Broun Remarks on the United Nations’ 68th Anniversary
U.S. Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) today released the following statement regarding the 68th Anniversary of the United Nations. On October 24th, 1945, the United Nations was formally established with the ratification of the United Nations Charter by the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. Congressman Broun has introduced H.R. 75, the American Sovereignty Act, which would cut all U.S. ties with the United Nations, and end all U.S. participation in its functions.
“This week marks the 68th birthday of the United Nations, and it is my hope that this will be its very last,” said Rep. Broun. “I’ve consistently fought against the United Nations’ efforts to overturn our constitutionally protected freedoms, and my American Sovereignty Act, a bill originally authored by my good friend Ron Paul, would end our struggle with the United Nations once and for all. It’s time we get the U.S. out of the UN and the UN out of the U.S. I am hopeful that my colleagues will take up this bill so that we can work towards strengthening our nation and the principles it was founded upon.”
