Sovereignty stolen

April 5, 2009

Sovereignty means “supreme, independent authority….” National sovereignty means “supreme, independent authority in government.” The United States bought its sovereignty with the blood of sovereign individuals who laid down their lives so this nation could be free from the dictates and demands of another nation.

The United States joined the community of nations as a sovereign nation.  Over time, however, little by little, this sovereignty has been stolen.

Article two of the Convention on the Law of the Sea declares: “The sovereignty over the territorial sea is exercised subject to this Convention and to other rules of international law.” This treaty, if ratified, will steal a little sovereignty from the United States.

A little sovereignty was stolen by the North American Free Trade Agreement, by Article 511, which requires that each member nation conform its laws to NAFTA’s uniform regulations within 180 days of the issuance of regulations.  These NAFTA regulations are issued by non-elected bureaucrats.  Their power to compel the United States to change its laws is the usurpation – or theft – of national sovereignty.

The story continues …..
