In the aftermath of Brexit, Congressman Thomas Massie (Kentucky) posted on Facebook an image of H.R. 1205. The caption read, “Time for #amex? I’m a cosponsor of H.R. 1205 to get the U.S. out of the UN. #brexit”. When someone asked why it would be good to get out of the UN, Congressman Massie wrote,
“In one word, Sovereignty. As a member of the UN, we bind our citizens to decisions made by undemocratic countries, when in fact our constitution should be the supreme law.”
The Congressman is right on target. We need to support H.R. 1205, with phone calls and emails to our Congressman.
George Washington warned, in his farewell address, that entangling alliances would rob us of our independence. The UN creates a web of entangling alliances. If we want future Americans to celebrate our independence, we must get out of the UN.
