Say no to L.O.S.T.

I haven't posted anything about this treaty because I must admit, I don't know much about it. That said, Snooper over at Take Our Country Back has put together a great piece...

Why, you ask? Because Ronald Wilson Reagan did and here is why he totally rejected the premise.

The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea - commonly known at the Law of the Sea Treaty, or LOST - is the darling project of the transnational progressives, or "transies." Their goal is nothing less than the establishment of world government at the expense of traditional sovereignty.Any questions?Another U.N. Power Grabby William P. Clark and Edwin Meese, 10-8-07

Ronald Reagan's concerns with LOST

LOST poses fundamental threats to U.S. sovereignty

LOST empowers the United Nations

LOST demands damaging technology transfer

LOST is a mechanism for international taxation

LOST will restrains the operations of the U.S. military

LOST will subject the U.S. to dangerous litigation and regulation

LOST creates rigged-game decision mechanisms

LOST provides a backdoor for U.S. accession to the Kyoto Protocol

LOST creates dangerous precedents for other "international commons"

LOST creates mandatory dispute settlement mechanisms

China can use LOST to undermine U.S. interests in Asia
