Dear Friend of America’s Survival, Inc.

You may have heard that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has launched a political action committee so that she can pursue a national political career. We do not take political positions on political strategies or political candidates, but we are concerned when a national figure such as Governor Palin demonstrates a seriously misguided view about an important treaty coming before the U.S. Senate. That is the case with the Alaska Governor’s support of the dangerous U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). 

On December 22 we wrote a letter to Governor Palin, asking her to examine the facts concerning the treaty. We have not received an answer to our letter. Can you help us get her attention on this matter?

The telephone number 907- 465-3500 will take you directly to her office. Please ask the Governor to come out against the Law of the Sea Treaty. Bill McAllister, the Governor's Communications Director and Press Secretary, can also be contacted. He can be reached by phone at 907-269-7450 or by fax at 907-269-7463.

Palin can also can be contacted through her “SARAHPAC” organization at 202-747-1812.

Please ask that the Governor respond to the America’s Survival, Inc. December 22 letter to her regarding her support of the Law of the Sea Treaty.

We argued that the United State already has a rightful claim to oil, gas, and mineral resources in the area near Alaska. We said it is a big mistake to rely on a U.N. treaty for access to them. Indeed, the U.N. would impose a global tax on countries and companies in order to get access to those resources. The U.N. could even deny our access to resources that we already have a claim to own. As we have argued in many different reports, the treaty is also a building block for world government.

The Law of the Sea Treaty could come up before the Senate very quickly. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said it is a “priority” of the Obama Administration. Governor Sarah Palin could help stop it – if she takes the principled position of opposing this further transfer of American wealth to the U.N.

Remember that much of our information about the measure is available in a special section on the left side of the home page of our website. 

For America,

Cliff Kincaid, President
