We should be funding the U. N. the same as we should be funding the ARAB States "NOT AT ALL".

As we pray for the Lord to guide us in choosing godly leadership for our land, may this video on the impact of prayer in determining the future of a nation be an encouragement to you.
You put your money where your heart is....this is where Obama's heart is.
Not with YOUR appendage!!
It is called inflation. We technically havent given anymore money of value, just enough to cover inflation.
You haven't PAID for anything in years. Only passed on some debt. UN likes to have more debt to pass along, and they can have it as soon as WE get REAL MONEY. Hook 'em up with the fed. After we get REAL money.
I sure would like to know what financial benefits this country's politicians are receiving that they don't remove us from the worthless United Nations? There is always a money trail somewhere?
We need to kick the U.N. out of America
