It's obvious we, as a country and as citizens, are mired in financial difficulty. Unemployment is too high, home foreclosures are too high, our debts are too high, and excess amounts of labor are exported to other countries. We need to address this issue promptly.
One alternative may be to dramatically reduce our foreign aid to other countries. We are in a jam and need to cut back our expenses -- just as we have to do at our homes.
Let us help ourselves by reducing foreign aid by at least one half. We can't go on helping other countries when our own citizens are hurting so much. Put that foreign aid savings in domestic programs relieving our debt, unemployment, foreclosures, etc.
What is your response to reducing foreign aid using those dollars to relieve some of our financial mess? We request your answer.
