United Nations acts irresponsibly

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe actions taken by the Trump administration with regard to the United Nations are long overdue. More should be done with less of our taxpayer money.I give the UN the benefit of the doubt that its inception was with the best intentions. I really don’t believe that, but I wrote it to make you feel good — another brick in the “road to hell.” Who could forget the League of Nations? That really worked. The UN is like our Congress and Senate in America. It knows right from wrong, but choses to act irresponsibility (partisan). Ditto the UN. It’s not a matter of money; it’s a matter of lack of character of the members.The fact that North Korea exists with all of its existing torments is a testament to the failure of the UN. There are other examples. The UN has no problem getting its “act together” when it comes to denouncing Israel and America. When I see a leader of a poor nation living in splendor, adorned with medals for who knows what, I know my tax dollars shouldn’t be going to that bottomless pit.Like Jesus, salvation in the material form is found within, not someone else’s pocketbook.As for the poor of other nations, let their affluent give till it hurts. They won’t. We need to fix our infrastructure, not the “shovel-ready” boondoggles of former President Obama. What difference does it make?
