    I say we jump all over the slightest threat to our liberties like a duck on a june-bug. Because, "this ain't no bog deal", is exactly what people said before the Commies took over in Russia and the Nazis took over in Germany; the Commies in Southest Asia; the list goes on. I would rather attack these strategies when it's just matter of fussin' rather than having to go to the cartridge box.
    This isn't ****ing Nazi Germany, and you're delusional to compare this to it. Live in constant fear if you, if you can call it a life, but personally I'll take things from a reasonable perspective.

    While that is true, I don't see us ratifying anything which would force global law over us and if such were true then we need to ensure that our government is not permitted to operate in such manner.

    no treaty can violate the Constitution, so I see little to worry about.

    again, the Constitution trumps ANY treaty we sign. so save the feigned-fear.

    Why are they resorting to that type of paranoia nonsense now? Does it generate more revenue.

    Nobody's coming for anybody's guns. Ain't nobody even talking about coming for my guns but the tinfoil hat paranoid people.

    Really?!?

    Get a grip.

    Americans and their guns are inseparable. Everybody knows that.

    You can all come out now. The wicked witch is dead.

    Sheeeesh....
    Is it the NRA? Or is it fear mongers on the far right? Legitimate question, I stopped watching tv a long time ago because I got tired of hearing new and innovative ways on how we're all gon ****ing die every week.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    What does this treaty actually do? I see what some alarmists write, but I can't find hard original text.

    Not yet! And, with folks like me, it never will be.

    Remember when Libbos screamed like a pig under a fence that it's our patriotic duty to question our government? I betting--since The One is in office--that most of you don't!

    That's because there is none, its been said plenty of times in this topic already, the text for these treaty doesn't exist yet its still in the "brain storming" phrase and if it keeps to its schedule then there will be a draft soon but of course that draft will go under other revisions as well.

    Don't call me a liberal, I'm not one and I passionately avoid labels like that. And if you want to go on thinking you're the only line of defense against a nazi take over of America go ahead and keep on thinking that way, but you're living in a ****ing fantasy world.

    Oh, and I couldn't help but notice you ignored the source you were asking for. Guess that got in the way of the fantasy.

    How long do we have to go through the red tape to prove that the government can't trump the Constitution?

    Why not have a president that says, "no! that treaty would conflict with our constitution", instead of a president that doesn't give a rat's ass about it, just as long as it goes along with his political agenda?
