    has anyone been following the treaty that ms. clinton is working on in her spare time. i admit i havent been and was wandering if someone could explain it. do treaties with other countries trump our constitution? someone told me tha it could be a gun grab like what happened in australia.

    It never made it to a vote

    And if it would have it would need 60% of the senate to ratify and they weren't close

    Another problem with the treaty was it was open ended.

    It was written so a simple majority of nations could change the treaty without going back to treaty countries for approval. All the anti-USA countries could ganged up on the US and we would have been screwed....

    NO foreign treaty can override the Constitution of the United States. Read the whole thing and in particular the last few paragraphs. Also click on the highlighted "Reid vs Covert".

    Joe Potosky, Don't you feel all warm and safe that our Secretary of State of these United States would entertain such a piece of crap on American soil & American citizens? (Attn: this is sarcasm)

    Talk about chutzpah!
