We all know an Obama presidency is hazardous to freedom and liberty. He is now trying to bypass the Senate and impose a treaty on America that could shred the First Amendment.
This is very urgent and we must take action to stop it.
What is this crisis?
The crisis is something called the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement or ACTA.
ACTA is an agreement that was signed on October 1, 2011. ACTA is in fact a treaty but Barack Obama wants this agreement accepted as a “Sole Executive Agreement.” Basically this means the constitutional provision that the Senate ratify treaties is thrown out and Barack Obama acts like a dictator.
ACTA is even worse than SOPA or PIPA. ACTA creates a new international governing body which controls counterfeit goods, generic medicines and pirated copyright protected works.
ACTA gives Copyright holders the power to demand Internet Service Providers (ISPs) remove allegedly copyrighted material from a website without a court hearing. It permits foreign governments to exercise control of ISPs in America. Those who are supporting ACTA also want an Internet death penalty that would cut off Internet access for those who “offend.” The only way to enforce such a mechanism would be to create an Internet ID that you must have to access the Internet.
Any claim of copyright infringement will require the ISP to remove the content from the website, without your constitutional right to your day in court. Tyrants all over the world want to crush a free press and free speech. Why would anyone think Barack Obama is any different?
Perhaps the most alarming part of this ACTA agreement is that it would create an international body that would supersede Congress’ authority. Can you imagine having your rights for freedom of speech to be adjudicated by Iran and China as opposed to American courts?
Does anyone see the problems with this?
ALERT! WE MUST ACT. OBAMA IS TRYING TO SHRED THE CONSTITUTION AGAIN!
