A Pledge for GOP Presidential Contenders: Repudiate the U.N. Wholesale

United_NationsThe Associated Press observes that “bashing” the United Nations has become popular among Republican presidential candidates, and that it “seldom fails as an applause line,” meaning such rhetoric resonates with voters.

Mitt Romney says the U.N. too often becomes a forum for tyrants when it should promote democracy and human rights. Newt Gingrich pledges to take on the U.N.’s “absurdities.” Herman Cain says he would change some of its rules. Rick Perry says he would consider pulling the United States out of the U.N. altogether.

Great. But they should do more than softly condemn this organization and “consider” disassociating with it.

The U.N. is a fundamentally corrupt institution that supports tyrannical regimes and terrorist groups across world—from giving a platform to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his efforts to annihilate Israel, to granting the Palestinian Liberation Organization membership in UNESCO, to appointing North Korea as the chair of the Conference on Disarmament. The U.N.’s actions are consistently pro-tyranny and anti-America.

A Republican presidential candidate who cares about freedom and America would not merely criticize the U.N. or consider pulling the United States out of the tyrannical cesspool. A candidate who genuinely loves liberty would set forth a formal plan now, during his campaign, for disbanding this gang of tyrants and enablers, defunding it, and kicking it out of America. And he’d pledge to begin pursuing this goal unwaveringly and to the best of his ability, immediately upon taking office.

    The fundamental corruption of the U.N. is its “charter”.  That “charter” is a criminal plan and the U.N. is a criminal organization run by crooks.  We’re a party to that by being in it and having it on our soil.  We should get out of it, sure, but then arrest all its “officials” on criminal charges and impound all its “property” which is on U.S. soil.  If it pops up again, with a similar charter, outside the U.S. & its territories, it’s on the same notice that the “gvts.” of a few other countries should be on.  (There are 1 or 2 other “gvts.”, still, that should’ve already been destroyed.)

    Would our leaving the U.N. cost us vital world influence?  No.  We’d lose lots of criminal influence and gain the prospect of gaining lots more cultural world influence, minus criminal influence, consisting of capitalism, economics, production & trade and all kinds of social influence, with whoever wants such things.  But, we’d defend ourselves against any crooks and all criminal organizations, including those running countries, with our own military power, just as the individual and all private entities defend themselves, in the U.S., with our own police forces.
