Of course not. Not only does the government owe us trillions of dollars (We can thank every president since the 60's for this) but we're tossing our money all over the world.
Firstly, Reagan increased our national debt much more than even Bush has, I fail to see why everyone liked Reagan. As a matter of fact, the ONLY president to DECREASE our national debt since the 60's was Clinton but unfortunatly, all the good things Clinton did got ****ed up by Bush.
If that wasn't enough we're throwing money everywhere. We're the world's number one charity organization. We give tons of money out to poor and developing countries....why? I have always felt we should break off contact with the rest of the world in this sense.
People dying of AIDs in the Congo? **** 'em, they're dropping like flies with or without our aid. Why don't we use that money to help with the AIDs research in our own country?
People starving to death in Nigeria? **** them too. We have homeless and starving citizens as well. Thankfully not nearly as much as Nigeria but it doesn't matter, we shouldn't be helping others when we still need to help ourselves.
People being oppressed by a tyrannical dictator? **** them more. Why should we have anything to do with it? We should do what every other country does and sit back and watch the oppression from the sidelines, perhaps grab some popcorn and a soda. It isn't our problem so why the **** do we always make it our problem? Everytime we go out of our way to stop localized evil we get dirty looks from the rest of the world. The world didn't much like what we did in Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, and they damn sure don't like what we're doing now. I say localized evil because if someone is trying to take over the world (instead of ****ing over the people in a country or two) then it is our problem. If there is another Hitler running around trying to take over the world, we should stop him. Unless of course it's us who's doing it, then we should fight even harder. The problem of opression will fix its self when the people either overthrow the leader themselves, or the leader dies of old age and his replacement isn't a prick. How long will that take? Could be 10 days, could be 10 decades. Eitherway.....not our problem.
To sum up my post for those of you who can't read more than 3 lines:
We should stop throwing our money away to "just causes" because if we stopped supplying aid to all those 3rd world/AIDs infested/opressed countries today, in ten years the only difference we would see is more money in our pockets to spend on productive things like fixing domestic problems and finally developing fusion power.
