George Allen's 'Virginia Values for Washington' ... Property Rights & Foreign Treaties including Agenda 21

“I have always sought to strengthen your Fifth Amendment rights as property owners, not diminish them. I oppose U.N. Agenda 21 and its push to make private property rights secondary to other concerns. I have long supported common sense measures to require government to consider the impact of its regulations on individuals, families, businesses and private property.”  – George Allen
George Allen has a long record as a champion of private property rights and the sovereignty of the United States of America.

He opposed the outrageous Kelo decision that upheld the forcing of people out of their homes, the very definition of the American dream, in the name of expanded government tax revenue, which is not a public purpose. As a Senator, he co-sponsored S. 1313, the Protection of Homes, Small Businesses and Private Property Act of 2005. This legislation would protect homes, small businesses and other private property rights by limiting the power of eminent domain.

George Allen opposes U.N. Agenda 21 and its push to make private property rights secondary to other concerns. He applauds Albemarle County and other Virginia localities that are taking a second look at U.N. Agenda 21 and believes the answers to having a balance between development and stewardship of our natural resources can best be found by listening to the people in their localities

George Allen has actively worked against foreign treaties that jeopardize our sovereignty, such as the Kyoto Treaty, Law of the Sea Treaty, and CEDAW that would attempt to make international laws and treaties superior to the laws of our nation and States. Foreign treaties that jeopardize or abrogate the sovereignty of the United States or commit this nation to unilateral action that will harm individuals and families, put our businesses at a competitive disadvantage with other countries, or that violate our Constitution and laws must be actively opposed.

In the Senate, he fought against CEDAW, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination. Parts of CEDAW called for legalized prostitution, would undermine laws that protect families, such as Parental Notification laws, and other policies that conflict with the laws of our own land. George Allen also does not support U.S. funding and involvement in the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child and does support a Parental Rights Amendment.

As your Senator, George Allen pledges to continue these strong stands against infringements on your rights as property owners and on the sovereignty of our nation’s laws.
