    lol. So thats where are debt came from. No wonder. We send money straight down the shitter when we sign those foreign aid checks. Then usually the shit comes back up the drain and gets us all dirty.

    Here's a wild concept. We only give support to nations that like us. See how long the world lasts and how quickly the tone changes when the checks stop coming.

    Welfare to foreign nations works much like welfare to our own systems. As soon a people figure out they don't have to work to get money, they stop working and focus their efforts on how to get more free money. Some African governments have entire committees devoted to getting more U.S. foreign aid while their infastructure crumbles and their people starve.

    In a way then, Leftities are right. America is the cause of all the problems in the world. By giving out to many free handouts to people that odnt need and and shouldnt get it. We've turned the world into a welfare state ripe for a China to pick clean over the next century.
