    Israeli nukes?

    Buying off the President Mubaraks and King Abdullahs of world?

    Feeding africans?



    If I had a choice I'd want 0% of this forced out of my income, what about you?

    the same, but you might want to edit the question so it's alittle clearer.

    If you are saying cut off all foreign aid. I agree. It's time. And most of all why are we still supplying troops to South Korea, Germany, England, etc etc etc,, get all those troops and equipment home and put them on our unsafe borders.

    Great post, even with how unsafe our borders are we would only need a fraction of those troops to make it safe.

    I want ZERO percent until we pay off our national debt and get our defecit spending in line.


    Once we take care of those 2 things THEN we can start giving out aid to poorer nations such as the starving in africa or whatever else we have EXTRA money to spend on.

    No more foreign aid while we are in debt.

    Personally I'd rather never give any aid, leave that up to my choice in charity.

    I'd rather pay off the debt then have a surplus rather than only pay off our debt.

    However your view is still better than the overwhelming majority I hear.

    heh. I don't want a percentage of my pay check in anyones hands but my own. Then includes the free loaders here.

    As to foreign aid. Until there is no one left in THIS country that does not need aid, we have no business suppling it to others.

    That's a good question, none of that should come here on the flipside.

    At least not in terms of given to our gov't, I'm not talking about private companies.
