Theme #3:  What goes around comes around; international and extra-territorial foreign laws cannot be ignored.  Unless efforts are robustly undertaken to better shape emerging progressive international law so that it more fully incorporates and reflects the balanced, benchmarked and traditional rule of law precepts of our unique federalist U.S. constitutional system, international law and extra-territorial foreign laws can and will ultimately have an adverse impact on the shape, form and tenor of U.S. domestic laws. 

Emerging international and extra-territorial regional standards and regulations, whether enacted by foreign governments or by intergovernmental organizations or international treaty bodies or tribunals, can potentially trigger or serve as the impetus for the reform or modified implementation of domestic laws, regulations and case law, and consequently, result in the abridgment of national constitutional rights and protections, including exclusive private property, free speech and other guaranteed rights.  For this reason, citizens must be vigilant to ensure that their elected representatives remain globally aware and cognizant of such promulgations to ensure that they are not adopted formally or informally in the United States, as either legislation, administrative regulations, judicial opinions, or presidential executive orders, memoranda or signing statements.
