The UN has gotta go. Do you know how much of your money is spent on these diplomats?
Quarter of a Billion, every year.
If the UN was located in a country that needs financial help then maybe something will be accomplished because these world politicians will be forced to see and deal with the issues there.
Originally the UN was founded in 1945 after World War II to replace the League of Nations, to stop wars between countries, and to provide a platform for dialogue. But everyone knows it's just a bureaucratic cesspool. Where the building is located in Manhattan, is considered international territory.
At the time, having the UN located in the US was a proud moment for Americans to host the international community's talks of peace. It really made NYC the headquarters for many companies and organizations. It made the US into a major player. But I believe the UN has worn out their welcome and they need to go.
This is not a Republican or a Democrat issue; it is a policy issue that is incorporated into each administration. And I must reinforce, I am neither Republican nor Democrat. But I am a constitutionalists, meaning; I believe our government should follow the original constitution to the letter.
Why not put the UN in a country where their “power” could be more beneficial for a local country, like Afghanistan. Or maybe it could be hosted by countries for a particular length of time, like the Olympics. My point is; if they are going to be a giant, wasteful, bureaucratic organization, then send them to another country that needs the revenue these elitist diplomats have in their big pockets.
Wiki explains the criticisms:
And the US doesn’t need to hand out money to them anymore-we have our own problems. It's just my opinion.
