    Citing wasted tax dollars and attacks on the constitutionally guaranteed liberties of the American people, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.; shown) introduced a bill to restore U.S. sovereignty and withdraw from the United Nations. The effort to de-fund and exit the UN comes amid growing scrutiny of the global organization, often ridiculed as the “dictators club,” and myriad mega-scandals swirling around it. However, despite ever-growing support in Congress for restoring U.S. sovereignty by withdrawing from the UN over the years, the legislation still faces an uphill battle.

    In a statement last week announcing the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2015 (H.R. 1205), Rep. Rogers noted that many of his constituents in East Alabama would likely agree with his position that U.S. government participation in the UN should end immediately. “The U.N. continues to prove it’s an inefficient bureaucracy and a complete waste of American tax dollars,” the congressman said, echoing widespread concerns about the international outfit expressed across America and worldwide.

    “Why should the American taxpayer bankroll an international organization that works against America’s interests around the world?” asked Rep. Rogers. “The time is now to restore and protect American sovereignty and get out of the United Nations.” He cited attacks on U.S. liberties as a key motivation for the legislation.

    I bet he voted for the trade bill and its secret negotiations with 600 private companies. Talk about being against the country's best interests.

    The US supplies over 500 million dollars to the UN.

    My suggestion - reduce that by 100 million for the next 5 years.

    Our contribution - should be no more than 5% of the total that the UN recieves.

    What we should do is get out of the UN and kick them out of the country.

    The World Court can then take up those Human Rights violations.

    Proving then that they unlike you are not racist against our Black President.

    No doubt you would be afraid to go to the White House because there is a Black person there as you are afraid to go inside the beltway of Atlanta. :laugh:

    The US out of the UN and the UN out of the US. It should be moved to an Islamic state or a communist state.

    It is easier to keep an eye on things if it is based in the U.S. rather than on foreign dirt.

    It would survive or be reconstituted in some form. To think otherwise is Naïve. No offense intended.

    They may do something else but they need our money to survive as they are. If the "reconstitute" that would only prove my point as well. They cannot survive without us.

    The UN has turned out to be as useless as the League of Nations. It should be moved out of the USA.

    Why not put it in some poor nation such as Bangladesh?
