On U.S. Sovereignty

European eco-zealots want international enviro-crimes court

Pop Quiz…
Which 2008 Presidential candidate said the following?

…as conservatives, we believe that it is right to protect the sovereignty of the United States and to make sure that we never, ever, for any circumstance, under any purpose, ever yield one ounce of our sovereignty over to some international tribunal. (Cheers, applause.)

That’s why we have to fight — (continued applause) — that’s why we need to fight against the Law of the Sea Treaty and make sure that it gets a good burial at sea. That’s why we should say no to Kyoto, because it’s not giving over — (applause) — our sovereignty. And it’s why any time some United States judge who has taken an oath to the Constitution of the United States should invoke some international law as a basis upon which to make a decision, he should be summarily impeached for having done so. (Cheers, applause.)

Let me also say that it is right for our country, in believing in our sovereignty, to demand that we have something that every nation on earth accepts and, in fact, assumes would be a part of its nation’s essentials — a secure border. How we can ever believe that we can be a sovereign nation or a free nation without securing our borders is beyond me.

  1. Scott says:

    No big surprise…the Huckster is a nice man masquerading as a conservative. Just ask the good people of Arkansas.

  2. Huckabee still has a 65 percent approval rating in Arkansas.

    Huckabee was the clear winner of the Values Voter Presidential Debate, winning 63% of the Straw Poll.

    Anyone who refers to him as “Huckster” clearly shows their own bias.
