Seriously. When I was a kid, I used to see John birch Society signs saying: Get US out of the UN. I really didn't pay too much attention to them. Now, the U.N. has become a major pain in the ass. They have an agenda that is no where near to ours. They are a liability. Does anyone have a good workable plan to get us out and get the U.N. to relocate?

I think most of the delegates want to stay here because their families can live and shop in New York. Maybe we could talk them into moving the whole mess to Paris. Then they'd be in a country they could bully and have a fashionable place to shop. Once they're out of the country, we could turn up the heat to leave.

Yes - the same way we got out of the League of Nations.

This is all there really is for US. It would be sweet to see dubya to tell them to go pound sand.
Leave UN

We should stay in the UN and ruin it from within.

Stop funding the UN, it'd dry up instantly

Right! If we stop paying, no more UN.

We, the United States put the "U" in UN. Without us, they are nothing. I'd love to see us withdraw from the UN and watch it totally collapse. We have always been the military muscle behind the UN and without us, they would be totally irrelevent.

Of course we all know that will never happen. The fact that we stay a part of the UN, in the face of their actions toward us makes me at least wonder if some of the tales of a conspiracy are true. At least as far as the One World Government stuff goes.

I see no reason for a nation like us to be a part of such a group. We aren't weak, we are the strongest nation in the world. We don't need the UN but they damn sure need us. Abandon it! Alliances such as these are for pussy nations who alone can't stand on their own two feet. That's clearly not us.

Folks, folks, folks....... As much as I hate the UN, the fact is we CAN'T leave the UN.

Let's suppose for a moment we tell them to get lost, and they relocate to Paris. What influence, then, would we have on preventing them from doing all kinds of nasty things to us and our allies if our veto isn't there? Do you really think that they wouldn't try to, just out of spite? Do you really think they wouldn't pool whatever money they COULD get to do it?

Let's face it, all they have to do is either stop buying our goods (most of them are so backward it wouldn't atter to them, and I'm sure LeMicrosofte would immediately step in) or cut off the oil.

Also, where else but in UN headquarters does the CIA and FBI have such a "target-rich" environment in which to recruit spies and detect spies within our own agencies. It's one-stop shopping over there, and I think the loss of the intel would be pretty drastic.

What we need to do is bring that bastard organization to heel somehow, but do so in a manner that WE are still able to thwart them should they get uppity.

Either that, or create an agency akin to the CIA dedicated solely to ensuring that the dismembered UN never, EVER can reunify somewhere else without us.

I still believe in Rush Limbaugh's Excrement List policy. You bad-mouth us, and you automatically get put on the Excrement List for 5 years. No aid of any kind, even if E.T. decides to stage a landing on your ass. After 5 years, IF you have behaved in a proper manner toward us, we'll CONSIDER giving you aid again. Any violation of that requirement automatically resets the 5-year clock.

THAT would get the world's attention FAST....

Ron Paul tried to get a bill through the House to withdraw the US from the UN.

It got 76 votes for it.

The unfortunate fact is that most of the sheeple believe that the UN is a good thing for international diplomacy.

I hate the UN!

Is there a realistic way to get us out of the United Nations?




Repeat after me:

"Screw you guys, I'm going home!"
