    Seriously---haven't we passed the point where we can expect anyone to listen. They don't even pretend to listen until election time rolls around anyway.

    Despite him not listening, I continue to pester my Congressman. I hope he hates me. Well, his staff anyways.

    Worth a shot I reckon but I'm pretty sure the issues have all been taken out of the hands of the people.

    Let's see. Before the UN, two world wars in 20 years.

    Since the UN, no world wars.

    I'll agree that one couldn't prove this was because of the UN, but I'll take my chances with success nonetheless.

    And nobody's saying "abolish the UN." We're saying it's time for America to get out of the UN because it erodes our sovereignty and costing the citizens of our country too much. If others wish to continue funding and participating in the UN then that's their choice.

    However, I don't give any credence to your thoughts that the UN may be what's stopped another World War. I look more towards nuclear capability and the fact that nobody really wants to enter into a conflict of that size if it means that they could be nuked.

    If the US gets out of the UN its effectively abolished because we're the big gun. I don't see that it particularly erodes our sovereighnity. How so? The UN did not support our attack on Iraq and we went right ahead and did it anyway.

    How does the UN hurt? I think it is beneficial to have a forum where leaders of the world can meet and express their views, even those of states that don't have dipolmatic ties with one another. I think there are lots of UN agencies that do some good, tho' I'm not an expert on the subject.

    Why would you think that the nuke situation would be any better without the UN?

    How much does it cost the US per year? 1/10% of Govt expenditures or less I'd bet.

    Well, if it goes under without the support of the US I have no problem with that either.

    I don't think the nuke situation would be any better without the UN, but I don't see it getting any worse either.

    Here's a good article by Ron Paul from 2003 that talks about the UN.
