Wednesday, January 13. Litchfield, New Hampshire. Though not “officially” in the running for the Republican presidential nomination, yet, Rand Paul has been making the rounds. In a refreshing, nationalistic tone, he informed a gun rights group that he would “love” to dissolve the U.N.
“I dislike paying for something that two-bit Third World countries with no freedom attack us and complain about the United States,” Paul said. “There’s a lot of reasons why I don’t like the U.N., and I think I’d be happy to dissolve it,” he stated.
And many conservatives across the 50 states said “amen.” Every U.S. citizen who is paying attention knows we provide the U.N. offices and pay the vast majority of the bill only to have the powers that be at the U.N. invite America’s enemies here to speak! $7 billion every year flows directly from taxpayers to fund the international organization.
What benefit does the United States gain from the hospitality and generosity it shows?….crickets. In practically every way on practically every day the U.N. acts against the interest of the United States. In its latest effort, the United Nations is rumored to be planning global gun control via treaties. Let us pray this does not reach the current POTUS who will undoubtedly attempt to support it.
Rand is a different man from his strictly Libertarian father, but it seems his beliefs are in keeping with those conservatives embrace. Senator Paul often calls for smaller government and larger freedoms for all. Dissolving the U.N., that’s just a bonus.
