Pass The Bricker Amendment To The US Constitution

Senate Joint Resolution 130, the "Bricker Amendment" to the Constitution was introduced in Febuary 1952 by the late US Senator John W. Bricker (Republican-Ohio)

Section 1. A provision of a treaty which conflicts with this Constitution shall not be of any force or effect.
Section 2. A treaty shall become effective as internal law in the United States only through legislation which would be valid in the absence of treaty.
Section 3. Congress shall have power to regulate all executive and other agreements with any foreign power or international organization. All such agreements shall be subject to the limitations imposed on treaties by this article.
Section 4. The congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation

Unfortunately, this legislation failed to be enacted due largely to the opposition of President Eisenhower, his Vice-President Nixon and the liberal establishment.

This legislation is still needed as the United Nations continues to endanger not just the liberties of Americans but all individuals in the world. We must defend individual liberty and American independence enshrined in the US Constitution from the parasites on the Potomac and the Hudson Rivers in Washington and New York City.

Vote for Ron Paul in the Republican primaries and join the Libertarian Party thereafter. Better late than never for the Bricker Amendment, but enact it before it is too late.
