Foreign Aid

Give people what they want, when they want, and they want it all the time.

A hand up?

-The US has given out over $3.75 trillion in foreign aid (adjusted for inflation) since the end of World War II.

-As a wealthy nation, we have the ability to help others, but we should not borrow to do so.

-We should not attempt to buy compliance or "friendship."

Or a hand out?

-We should not prop up nations engaged in apartheid or conquest.  Brutal regimes should fend for themselves.

-We should not prop up prosperous nations at our own expense.

-Every dollar in aid must be accounted for.  We do not need to pay for lifestyle spending of rulers.
