Rights: The Senate is considering a treaty which says "disability is an evolving concept" and which would infringe on U.S. sovereignty and the right to raise our children as American families see fit.
Those who thought that the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) adequately guaranteed the rights of the handicapped to have access to all facets of American life were apparently wrong.
The U.S. Senate is considering ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which President Obama signed in 2009 and which goes well beyond mandating wheel-chair ramps for public buildings.
CRPD doesn't even bother to adequately define what disabilities it covers but rather merely says the definition is "evolving," a loaded term that rivals in its potential expansiveness the phrase "the Secretary shall determine" that is repeatedly found in the Affordable Care Act.
It's this bad: If the treaty is ratified and becomes the law of the land, it will be an open-ended invitation to govern us without our consent.
There is no need for us to ratify the CRPD. As Steven Groves of the Heritage Foundation points out, the U.S. already has in place numerous federal laws to protect and advance the cause of Americans with disabilities such as the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and the Fair Housing Act, among others.
The rest of the world is free to follow our lead.
In a press conference on Capitol Hill Monday, former Senator and GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum, the father of a handicapped child, joined Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, in denouncing the CRPD, saying it would open a "Pandora's box" of legal interpretations resulting in a "direct assault on us and our families."

All Your Kids are Belong to the United Nations.
Anybody who supports giving up any of U.S. sovereignty is by definition anti-American.
Folks, the bell is chiming on the revolution midnight clock.
The UN needs to be disabled, dismantled, demolished, deported.
Cultivating and fabricating inadequacies, fears, dependencies and crisis and famines... that’s the Alinsky communist deranged UN for you. All hail the UN and its liberal wunderkids like Zero.
Frankly, at this point, there is little difference between the UN’s genearalization of “all race inadequacies” and Euro/Hitler feelings of inadequacies with respect to Jews which called for their murder, for this hate love which made them murdered, and, yet, their tatooed skins and trinckets that were looted are still kept around those hoarding german families....
It should start at the UN. GET THEM OUT.
As weve seen with the ADA, this would just pathologize every moral failing into a disability needing accomdation and subsidy by the government. Nobody would every be held accountable for anything because they cant help it. A massive increase in the welfare state and income redistribution.
Does anybody believe that members of the U.N. will leave on their own?
Does anybody believe the U.S. will leave the U.N.?
Will ANYBODY do ANYTHING?
