this is about the constitutionality of foreign aid. In case you haven't noticed, there ARE arguments that foreign is indeed constitutional (I disagree).

The US WILL NOT end foreign aid cold turkey to everyone, get off that cloud.

We can EDUCATE others on the repercussions of foreign aid, and that will take time, but the only path to policy change regarding that issue is Rand's approach.

With the all or nothing attitude, especially regarding this issue, you'll end up with nothing. My goal is to help change things, not keep them the same...
