Your absolutely correct. The UN is nothing more than a money pit for the Socialist. We don't need an ambassador to the UN we need to GET OUT OF THE UN!!
As long as the UN exists, the USA has to remain involved and flexing our muscle from within.
It sounds resolute to say "get the UN out of the USA and the USA out of the UN', however, that corrupt group of grifters would have more power, not less by our absence.
The void we leave would be filled with Putin, Chirac and Schroeder. Can we afford that?
Otherwise, I share your sentiments.
