Before We Cut ANY Domestic Spending...Submitted by pawnstorm12 on Tue, 03/12/2013 - 14:52
...What about addressing the BILLIONS in FOREIGN AID our government gives away each year?
Shouldn't we end ALL foreign aid before ending one PENNY of domestic spending?
Shouldn't we end ALL foreign aid before closing down White House tours?
Shouldn't we end ALL foreign aid before raising the age of eligibility for Socialist Security?
Shouldn't we end ALL foreign aid before raising the payroll taxes for FICA, Medicare and Medicaid?
Shouldn't we end ALL foreign aid FIRST?
Anyone (like Mitt Romney) who says foerign aid is "good for America" is a LIAR.
Foreign aid is only good for U.S. military contractors who sell their equipment to foreign nations who got their money THROUGH U.S. FOREIGN AID!!!
And it's good for politicians like Lyndsey Graham who vote for it to get re-elected by the large military-based population of his state.
NOWHERE in our constitution does it authorize congress to TAKE MONEY FROM AMERICAN CITIZENS and GIVE IT AWAY to FOREIGN NATIONS.
I don't know why the citizens of the U.S. aren't up in arms about this - especially since every member of our congress took an oath to uphold (and adhere to) the constitution.
