This would be interesting. I don’t think there would be many tears shed if the US left the United Nations. I mean there’d be no more model UN conferences for nerdy high school kids (like I was) but these kids will find something better to do.
The UN is a waste of time and money – at best. Remember this is the same organization which allows Saudi Arabia, home of public beheadings, stonings and other horribleness to sit at the head of the Human Rights Council.

Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) is pushing for the United States to leave the United Nations. Dubbing the proposal ‘Amexit,’ Massie has signaled his desire for the House to vote on a bill which he has cosponsored. That bill, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act, would allow for the United States to leave the United Nations.
First, the bill would stop United States payments to the United Nations. Currently, the United States spends around $8 billion on the United Nations through mandatory and voluntary contributions. The bill would only allow those funds to be used to “facilitate termination of United States membership and withdrawal of United States personnel and equipment.”
Second, the bill would prevent United States forces from serving under United Nations command.
