I would have to agree
with this writing on the relation of treaties to the Constitution. I have never
seen anything that would convince me that treaties are somehow superior to the
Constitution itself. I've seen many arguments
on this thought, but one thing they all have in common is complete disregard for
the fact that the Constitution was created solely for the protection of rights,
whether that be on the level of the individual or the authorities and powers
temporarily granted to government for a larger scale
purpose. None have allowed the facts of our
three branches of government to come into play as a stopping point for such
violations of our rights. None have considered that treaties must also answer to
the courts and rights violations will not be tolerated.
It seems that someone is putting this stuff out to an already frightened
public (rightfully so, given other acts of government) in an effort to justify
treaties being allowed to violate us or possibly as cover for the reality that
rights violating laws created within the U.S., that are said to be done so as
part of a treaty, are in fact done by the law creators themselves and not a
treaty. Hold the rights violating representatives responsible and you can forget
about treaties having a problem.
