on the issue, those who have declared support for LOST, and those who have declined to state their decision.
The 16 Republicans who are apparently set to uphold the treaty, or who have not yet voiced a decision, are Enzi, Johanns, Ayotte, Graham, McCain, Lugar, Kirk, Snowe, Collins, Murkowski, Grassley, Portman, Corker, Cochran, Brown, and Alexander.
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THEY HEAR FROM YOU THAT AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY IS NOT NEGOTIABLE, AND THAT THE U.S. CONSTITUTION SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED BY INTERNATIONAL TREATIES!
