Trip, I believe they will administrate our rights away if this passes. You only have to look at Chicago, DC, and NYC.

Also the affordable health care act is still being written. We have no idea what the end product will be but I bet it won't be affordable or healthcare. 10% of employers have said they will take the penalty. It hasn't fully been inacted yet.

Just from reading it, it doesn't appear to be a real, immediate threat. However, the ISU (IMPLEMENTATION SUPPORT UNIT) appears to have power to instigate a gun grab if they think they have an excuse. Also, if a member country accuses the U.S. of selling arms improperly, it may result in registration to prove where the suspect arms are.

Affordable!?!?!? BULLSHIT it will be!!! As soon as Obamacare passed my insurance went up 30% through my job. A year later it went up another 20% ... a 50% increase in 1yrs time!

How can you tell a politician is lying? Their lips are moving! Old one but so true!

The Responses I got back from Schumer and Gillibrand were pathetic scripted Centrist drivel. Neither will consider standing in the way of The NWO or any organization that supports it. We the occupants of most of New York who are Conservatives have no voice whatsoever in Washington and very little in Albany.

Unfortunately, nearly all of the rest of the nation is trying like hell to become just like NY, Cali and other cradle to Grave Nanny States hell bent on doing everything FOOG, for our own good!

One very troubling part is that future amendments will only take a 2/3rds majority of the UN. So if the senate ratifies it, the other shoe will drop and nothing the US could do about it.

Now THERE'S something to research for tomorrow. Can a treaty be ratified without the modifications passing through the Senate first? Hmmmm. Thanks - I like looking up stuff like this.

Don't get me wrong, I only said I don't see where its IMMEDIATELY threatening. There are so many holes and doorways into back door legislation that even my poorly trained legal eyes can see many of them.
