That's right. Charity is one thing...but when the government...

...taxes us and gives it away in our name, that is THEFT.

The problem is that Americans have confused theft with charity because their government has indoctrinated them from an early age that foreign aid is "just part of what the government does."

Then they show the plight of the poor nations.

But the FACT is that foreign aid starts at the lobbyist level because many U.S. based businesses profit greatly from foreign aid.

That's because there is small print requiring much of the aid we give away to be spent on American goods and services (like Egypt who must spend 33% of their aid on U.S. made military weapons).

It's as immoral as possible to steal our tax money and have it end up being spent on weapons for foreign nations.

But the defense contractors laugh all the way to the bank.
