skullkrusher: TNel: I'm from PA and here is Toomey's response:

"While I believe we must be sensitive to the rights of the disabled, we have many American laws that protect Americans with disabilities," Sen. Toomey said. "This treaty would threaten U.S. autonomy and give the U.N. undue influence over American policy."

ARE YOU A FREAKING RETARD?!?!?!?! UN Treatys do not trump US Laws!

"This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding."

In Chief Justice Marshall's words:
"...a treaty may also contain provisions which confer certain rights upon the citizens or subjects of one of the nations residing in the territorial limits of the other, which partake of the nature of municipal law, and which are capable of enforcement as between private parties in the courts of the country."


I would kindly let you look a few posts above me where someone else already explained that you are wrong about that line in the Constitution and UN Treatys do not trump Federal Laws.

A Treaty has the same footing as federal law.
