Wow, look at all the comments, thank you, and please do not forget to share at other sites and with your friends.

If we all said it was purely symbolic, we are all making it symbolic and won't have a chance of passing it. 

Comment by Harry Mathews on February 2, 2019 at 7:14am

A purely symbolic gesture which has not the slightest chance of success

Comment by Nan M Nicoll PC Mohave Mesa 02 on February 1, 2019 at 10:22am

Great discussion on bilateral trade agreements. With our Republic we should only have bilateral agreements.

Comment by Patricia Gillenwater on February 1, 2019 at 1:51am

I would say I would totally support this bill and will thank our own Andy Biggs for co-sponsoring.

I will encourage R's on the House Foreign Relations to support.

Quite honestly folks do you really think for a minute that the bill has a chance to ever pass the House much less be moved out of the committee with positive approval?

Comment by Walter Myers on January 31, 2019 at 7:10pm


This would be one of three steps needed to return America's sovereignty. The remaining steps would be to bring our monetary policy out from under the 5th plank of the Communist Manifesto and into compliance with the Constitution and to shed America and Americans of the ungodly and unconstitutional debts theoretically owed as a result of present policy.

It's about time. The money used to support the worthless UN can be used to build the wall!

Comment by Barbara Smith on January 31, 2019 at 12:22pm

The problem is, the deep state likes this!  I love the idea & think it should be a no-brainer for any true American but then again how many of the powers that be are?  Patriotic American lovers, that is!

About time.  This is decades overdue.
