I am far from being an economic genius, but in all the public discussions about the severe and critical economic woes of the United States, it strikes me as idiotic that this country is still giving foreign aid. Are we insane or merely crazy?
At the very least, it strikes me that the public should be telling senators and representatives in Congress to cut all foreign aid.
But wait. Maybe foreign aid should just be reversed. Isn’t it time for other nations that the U.S. has aided in the past to return the favor and give us foreign aid now?
Oh, I forgot. When "foreign aid" comes to the U.S. from foreign countries, it is called “buying the U.S. debt;” as in China buying up U.S. debts (and the nation), aided by NAFTA and CAFTA, which prohibit their companies from paying tariffs so U.S. companies need to move overseas to stay competitive. NAFTA and CAFTA should be abolished. And does China need “favored nation” trading status anymore? Did it ever?
While we’re at it, why not draft all illegal aliens to earn their citizenship by serving in Iraq for four years while they study for citizenship. And have welfare recipients serve on jury duty instead of those who work for a living.
The U.S. is being reduced to Third World status by globalism. We should withdraw from the United Nations, abolish the Federal Reserve and return to the prosperity we once knew when Congress and the Treasury ran the economy.
