The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST)
This LOST treaty bothers me terribly! On the one hand, participation in the Authority, with the ability to cast a blocking vote, sounds as if we could protect our interests. On the other hand, I am instantly opposed to any extension of UN or Agency authority over the US as yet another attempt to subvert our sovereignty and "tie us up with many little strings," as someone put it.
On balance, I would stick with the Freedom of the Seas laws currently on the books and ratified.
