Because in the US we have documents called the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. They do not allow us to hand over our sovereign and supreme authority to an international court. It also outlines human rights, an appeals process (the ICC has none) and the role of our three branches of government, all which would be subrogated to an international court. So I wouldn't look for the US to ratify membership in the ICC anytime soon.
