New York, N.Y. – It is time for the United States to pull completely out of the United Nations (UN). I will probably not have much argument from those who read our site, but it’s worth talking about. The UN is a pointless organization that is of no use to the United States. Let me explain.
The United Nations charter says that it has several focuses. It is to promote international peace and security, protect human rights, provide humanitarian aid, provide sustainable development and uphold international law. On every single element, the United Nations fails to do those very things.
On the front of international peace, the UN was put into the Middle East in the late 1940’s. It brags about it’s peace mission while based in Jerusalem. If you look at any news, the UN has not provided any peace in that area whatsoever. A complete failure.
Then we come to human rights. Let’s talk about the two most recent additions to the Human Rights Council. In February, Venezuela joined the UN Human Rights Council. Just a few days ago, China took a seat on the same council. Can someone please explain to me how either is worthy to be in a sentence referring to human rights? Especially with China’s issues that have presented out of Coronavirus. A complete failure of the UN to promote human rights by allowing either to be on this council.
There are 193 members of the United Nations. Of those, no one contributes as much as the United States. The US funds 22% of the UN budget. The next closest nation is China with 12%. No other nation contributes over 10%. As we contribute countless dollars, what return do we get on it?
Nothing. Absolutely nothing. We continue to spend more and become more involved in issues across the world. But there’s no benefit to it. The organization allows communist nations to be involved without holding them accountable for their human rights issues. Tell me how that promotes any of the organizations initiatives.
The UN has not been active in the North Korea situation. They have failed to help in the Middle East. The only thing the UN has done in the past several years is create a platform for mindless dictators and communists to openly criticize the US. So we’re funding nearly a quarter of the budget to be ridiculed. It’s time to pull out of the UN.
Since Gallup began polling on the UN, US citizens have long felt the organization did a poor job. Very few times in the history of the polling did the support actually go 50% or higher. The number of Americans who believed the group played a necessary role is on the decline. Why support something that the American people do not trust?
President Trump has not been shy about sharing his feelings. Many have been compiled here. He calls out how they have not supported Israel. They have not supported freedom initiatives that the US has taken on. The UN is a waste of American dollars.
Rather than continue to waste money on a pointless organization, lets back out. Let’s keep our millions of American taxpayer dollars at home. Just think of what could have been done for the economy if we had kept those dollars home. Think of the tax break that could be given to American workers if we withdrew.
But America will not withdraw. We will continue to throw money away in the name of “making the world better.” In the end, we’re making nothing better. The only thing we are doing is giving these dictators and communists a platform to push their agenda.
