Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

Congress finds that the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note), signed into law on September 18, 2001, has been used to justify a broad and open-ended authorization for the use of military force and such an interpretation is inconsistent with the authority of Congress to declare war and make all laws for executing powers vested by the Constitution in the Government of the United States.

Effective 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note) is hereby repealed. <all>

For more than 11 years, our government has used the AUMF to justify everything from assassination and indefinite detention of American citizens to ever-expanding drone strikes and secret Special Forces operations in 120 countries. It's time to end this authorization for unjustifiable military force.

I support The Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force because... The United States Armed Forces have no business enforcing civil law under any circumstances. That is why we have: 1. Local Police 2. County Sheriff 3. State Police If Federal law needs enforcement we have: 1. Local Police 2.County Sheriff 3. State Police The County Sheriff has final say in his county who has jurisdiction and what agency will enforce the laws of that county. The federal police agencies (FBI and U. S. Marshall Service) are at the pleasure of the county sheriff, and if he says no, then they have zero jurisdiction in that county. Police officers, before being duly sworn, have got several months of schooling regarding the enforcement of laws, and the responsibilities of police officers and are familiar with local laws, ordinances, state and county laws, and ordinances, and have a pretty good idea on federal things, too. Keep the armed forces for conducting the actions of war and the police agencies for the enforcement of local (state, county, and city/community) law.

I oppose H.R. 198 because America.First in Texas's 22nd District is right. This bill needs to be modified to repeal the United Nations Charter and especially Article 25 of the United Nations Charter where the United States of America ideological liberal leaders historically follow the orders of the U.N. Security Council. After signing the U.N. Charter, the USA has been engaged in unwindable wars with Rules of Engagement (as established by the UN) to hamstring our U. S. Military and our Troops. The U.S.A. being engaged with the United Nations and the resulting loss of human life, without putting Americans interest first and the will of the people by bypassing Congress and The US Constitution. This has only produced empowered our enemies. Their ultimate goal of the Charter is to produce hate crimes against America to destroy America. The U.N.'s plan has succeeded and you continue to ignore the true root behind the loss of America's freedoms and the POTUS opposition to the U. S. Constitution by dumbing the education of Americans. “Intentional ignorance” is Treason, on the part of all Congresses, the U. S. Supreme Court Justices, and Presidents of the U.S.A. that has supported this.

I oppose The Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force because...the military has absolutely no authority to intervene into civilian situations to provide police action. The purpose of the military is the defense of the country not as a police auxiliary. The Govenor has the National Guard to call out to provide additional security of citizens not enforcing laws against them. Such actions leads to tyrannical utilizatiom.

I oppose The Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force because...this bill needs to be modified to Repeal the United Nations Charter and especially Article 25 of the United Nations Charter where the United States of America has agreed to follow the orders of the U.N. Security Council. Up to and including 1945, the U.S. has won wars. After signing the U.N. Charter, the U.S.A. has been engaged in unwinnable wars with Rules of Engagement (established by the U.N.) to hamstring our U. S. Military and our Troops. The U.S.A. being engaged with the United Nations and the resulting murder of human life has only produced enemies for America. It seems that their ultimate goal within the Charter was to produce hate crimes against America in an effort to destroy America. Well, the U.N.'s plan has just about succeeded and you continue to ignore the true root behind the loss of America's freedoms and the POTUS opposition to the U. S. Constitution.. You should be impeached along with the POTUS for ignoring the U.S. Constitution while siding with a foreign enemy to America. I call this Treason on the part of Congress, the U. S. Supreme Court, and the President of the U.S.A.

I oppose The Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force because, Congress should be consulted before any war is started. It's the separation of powers our Constitution supports, and Obama is abusing his authority completely. This should not be changed, but should be more strongly supported!
