No individual in their right mind would give control of 2/3rd of the earth’s surface to a small committee in the UN controlled by land locked Third World nations. That is the latest lame brained scheme being pushed by the Obama Administration. The UN annually will charge the US untold millions of dollars for permits to do prospecting for seabed mineral mining, exploring and drilling for oil, and for fishing rights, as well as requiring payment of taxes on a percentage of the profits generated from the efforts of US firms involved in the Free enterprise system. The US should be free to develop ocean resources as all nations have done for over 4000 years. In addition the LOST Treaty will transfer islands and territory off the coast of Alaska, rich in oil to Russia.
We encourage all Americans who believe in the independence of the Republic and want to retain their freedoms as outlined in the US Constitution, to inform your US Senators that you strongly oppose the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). You and American citizens like you are the fundamental strength of this Republic, please pass this E-mail on to all those in your address book who will join you in opposing this LOST Treaty. Your US Senator should be informed that the American voters want to retain the basic freedoms that our Founding Fathers gave us 236 years ago, we want to continue to be independent, and oppose being dominated by the UN.
