Get the US out of the UN: Concerned Citizen Persuades Congressman

A concerned citizen convinced his congressman to sign on as a co-sponsor of the American Sovereignty Restoration Act requiring the US leave the UN.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” This oft-repeated aphorism is attributed to influential 18th-century conservative politician Edmund Burke.

Although it is disputed whether Burke ever wrote or spoke that famous phrase, there is another similar statement that he certainly wrote in 1770. “When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle,” Burke wrote in his book Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents.

Heeding Burke’s warning, one man recently decided to encourage his congressman to associate with others in the House of Representatives in standing up in defense of America’s constitutionally protected liberty.

On September 4, at a public meeting in Oakland, Tennessee, Mitchell Morrison of Memphis delivered a stack of postcards to Representative Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn.). Each of these pieces of card stock carried the name of a constituent supporting H.R. 75, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act.

Five days later, Fincher signed on as a cosponsor, joining the small band of good men associating to rid the United States of one of the most dangerous threats to the perpetuation of its sovereign liberty.

Picking up the baton from a retiring Ron Paul, Paul Broun (R-Ga.) is the chief sponsor of H.R. 75. Currently, there are six cosponsors of the bill.

Ron Paul introduced the bill in 1997 (then given the number H.R. 1146). Dr. Broun reintroduced the exact legislation earlier this year.

Seven of the bill’s 13 sections effect a complete withdrawal of the United States from the United Nations.

Section 2 repeals the United Nations Participation Act of 1945. This terminates membership of the United States “in the United Nations, and in any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body of the United Nations.”

Section 3 of the act would repeal the The United Nations Headquarters Agreement Act. This agreement — signed at Lake Success, New York, on June 26, 1947 — established New York City as the permanent headquarters of the United Nations. The effect of this provision of the bill would be the immediate relocation of the UN headquarters to other, more hospitable shores.

Section 4 cuts off the flow of U.S. taxpayer money that is the lifeblood of the accomplishment of the internationalists’ agenda, including the disarmament of citizens of the United States. Specifically, the bill mandates:
