Save $ Kick the U.N. out of U.S.A.

Despite what the leftist elitists liberals of the Northeastern states, Washington D.C., Kalifornia, and waterlogged brain Washington state Dems "FEEL" how great the U.N. is...The rest of us in what they derisively call "flyover country" abhore the U.N. Their behind closed locked door(s) shenanigans dictacting & demanding treaties that smack the face of the U.S. Constitution and trample The U.S. Bill of Rights is unconscionable. Especially when one mulls over the fact that the U.S. State Dept. plans to increase spending on the U.N, in FY 2014, by @ 4% to a minimum of $3.6 Billion (Yes that's a "B") Think about all the other things that could be done with that $3.6 Billion if it weren't going to the U.N. Improve our highways and bridges. Or update & secure our power grid. Or provide all the ALL the medical care our wounded and disabled veterans rightfully earned. I could go on and on. This is just a small example of why the U.S. should withdraw its support and membership from the U.N. Then the U.N. should be be kicked out of the U.S.A. altogether with a U.S. gov't. forfieture of all U.N. buildings its contents. The U.N. buildings and its contents should then be autioned off. Unfortunately that wouldn't make a dent in the money the U.S. has paid into the U.N. over the past 50 years courtesy of Mr. & Ms. U.S. Taxpayer. Enough is enough "Kick the U.N. out of the U.S.A."

Kiss it away.

Summary: The U.N. is no longer the U.N. It no longer represents its original purpose. It is controlled by a 3/4 population that has self-interest as its purpose; which is NOT the furtherance of liberty, equality, and fraternity, but rather religious intolerance, inequality, slavery, and strife. The solution is easy; it is the courage it takes, that is at issue. We are taught not to sit in the company of fools. Does not every nation that values freedom, democracy, and humane rights lend, by their membership, credence and support to a majority that do not do likewise for them? It is incumbent upon every God-fearing, God-loving, Democratic and Free country to withdraw their membership from the U.N., that is no longer the "United Nations." Now, is the right time. These newly withdrawn nations should then form a new U.N. called "Union of God-fearing, God-loving, Democratic and Free Nations." God's majority.

Where would Israel be without the UN?

UN bashing is so popular, not just within the Jewish world and not without reason from any place in the political spectrum. This sad excuse for a world forum has become a caricature of itself and often seems little more than an increasingly festering betrayal of its founders' dreams. That said, we must -- yes, must -- always remember that the UN continues to provide Israel with incontrovertible legitimacy and membership in what still passes as the sole recogniized family of nations. Resolution 181 remains a bedrock of Israel's existence and a keystone to Israel's survival as a democratic Jewish state. Ignoring these realities can only increase Israel's peril.

Wow.

The UN is Israel's keystone? And bedrock?

Huh, and here I am thinking and believing Israel's keystone and bedrock are Torah and God.
