STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Eleven

A RESOLUTION to urge the Congress of the United States to withdraw the membership of the United States from the United Nations so that the United States may retain its sovereignty and control over its own funds and military forces.

Whereas, the United States is the greatest nation in the world and is known for its compassionate people who are generous and kind in caring for the needs of those in other countries and whose resources are used worldwide to alleviate hunger and poverty; and

Whereas, the United States is called upon to defend the rights and freedoms of people in other nations as only it has the capacity to do as a world superpower; and

Whereas, these responsibilities create an immense burden on the citizens of this country, many of whom are in need and living in poverty themselves; and

Whereas, United States’ military forces are called upon to bear the brunt of any conflicts that may arise while other nations stay on the sidelines and expect the United States to fight those battles; and

Whereas, the United States provides the largest share of the financial burden of the United Nations, paying hundreds of millions of dollars each year that could be used to address many of the nation’s challenges, including homelessness, education, law enforcement, poverty, a strong military, and the war against terrorism; and

Whereas, many of the member nations of the United Nations are not friendly to the United States and support many things that are detrimental to this country and against its interests, yet expect the United States to provide the finances and manpower to solve all of the world’s problems, even putting the lives of this nation’s military forces in danger; now therefore be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the New Hampshire general court, acting on behalf of the citizens of New Hampshire, respectfully, but firmly, request that the United States Congress take measures to dissolve the membership of the United States in the United Nations, thereby freeing the nation from a large financial burden and retaining its sovereignty to decide what is best for this country as well as the steps that it considers appropriate to take as the leader of the free world, with full control of its armed forces and destiny; and

That the clerk of the house of representatives transmit duly authenticated copies of this resolution to the President of the United States, to the Speaker and the Clerk of the United States House of Representatives, to the President Pro Tempore and the Secretary of the United States Senate, to the members of the New Hampshire congressional delegation, and to the news media of New Hampshire.
