NATO is a pretty serious topic. It's existence and our membership in it has potentially the most serious consequences one could imagine. Unfortunately, most Americans and most visitors in America haven't a clue what NATO is all about and what role we have with it and as a member. We should absolutely positively without any qualifications withdraw from NATO. The benefits to belonging are outweighed by the potential disasters that come with being associated with it. Someone, please get us out of NATO! If after leaving NATO we want to make a treaty of some sort with individual countries on a country by country basis then we can consider it and weigh the pros and cons--one treaty per one country at a time. The treaty must be in our national interest or security as much as the country we might make it with.
