The Democrat 2016 platform lists 3 treaties they would like ratified:
1. ...we will urge U.S. ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All
Forms of Discrimination Against Women.
2. And we will continue to fight for ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
3. We will strengthen the NPT, push for the ratification of the
Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty...
I notice they are missing th UN Convention on the rights of the child, which is the first of these that I heard of. It sounds good. We will all agree to do what is in the best interest of the child. Problem is - Who decides? Do we really want to give give up US sovereignty, by letting a UN committee tell us how to raise or chlildren? Or how to care for the disabled? Or women?
No, for these type of "rights" family, community, state should decide. Certainly not an international body - many of whom hate us.
As to the Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, again that sound good. But, the devil is in the details. And we already know that the Obama administration negotiated Iran deal makes us less safe.
