I think

our foreign aid is like our military bases around the world. Both are used as coercion tool - threat and bribe. Otherwise, our dollar would not be accepted by other countries as gold. But look around, no other country has free-market capitalism left. Smaller countries, who are dependent on global trade, cannot have sound money today if other countries do not follow. It is a team game now. And the world is in regressive mode as it rapidly reproduces and accepts progressive idea as in progressive disease.

Even Ron Paul had made a mistake - you cannot build a free society and multiply the poor via anti-abortion laws and open borders at the same time.
