Why do we give away BILLIONS of American taxpayer dollars, to countries that HATE us?!

The United States government gives away HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of taxpayer dollars, every single year, to countries that HATE us!
Can anyone explain why we continue to fund these foreigners, when the foremost thought in their minds is to DESTROY us?
We just sent Libya approximately $1 billion, and what did we get for it?? Our Ambassador, and a former Navy SEAL, murdered, that's what!

We have people living in this country, who's income is at, or BELOW, the poverty level! And, yet we do NOTHING for them, aside from welfare programs that are a complete farce. I should know, my family spent a few years on those programs, until we were able WORK our way out of them!

How much good could we do, HERE AT HOME, if we were to stop giving money to countries that harbor terrorists? Or, to countries that pretend to be our ally one day, and the next are imprisoning the informant that helped put an end to one of the most despicable people in history? Or, to countries that threaten to "wipe us off the face of the Earth"? Or, to countries that "support" our efforts to clean up the drug problem, but can't keep their own military from helping those same cartels ship the drugs across the border?

Why does our government continue to support the rest of the world's population, but can't seem to help its own CITIZENS?? America is supposed to be the one place where you can achieve your dreams, but it seems, of late, that the American Dream is just that... a dream, nothing more. Work hard, be even mildly successful, and you get taxed as if you're the ONLY one with money. Come to America illegally, and you can get a scholarship to go to college... and, taxpayer-funded medical care, and food stamps, and free legal representation, and jobs that don't report taxes.
Be BORN an American citizen, who abides by the LAW, and you're already considered a privileged member of the global society... "Sorry, but you've already got it better than most. You'll need to work for that better education, and better livelihood!"
Commit a heinous crime that lands you in prison, and the American taxpayer pays for your college education, while you're behind bars. "Headed for death row? No problem, you've got years, maybe even DECADES, to appeal your conviction. And, you know what, while you're waiting, here's a free college education, so you can help with your appeal."
The hypocrisy has gone TOO FAR, and it has got to END!

If you agree with me, then, please, "rave" this post. And, please, by all means, pass this along to your friends!

    When it comes to giving away US tax payers money to non Americans,they need to have to get permission from the US taxpayers. Let us get the rules changed..

    So they will be our "friends." Do you remember all those shows that had the boy being beaten up, put in his locker, having his head flushed, if he didn't give money to those "bullies" wanting his lunch money? Yeah, we have now become that kid with the toilet swish hairdo.

    I agree with you totally. That money could go to those less fortunate or help pay down our debt. I know, that's crazy talk, but it'd be nice to see that $16Trillion debt start to go the other way for a change.

    I agree COMPLETELY... especially, considering that we owe most of that $16 Trillion to, of all things, OURSELVES!
  • txpatriot Stacy F 2012/09/14 15:24:53
    Right on!

    It's quite simple... those countries turn around and buy weapons from US manufacturers.

    Follow the $$$$$$.

    It's what our Plutocratic Masters want. Just one more way to siphon our wealth into their pockets.

    In addition to the usual humanitarian poop, one of the official reasons we bribe all of these backwards countries is so that they will continue to honor their extradition treaties with us, which is stupid because they want us to send their criminals back to them for prosecution just as much as we do.

    There is no good reason for us funding the primitive governments of countries that hate us.
