The UN is a worthless entity, intent on milking money from US taxpayers, and all the while attempting to usurp our freedoms. Disband them and the money could be used to care for America...first.
Get the hell out of the U.N., stop all funding.
This makes me Sick. After my bills our paid for the month we have 336.00 .to live on.
Joey, you got $36.00 more than me after my bills are paid, but fear not, I don't want your money. I want OUR money back from the UN. What have they done for the USA, or for that matter, what have they done...period?
Yes Sherman Iam not asking for anything .And iam not the top wage earner.And Iam voting for MITT.
Maybe you should read up on George Soros, how much does he give to obumma, the dems, all the libs. Maybe the rich are in a lower tax bracket, but I am sure they are still paying millions more then you are. Remember 47% of the people don't pay any taxes, so thats an even lower tax bracket.
So what, it is their money, why is the government giving out free cell phones, giving money to all these countries that hate us, wasting money on the EPA, wasting money on green companies, wasting money on the lazy people on welfare. Here a question for you, do you take any write offs on your taxes? If you do then, you to are not paying your fair share. There are legal deductions you can use and the rich use them, so what. Even if there was a flat tax, I think you would still cry " the rich don't pay a fair share"
