Modern Whigs are neither Conservative nor Liberal and do not wish to be confined to the traditional left-right political spectrum. In fact, in a purely historical or classic context, we can be considered Conservative Liberals.

My concern would be if there is any kind of international registry for the handicapped or if there was any kind of UN oversight over anyone or anything in the US. This doesn't seem like something that should be in a treaty.

Those people are way more comfy with the international group-think than I care for (meaning all the damn Bushes). Again I'll poke around but why does this have to be a treaty? Are they slipping some BS symbolic shit through now as a trial-run so that they can circumvent the US Constitution later on? Why was this done during a lame duck session with very little public debate?I still go back to this, we have the ADA, what the fuck do we need to sign a treaty for? I'd say to Costa Rica, "hey we passed the ADA, call us up if you need some consultants, we've conducted all the lessons learned reviews, and can now recommend how to really be efficient in your roll-out (for a fee).
