I agree with Teaparty1, "get the US out of the UN and get the UN out of the US"
Because I like the 2nd amendment. I like private property. I like my right to practice religion (even if I don't exercise it). I like the separation of church and state. I like the U.S. Constitution (well most of it).
I do not like a one world government. I do not like its human rights policies (or complete lack thereof).
I certainly don't think we need it.
The UN is stupid. It is literally the biggest waste of money for the United States. The United States provide a huge amount of their funding so they can go and tell people dont commit war and thats it. No military action. And then they tell the US what to do. The UN is a waste of time and money and the headquarters should be moved to europe or another country that is willing to pay billions of dollars a year for a inefficient, ineffective organization
@Heterodox I think your a little misinformed about how the UN actually works. Most Resolutions, although they can be created by the main body, are either issued by the Security Council or the General Assembly. All the issues you just listed as things you are worried about losing would fall under the General Assemblies jurisdiction. But nearly all General Assembly resolutions are Non-binding, meaning that they are more of a "recommendation" than anything like a law. It is up to each individual nation if they actually want to follow the resolution (the US is actually up their in the number of resolutions we haven't signed or followed). So, in actuality, the UN can't make the US do anything it doesn't like.
Now the Security Council resolutions are binding, but the US is a permeant member of the council, so we can just veto anything we don't like. The US has much greater control over the UN than the other way around.
@58539672 you are right about that but the UN is not only a huge wast of money but it also has helped out terrorists such as Bin laden, and the terrorist groups in Gaza. They may denied it but if you look at it closer they have, they are a fours for evil in this world today.
@BIGC Im a little confused on the instances you use. By supporting Bin Laden, do you mean when the US and NATO funded him and several other mujahideen to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan, or are you referring to another incident? And as for Gaza (Hamas is what I am assuming your referring to), they receive the bulk of its military support from Iran and the majority of its humanitarian aid and funding from the US, not the UN.
@BIGC Well that is still a vague answer. All the instances I listed above were carried out by other organizations and countries, not the UN. So it is simply wrong to blame the UN for these actions. You also said, "and more" which is still very vague. Do you have anything in particular in mind?
