Tell Congress: Do not bail out the Ukraine!

The Ukraine is asking the United States and the European Union for $35 billion in foreign aid ...

On February 24, 2014, the Ukraine began petitioning the United States and European Union for $35 billion dollars over the next two years.

According to a report, the Ukrainian Finance Ministry is looking for the first alotment to be distributed by the week of March 9, 2014.

From Reuters:

"In an address to the nation, [acting president] Turchinov on [February 23, 2014] spelled out the enormity of the task facing Ukraine's new leadership, and identified stabilising the economy as a priority.

Against the background of global economic recovery, the Ukrainian economy is heading into the abyss and is in a pre-default state," he said.

"The task of the new government is to stop the country's slide into the abyss, to stabilize the exchange rate, guarantee the timely payment of salaries, pensions and stipends, and to regain the confidence of investors, promote the development of enterprises and the creation of new jobs."

This said, the Ukraine is asking the United States and European Union to bail them out of their economic and debt problems.

While the humanitarians will likely herald American aid to the Ukraine, a taxpayer-funded bailout of that country would be not only unconstitutional, but unwise.

The United States simply has no money with which to bail out the Ukraine, and Congress must block any "emergency" aid from flowing in that country's direction.

George Washington said in his farewell address that America should steer clear of interweaving its "peace and prosperity" with the toils of foreign nations; Thomas Jefferson said in his second inaugural address that the United States should "entangle alliances with none."

These words are still true today and we need to make DC listen!

Take Action! Add your name below and sign and send a message to your U.S. Representative and Senators demanding that they oppose this emergency aid to the Ukraine!

We have no business becoming involved in the Ukraine mess; there is no threat to our national security. Need I remind you of the mess we created in Egypt, Libya, Iraq due to ineptitude in formulating foreign policy?

The Ukraine is already bankrupt to you know who, and any package would go to Russia as payment on the debt. So there is no way out of this for Ukraine, but maybe the U.S. might put a military base there and that would save the Country for about 24 hours.

America needs to oust our biggest threats from our Whitehouse and to clean house when it comes to politicians in Washington, D.C., who have over-stayed their welcome and become a major part of our nation's current problems. We also need to return to the Judeo Christian Ethics upon which our nation was founded by our forefathers in order to restore our nation back to the strong foundation that it was built upon. We need to once more unite as a people "under God with liberty and justice for all" and not permit small groups of peoples to try to circumvent our United States Constitution along with our Bill Of Rights. We cannot allow those who currently control our Whitehouse and now maintain a stranglehold on our U.S. Senate to continue to do their corrupt business as usual with total disregard for morality and truth while they completely ignore those who elected them to office--We The People! The politicians now in Washington, D.C., no matter what party they claim to be a part of do not have the best interests of our people or our nation at heart since they are all part of the systems of lies and theft that is now ruling over our nation! We need new blood in Washington, D.C., those who will uphold our nation's rule of law and not seek to destroy what our forefathers worked so hard to build and so many have given their very lives to maintain. This November 4, 2014 let us all go to the polls and vote for not the liars and thieves who desire to complete Obama's total destruction of our nation but rather for those who a truly conservative and believe with all of their hearts and souls in our nation's Constitution and Rule of Law--instead of the bunch of lawless Senators and Representatives who now reign over our U.S. Congress. Do your research, ask questions and truly seek to find out the truth about all of those running for political offices and do not just swallow their political rhetoric that they keep feeding to all Americans like a farmer feeding slop to his hogs and them just chugging it on down without a single pause to consider what kind of lies it is filled with. We are in no real position to help our allies around the world until we are able to get our own house back in order by throwing out all the lying bums which now inhabit Washington, D.C. and restoring honestly and truthfulness back to our halls of justice!
