Russia and China have a veto and maybe it's either time to end that practice or give all UN members the same right. Level the playing field a bit. When you think about it, what good does the Security Council really do?
Should the US consider the idea of leaving as well? Join Canada and start working outside of the box. Will Canada leave, who knows, but with this Conservative Government anything is possible.

Below: This is from a Yahoo article about the subject. Problem is I can't link to the story, they just never work.So I will quote from the article. I will include a link from the National Post on the subject. Both articles are based on what a Federal Conservative had to say on the subject.
Just look at some of the ridiculous and mind-blowing decisions recently made by the UN:
Last summer, they named North Korea chair of a UN disarmament conference. That's North Korea, a country that has breached a number of arms embargoes and continues to make threats to expand its nuclear weapons program.
In September, the UN allowed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to address the General Assembly and spread untruths about the United States.
In November, while the international community was dealing with the human rights atrocities taking place in Syria at the hands of the Assad regime, UNESCO welcomed the embattled Arab country to its human rights committee.
And in February, Russia and China were allowed to veto a security council resolution that could have led to international military intervention in Syria.
