Why in the world would we do this. Why would we give up our position in this organization when we helped start this in the beginning. As a permanent member of the security council with veto power, we can help shape world policy. We may not always agree with everything the UN does, but that doesn’t mean we take our toys and go home. We stick it out and try to work through the tough issues and make some compromises for the better good. I know the word “compromise” is not very well liked in today’s political climate, but that is the basis for a democratic society and government. We sometimes have to give a little in order to make things better in the long run. To all my elected officials from Florida, don’t let this happen, it would be tremendously bad for our country and the world if we gave up our voice in the UN.
