Tell Congress: Re-Evaluate U.S. Foreign Aid

In mid-September, violent al Qaeda-related uprisings occurred in Egypt and Libya, the latter taking the lives of four Americans. 

In light of this tragedy, it is time for our government to reconsider our foreign aid expenditures: it is time for the American people to demand the U.S. Government to end all foreign aid to non-allied nations altogether, and review the funds pledged to allies.

Egypt is currently a Middle East ally of the United States; however, considering recent events, we must call our government to discontinue all aid to Egypt until they hand-over the aggressors responsible for the attack on our embassy.

Libya has historically not  been an ally of the United States and should therefore receive zero aid on that basis alone. If Libya has since become an "undeclared" ally, due to recent U.S. intervention into that country, they must also be prohibited from receiving foreign aid dollars for the same reason as Egypt.

Again, all U.S. foreign aid to Egypt and Libya must cease. America should never reward nations who are allied -- formally or informally -- with our enemies.

If we do not act and demand our elected servants to cut foreign aid spending, these two countries alone will  have received $3,117,850,000.00 U.S. Dollars by this year's end!

The United States has no business spending such an exorbitant amount of money on these nations -- we are deeply in debt and simply cannot afford it. (Keep in mind that the government will be forced to pay its debts; it will inflate, borrow, or tax its way "through" them.)

Senator Rand Paul has been a champion in calling the U.S. Government to reevaluate its reckless spending overseas. Though his bill S. 3576 failed, he has committed to continue to his push to curb U.S. Aid:

“When nearly 80 percent of Americans believe foreign aid should be reduced – especially to countries that are not our allies – it is inconceivable why their views are ignored by so many in Congress. I am far from defeated on this; I will continue to fight for this issue when Congress returns, and I will continue to call attention to the billions of American dollars – borrowed from China, among other places – being sent to governments that are not willing to respect and protect our interests overseas."

Now is not the time to give up on our efforts to cut foreign aid expenditures -- it is time to push harder than ever.

Take Action with Conservative Action Alerts and sign and send your petition to Congress demanding we END all foreign aid to non-allies, RE-EVALUATE foreign aid to allies, and PROHIBIT Egypt-Libya foreign aid, until they cooperate with the United States.

Can't the morons who come up with such idiotic ideas as to fund non-allies find better ways to waste our tax dollars ?

This has got to stop. Who is pushing this -, I can guess but the Muslim Brotherhood that is in this Gov. They are not what this country was founded on. I don't trust them. They have a goal that they are pushing down our throats. And I WANT IT STOPPED. They want to change our gov to their way. There will a fight before that happens. !!!

The US doesn't have money to safely put Americans on air planes, or open the WH doors to it's citizens. We certainly don't have enough to give away to those who use it to our demise!

Our Legislators are living in a surreal world where money means nothing and they can spend all they want on anything that want with no reprocussions. That time has passed. Foreign aid is a tool of the past. We can no longer afford to buy our friends, it never accomplished any thing anyway!!

Stop arming and aiding the insane muslim, terrorist, jihadists. Cut them off from every penny. Islam is loving? Well they love to kill at least. If you can't do your constitutional duty and protect our international borders we certainly can't afford to arm our enemies.

We indeed need to be out of giving any aid to non-allies. Please Re-Evaluate foreign aid to allies also, and Prohibit Egypt-Libya foreign aid. They are not cooperating with our United States at all.
