    How do you all feel about NATO? The United Nations? Should we be in or out. Do you really think that it helps us in some way? Mike.

    In 1958 Robert Welch of the John Birch society made a speach about the intention of the UN being to weaken America until we lost our soverienty. That speach is public domain and on the internet. EVERY single point that he made has come to pass. Since our debit is actually bigger than our entire economy, we have no legal right to demand soverienty. Between the internal destruction brought on by the democratic socialists and the unending expense of trying to make islamists civilized, we have lost.

    I hear so many Americans complaining about the United nations and all you are doing is complaining about an organization that was the brainchild of the US President Franklin D Roosevelt in 1942. The UN was foisted on the rest of the world by the US in 1945 so as the old saying goes " You reap what you sow " Maurice ( The Brit. )

    Maurice, The UN was an afterthought, the original thought was "The League Of Nation" devised and promoted by Woodrow Wilson, but never ratified by the Senate after WWI. Wilson was a Progressive and advocate of a one world government. He may have gotten the concept from someone else or multiple people. Maybe, someone can comment on that.

    For the NO GOOD that the UN does, close its doors, remodel the building for low rent or small business's!!

    The UN has done only one thing, drain off US taxpayers dollars and enriched third world thugs!!

    The extortion,raping,starvation and enslaving people's is past Appalling!!! The SAD thing is WE have stayed a member!!and have given the thugs our Blessing!!

    NATO, have not made up my mind on it YET.

    Let's not forget that the UN wants to totally disarm us. Supposedly, Hillary, at the behest of big O, is in negotiations with UN to bring about the small arms limitation treaty...and that means your personal firearms. Wish we still had John Bolton there as our ambassador.

    I have no respect for the UN as it now is. And I was brain washed about it when I was a kid.

    shot410ga, the forerunners to the United Nations were the " Concert of Europe " which was formed after the Napoleonic Wars in the 19th century, then there was " The Inter Parliamentary Union " formed by international peace activists William Randal Cremer and Fredieric Passy in 1889. The League of Nations came into being at the end of World War 1 and it was a complete failure with Germany, Japan, Spain and a number of other nations pulling out in the 1930's. The United Nations was not an afterthought but was an effort to establish a functional organization to prevent major world conflicts, but as we all know it is flawed and not very functional. Be that as it may it is the baby of the US. Maurice ( The Brit. )

    Rick Barker, The US never did control the UN and should not control it. Although the formation of the UN was pushed by the US it was to be and has to be a equal partnership between membership nations. God help us if the world was ruled by the one nation. Maurice ( The Brit. )

    Rick, I agree with you in regard to the UN being useless and dysfunctional and I believe should be discontinued. As to the US paying more than any other nation I must bring to your attention that The US is in arrears in its contribution to the UN and has been for years. Maurice ( The Brit. )

    Take a look at the operating budget for the UN. We pay almost ALL of the expense, yet groups from 3rd world banana republics band together to disallow our right to vote on issues. Look at who pays with the most lives lost. Remeber, it was Butros Botros Galli the UN commander who knowingly let our boys die in Mogadishu. Time to get US out of the UN!
