The U.N. is a joke and should be dismantled altogether

The United States should maintain a presence in the United Nations, but act less like it is the major global power of the 21st Century while proposing actions within it.
UN is a joke and is structured in such as way as to accomplish nothing

Yes, and increase involvement. It's a global world duh
dismantle the UN
increase involvement and maintain support, the United Nations was created by us with the intent to foster contact and discussion between the U.S. and other world powers, and to prevent another world war. Abandoning it would be fool hardy.
Stay involved, but lend aid to countries when only available. Primary focus should be on repairing/improving the United States.
Use current presence to attempt to dismantle the U.N.
The US Should back the UN more
Begin balancing approach to foreign affairs without over-committing and taking over an issue.
The UN is the beast route to world peace. We need to be there to keep our say, but we don't need to be its army.
The UN is a do- nothing slimy scam...WE SHOULD GET OUT AND DISMANTLE THE ORGANIZATION...NO MORE FOOLING WITH THESE PEOPLD!!!
Increase involvement and support
The UN is broken. Major reform is needed. The US should work to dismantle and then rebuild it. There is no point in including countries that are not real democracies. They do nothing but poison the system.
End all U.S. involvement,including financial support in the U.N.
The General Assembly ought to have more power than the Security Council does. The Security Council does not represent the 'united nations'. It represents a very, very small percent of the world's nations. It is interesting that the Security Council is made up of the countries most responsible for black market gun and drug activity in the world.
U.S. should withdraw from the U.N. in its current status, and encourage a reformed United Planet.
maintain involvement but eliminate the extra support we provide like unreimbursed transportation and milirary support
Get rid of united nations all together.
US should declare the UN as unbinding on the US and its citizens.
Maintain presence, but work towards reforming UN and removing veto power for some countries (includes US). In the meantime, refrain from using veto.

Eliminate the UN altogether.
Reduce funding to the UN.
Keep our current involvement, but scale back the funding
The U.S. should increase involvement in the UN, pay our back and current dues and really take a cooperative role a a world leader.
Does it really matter? The UN is joke in it's current condition.
Yes, but stop being the U.N.'s pitt bull. We should not have to sacrifice our own alliances because the UN wants an action carried out.
Yes, but relinquish the financial and military responsibility.

Deal legitamatley with other nations as if they were populated with human beings like ourselves.
While the UN maybe a toothless organization with no real power, it is imporant that the US support the UN's role and institutions in order to promote peace and other common goals.
We should scale back our involvement to just the General Assembly and Security Council. We should require a dual mandate for military action on behalf of the United Nations, meaning Congress must also declare war in order to take action upon Security Council measures.
Work to maintain a dominant position in the U.N. until it can be dismantled.
The U.S. should increase its presence.
Yes, but reduce funding and understand that the UN does not have the best interests of the United States at heart. That body sees us as a cash cow and punching bag.
Stay in the UN only on the condition of drastic reforms.
Make the UN pay for itself on a flat fee per nation basis. If you pay the fee, you get a vote. End the reliance on extortion of funding from the U.S. and other industrialized nations.
Yes, but we should be paying less by now.
Yes. Loosing our permanent seat on the Security Council would be foolish. However, we need to scale back support and push for it to actually be an entity that is for justice and not a pawn of totalitarian governments.
Yes, increase un involvement and increased application of the bodies limits, requests and suggestions.
Yes, but they should realise that honouring UN decisions isn't optional - they apply to the USA too.
US should remember it is the problem

The US should continue to participate in all united nation's proceedings, while pursuing greater equity between rich and poor nations.
End all involvement and kick them out of the USA. Save billions.

We should increase our support of the UN as global peacekeepers.
Yes, but with the understanding that the UN is ineffective at best. We should politely ask the UN to seek a home elsewhere in the world. We will send an ambassador to the UN, but with little authority to act on behalf of the US.
Yes, but increase our involvement (give part of our standing army)
minimize financial support and let another country host it.
Disolve the U.N.
Yes, and increase the level of involvement at all levels
The UN is totally ineffective and a complete waste of resources.
At some point we need to pay more attention to world opinion. The end result after all will be global government.
While diplomatic discussion of world issues is acceptable, they should have no bearing whatsoever on military or economic actions.
The US should be the leader in building international coalitions of non-military programs to reduce poverty, oppose totalitarianism, and oppose censorship.
Get the U.S. out of the U.N. and get the U.N. out of the U.S.
