The U.S. needs to get out of U.N. and go its own way



I have been watching and listening to the news over the last several months, and it has reaffirmed my belief that the United States needs to remove itself from the so-called "United" Nations and let them take themselves somewhere else rather than stay in this country.

I seriously believe that if a referendum was held today, the majority of Americans would vote for leaving the United Nations and directing them to hit the road from this country. We have been the main financial and military support for this organization for too long and have received little or no thanks for the effort.

The United Nations, the World Court and all the other world order groups can kiss my Southern behind. If I could, I would stop every dime of my tax money from going to any of these subversive groups.

It is not the job of U.S. taxpayers to support and feed every country in the world, just because we work hard at prospering on our own. The people of these other countries need to stand up and demand action from their leaders and not expect our government to tax the heck out of us to feed them.

For the bleeding-heart liberals who think it can't be done by these people, Americans kicked the most powerful country in the world out and back across the Atlantic Ocean in the 1700s. The United States needs to go its own way in providing protection for our citizens and if our leaders feel we need to kick Iraq's backside, then be damned with what anyone else thinks. If they don't like it, then get in line to get their behinds kicked too!
