We'll just have to agree to disagree.

If you have to buy your friends, then they're not your friends.

I know a man from Senagal for instance, who grew up watching untold amounts of U.S. foreign aid go to their leaders - not them.

He has told me stories of food recieved from U.S. aid programs spoiling by the tons because of the inefficiency and corrupt nature of government aid programs - on both the giving and receiving ends.

You will never convince me that even one penny of U.S. foreign aid is necessary, moral or authorized by the U.S. constitution as it was written.

If you want to AMEND the Constitution to say that a proper role of our federal government is to give away American citizens' hard-earned money, then that's a different discussion.
