To say I am embarrassed and discouraged would be putting it mildly. Yesterday the Senate voted on a UN Treaty (CRPD), which would have given a foreign entity unprecedented jurisdiction in the private lives of American citizens. This troubling abdication of US sovereignty is just one in many troubling attempts by liberals to grant the United Nations influence of the American people. What is most shameful for me as a Maine resident is the knowledge that our two Republican Senators from Maine voted for this Treaty. Thankfully there was not the two-thirds majority needed to pass the Treaty. Senator Snowe and Senator Collins owe the people of the great and sovereign State of Maine an apology and explanation for their thoughtless vote.
