GET THE U.S. OUT OF THE U.N.! Well, wait it may not be that simple. The Soviet Union tried this and while they were away, many things that they did not support got passed. The US needs to stay in the UN simply to veto things that would go against us. The only way the US should get out is if the entire UN is dissolved.
We should stop paying and let the UN figure out how to come up with the $3 billion the US is expected to pay. Yes you saw the numbers correctly, 3 BILLION DOLLARS! BUT that’s not the most disturbing figure to me.
CNS reports: American taxpayers will pony up around $3.024 billion this year towards the United Nations’ regular and peacekeeping budgets, more than what 185 other countries combined are paying, an expert on the international body told U.S. lawmakers on Wednesday.
While the U.S. contribution in 2015 to the U.N. regular budget is $621.9 million, the 35 countries contributing the least will pay just $28,269 each, Heritage Foundation scholar Brett Schaefer told the Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee responsible for multilateral institutions. Where the U.S. will pay $2.402 billion towards the separate peacekeeping budget, the 20 countries contributing the least will pay just $8,470 each.
In recent years, the methodology used for the U.N. “scale of assessments” – the formula determining how much each member-state pays – has “increasingly shifted costs of the organization away from the bulk of the membership onto a relative handful of high-income nations, particularly the United States.”
–More than half the U.N.’s membership will be assessed less than $1 million each for both budgets (compared to $3.024 billion for the U.S. alone).
–The 119 members of the Non-Aligned Movement together will account for around $490 million (compared to $3.024 billion for the U.S. alone).
–The 56 countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) – which include 10 of the world’s 20 top oil-producing nations – will together contribute around $360 million (compared to $3.024 billion for the U.S. alone).
–The other four permanent members of the U.N. Security Council – Russia, China, Britain and France – will together account for around $2.523 billion (compared to $3.024 billion for the U.S. alone).
At the risk of being redundant, “Get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US!” That God forsaken, Anti-American, Anti-Freedom, Hedonistic Hellhole that is called the UN is and has always been a Communist Tool designed to disrupt America and those nations that actually value Freedom and Capitalism.
Where does the money go? Are we paying countries not to attack us? Sounds like blackmail to me. Why do rich oil countries need any of our money? Even with the discrepancy between us and the “oil producing” countries, gas prices are still too high.
Eviction notices need to be passed to all occupants in the UN building and turn it into a homeless shelter, help our citizens first for a change! Then at least the land would be put to good use for people, instead of a “bash US” organization. The UN is a complete fraud. There is nothing united about it, other than their United hatred of the US, Israel and other US allies.
Share if you agree it’s time to get out of the U.N. and concentrate on healing our own country! GOD BLESS!
