My belief is that the main thing hampering the UN now is the one country/one vote idea. Since there are so many countries in Africa and the number keeps increasing (e. g., South Sudan) these guys tip the general membership in favour of Africa.

The U.N. is a HUGE waste of of money and other resources and should be disbanded immediately. U.S. taxpayers pay FAR TOO MUCH for this useless, corrupt organization.
