I believe we have carried the burden of cost and support for far to long, if the members of the UN don't care enough to support the organizations, drop it into another country and we can join their UN

I support H.R. 75 The American Sovereignty Restoration Act because the United Nations should not have any involvement or power over the rights of the United States citizenry.

I support H.R. 75 The American Sovereignty Restoration Act because it is time to separate ourselves from a organization that runs an out of control global army with intent of violating sovereign countries' rights. Our involvement will eventually lead to a stripping of our constitution and loss of our sovereignty. Our UN affiliation would not have had the approval of our founding fathers and it does not have mine.

I support H.R. 75 The American Sovereignty Restoration Act because the United Nations does not represent the views of Democratic Republics and we should not be funding their causes. Socialism can look elsewhere and fund their own causes.

I support H.R. 75 The American Sovereignty Restoration Act because I sincerely believe that the UN is filled with people that basically hate the United States. I see no reason for them to take up space in a country that they hate. Thank you for your consideration.

I support The American Sovereignty Restoration Act because...our sovereignty is crucial for our survival and true freedom, The UN must not be allowed to force and dictate their ridiculous ideas to push the insanity of one world order. This is all about control--not in my country--not on my watch!

I support The American Sovereignty Restoration Act because..we are a sovereign nation. Our government is elected by the people. The UN has been the center of big corruption scandals. Many of the countries are run by dictators & terrorists. The UN very often supports things contrary to American ways and interests. We owe them nothing. We should never let them dictate how we should live and do here in our country and we certainly should not pay taxes to support them. Nor should we allow them to take away our 2nd Amendment rights to bear arms. Nor should we ever allow UN military to enter our country. Russell Grewell, Bradenton, Florida.

I oppose The American Sovereignty Restoration Act because... as citizens of USA we should not be subjected to rulings of any other governing body. We are and should be governed by our duly elected officials which are to represent us for our ultimate good in world affairs, being guided in their decision by input such as this.

I oppose H.R. 75: American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2013 because while not perfect (but then neither are our own legislative houses) the United Nations provides a forum where by the nations of the world can attempt to achieve some consensus through grievances addressed in an open world forum. Since The United States was more than just instrumental in the establishment of the United Nations, our leaving would more than likely close the only open forum for addressing world issues. Please vote NO on HR 75.

I oppose H.R. 75: American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2013 because the U.N. refuses to recognize the Constitution of the United States as our Sovereign law that cannot be altered by treaty or agreement.

I oppose H.R. 75: American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2013. Since America was the catalyst for the UN and we host this organization in New York, I find it embarrassing that one of our elected congressmen could even propose this. America is one of some 200 nations that populate our planet. We may be the last superpower standing for now, but as Senator Fulbright cautioned 45 years ago, our ability to maintain this position of preeminence hinges on inspired domestic policies that keep us economically and socially strong at home. Such policies are not in obvious residence and we cannot continue to borrow to finance a militaristic foreign policy. I believe that our best future lies in diplomacy and a commitment to peaceful coexistence. Imperfect as the UN may be, a decision to withdraw from the United Nations would represent a step in the wrong direction. Power is shifting from West to East and those realities will have to be recognized within the UN. It would be inappropriate to just ‘pick up our marbles’ and go home. Please do not sponsor or support this bill.
