Ron Paul's policy for foreign aid:$0 across the board. Nobody gets anything.

This is how it should be. Why are we spending our tax dollars to pay the interest on the loans taken out by the Federal Government just to give that borrowed money away to another nation that is not going to pay us back anyways?

We give billions out every year in foreign aid, and what do we get? A freaking headache. Screw that, my pocket is closed. Want to give money away? How about you give to the American people who are rightfully paying for it anyways.

Why China? About 6 months ago or so, they devested 97% of all US Securities they were holding. They sold them back to the Federal Reserve.

They owe us nothing. American companies have flocked to China and India at incrediable rates because they don't have to abide by any regulations. This enables companies like Mattel to ship back to the US lead painted products, dangerous childrens toys etc. and get by paying workers pennies on the dollar. Yes there are as many Chinease and Indian workers profiting from US companies as there are US citizens. We definitely don't need to send $$$ to these countries they are already taking them..........
