None of us chose to be a part of the UN, Dave. That was a decision that was made before any of us were born. However, if you read the words of the Founding Fathers, the idea of the US entering any kind of alliance with Europe would have been a considerably dangerous one.
I personally happen to disagree with our place in the UN, I don't think the organization should exist at all.
I don't know the number of times the US has deferred to the UN and I really don't care. I just know that many Americans don't agree that we should be a part of it.
We're the greatest nation in the world, what do we need the UN for?
