I believe that the liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a fundamental right, not to be abridged by government interference, national or international. In the 82nd Legislative Session, our Legislators had the opportunity to urge the U.S. Congress to submit to voters an Amendment to the Constitution that would enumerate the rights of parents and protect them from the shifting political ideologies of the courts, and more importantly protect them from being placed under the jurisdiction of the international community. HCR 60 was introduced by Rep. Burkett on Feb. 10, passed the House Select Committee on State Sovereignty on April 14 by a vote of 5-1 (with 1 absent). Then, it passed the House May 18 by a vote of 123-21 (2 pnv, 4 absent). But it failed to move quickly through the Senate. Another resolution will be attempted in the next session in 2013, and I vow to support and lobby for it as a legislator, just as I lobbied for HCR 60 as a Conservative Texan and Citizen Lobbyist.
In the meantime, I have signed the following pledge:
I believe that parental rights should be constitutionally protected through the proposed Parental Rights Amendment:
The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a fundamental right.
Neither the United States nor any state shall infringe upon this right without demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest order and not otherwise served.
No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.
The Senate needs to bring up the Agenda 21 Treaty that Bush Senior signed off on for ratification prior to the November Election, if they vote it down, this nonsense is finished, if they ratify it, both political parties are finished-starting with the 33 Senators up for re-election
