AFS Survey Rejects Obama’s “Trojan Horse” Treaty of the United Nations

        A national survey of 5,000 supporters of Americans for Sovereignty revealed intense opposition to the ratification of a United Nations Treaty that the Obama Administration has sent to the Senate for ratification The survey indicated that they overwhelmingly opposed the so-called “United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.”  (CRPD).

        Over 90% of respondents oppose the loss of American sovereignty to UN bureaucrats in dealing with matters of disabilities.  The treaty would give oversight authority to a new UN committee over disability legislation in all countries.

        Similarly over 85% of respondents to the survey specifically opposed prospective United Nations mandates that could force homeowners make their home disabled accessible and even having UN bureaucrats determine the number of handicapped parking spaces should be allocated.

        Intense disagreement also arose over the implication in the treaty that UN bureaucrats should have superiority over parents in determining what is in the best interest of the disabled child.  The survey also rejected development of a mechanism in the treaty that would compel the United States to directly fund disability programs in other countries.

        Overall, the survey consistently revealed over 80% opposition to the innocuous sounding treaty and thus it was viewed as a “Trojan horse” treaty that would undermine both American sovereignty and the integrity of the family.

        Americans for Sovereignty is a project of Council for America.  With over 25,000 supporters, it is one of the largest organizations in the United States that focuses its attention on issues affecting continued American sovereignty.
