    Dear Anderson: I was very upset last week when you clearly only showed one side of the CPRD debate. I thank you for having Michael Farris on this week (12/10/12). PLEASE post the entire interview. We have researched this. There truly is a threat. If the CRPD is passed, there is NO safeguard from it stripping away our Constitutional rights. Please read Article 6 from our US Constitution: "[A]ll Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land..." PLEASE post the entire interview with Michael Farris. He is a brilliant scholar on this and only a portion of your interview with him was shown and posted on your current podcast. Please show the facts. The facts have not been clearly presented. PLEASE show both sides of this very serious matter. PLEASE SHOW THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW AS YOU STATED YOU WOULD. Thank you.
