Reagan opposed it, and it's been dead for a while. But it looks like Obama wants it - and it's it's on the "fast track" for Senate approval right NOW!
It's the "Law of the Sea Treaty" (LOST) - a push by "global" bureaucrats and psudo-socialist governments to put themselves in charge of "who" can do "what" on our planet's oceans, impose what amount to "world taxes" (mostly paid by Americans of course) and "redistribute" our sovereignty in the process.
In other words, it's a VERY BAD IDEA. (See the talking points, or "more information" links below).
But in order to stop it - again - all we have to do make sure that 34 Senators stand firm and say "NO".
Take Action: If you are on Twitter, click any of the follow Senator's names to send a custom message to their Twitter accounts calling on them to say "NO"! (We will add to or delete from this list to update)
