    A United Nations human rights treaty that could prohibit children from being spanked or homeschooled, ban youngsters from facing the death penalty and forbid parents from deciding their families' religion is on America's doorstep, a legal expert warns.

    Michael Farris of Purcellville, Va., is president of ParentalRights.org, chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association and chancellor of Patrick Henry College. He told WND that under the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, or CRC, every decision a parent makes can be reviewed by the government to determine whether it is in the child's best interest.

    "It's definitely on our doorstep," he said. "The left wants to make the Obama-Clinton era permanent. Treaties are a way to make it as permanent as stuff gets. It is very difficult to extract yourself from a treaty once you begin it. 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."

    More WingNut Daily fearmongering.
    Words like "could" means they are making this stuff up. And it isn't hard at all to get out of a treaty IF...and it is a BIG IF...it were ratified. Which it won't be. No news here folks...nothing to see...move along.

    I don't think he is making this stuff up. We should withdraw ourselves from the U.N. Tell me something, how many wars have we won where we have involved the U.N.?

    The answer is: Zero / None / Zip / Nada

    The U.N. only strives for one thing & that's world domination. They use peacekeeping mission as their tools. They will generally get between two countries who are fighting & tell them, "If you two don't stop fighting, we will use violence & sanctions against your countries."

    Pat Buchanan ran for president in 2000 stated that one of his first acts as president would be getting the U.N. off U.S. soil. He would give them 30 days to pack up & get out & if there were any problems with that, then he would send in the Marine Corps to help them pack up & ship them out. I wish we would more people vowing to do that.

    That would be difficult since we created the UN.

    Not really. All we have to do is say, "Y'all other countries can have & control the U.N." (That may be hard for a northern president to say.) Besides we provide 1/4 of its funding. Just imagine where we can spend that extra money that is freed up. Maybe the government could use that money & cut us a break on our taxes.

    No it wouldn't and it is not relevant to leaving it.
