Tell congressman to end U.N. membership in two years

Since World War II we have continuously been in war-like actions, none declared by Congress as the Constitution requires. Why?

Following the world wars, people were willing to try anything to avoid another, so only two senators opposed joining the United Nations. One was Bill Langer of North Dakota who said, “The U.N. would have the authority to send our boys all over the world.”

Langer had read the Charter of the U.N. including Article 25 (“The members of the United Nations agree to accept and carry out the decisions of the Security Council ...”) and Article 43 (“All members of the United Nations ... undertake to make available to the Security Council on its call ... armed forces, assistance, and facilities ...” )

In 1945 Congress passed the United Nations Participation Act to give the president the power (without Congress) to send troops wherever the U.N. decided. One congressman noted, “this measure gives congressional authority for surrendering the American people to an all-powerful world government.”

We’ve used U.N. authority (and North Atlantic Treaty Organization and Southeast Asia Treaty Organization, which are part of it — Articles 51-54) to be involved in Korea (never settled), Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Somalia and others. To what gain?

Also, the U.N. continues to acquire power in nearly every phase of human existence.

Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., has introduced the American Sovereignty Restoration Act to repeal the UNPA and end our U.N. membership in two years. This measure deserves the support of all who value freedom and independence.

Contact your senators and representatives (simple online — just type their names) and ask them to support or co-sponsor the American Sovereignty Restoration Act.
