Lisa Murkowski and the United Nations

Recently the Senate voted to reject the UN treaty for disabled rights in a 61-38 vote, 5 shy of passing. On the surface this sounds like a very Callous vote by the Senate Republicans. The truth however lies in the details! If this vote would have passed then the U.N. would create new abortion rights and impede the ability of people to home-school disabled children just to start with. The treaty would infringe on U.S. sovereignty, an argument echoed by other opponents.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) argued and I quote... This unelected bureaucratic body would pass recommendations that would be forced upon the United States if we were a signatory.

The question everyone should ask is why in the heck did our very own Senator Lisa Murkowski vote for this? Why is it she is so willing to take our freedoms and turn it over to a governing body that for all intent and purposes hates the United States and their one purpose is to bring us down to 3rd world status. Everyone should call or email her and ask her what she was thinking when she decided to vote this way. Was her vote in the best interest of Alaska or someway to furfill a liberal agenda that she has hidden all along?

The website for the senator is...
