I think my opinion is pulled by my bias. = I'd like the US to withdraw from the UN and consider forming a United Capitalistic Democracies. Seems to me that would actually and factually a more influential body? Since it would consist of the richer countries - richer in more ways than money. Anyway, I'd like to hear the back & forth here. Some simple info with a lean towards evicting the UN : The UN building sits on superprime property, 18 acres, waterfront on the banks of the East River. It's a great neighborhood, except too many foreigners with family congregate there. They have diplomatic immunity wherever they are. So they skirt our laws. The UN has been there since 1953. There are "branch" UN buildings in Nairobi, Geneva, Vienna. The building is 39 stories high. Eviction could be their last story. Once we're withdrawn UN edicts will not apply to the UN of Capitalistic Democracies. The US now pays 3.3 billion to the UN - not including the monies$ for parking fines we don't get. The US has no jurisdiction over the individual offices in that building. Do we get worthwhile info by illegally spying on them? Do they not import their customs into the community? At least that mindset?
