The UN, and the rest of the world will sooner or later get tired of the American BS and just kick them to the curb, or at least should. As for what would happen if America Left? Like they follow the rules now? So the answer is really nothing would change, merely easier accounting.
America has and always be a very valued ally, in terms of it's people. As for it's government and the leemings that follow it, the sooner that falls the better. IMO.

Passerby, you just can't seem to follow either the bouncing ball or the money trail, can you? You should do a little research before you go shooting your mouth off. Start back at the beginning of the last century; that's a decent place to start to get the U.N. picture. Better yet, don't bother; I'll do the work for you and send it to your email next week, ok?
