Since we are so deeply in debt and have countless issues to FIX ($$) in our own Country, why don't we simply stop giving money away to foreign countries?

Ralph, Every word U said makes total sense. It's mind blowing the lack of simple financial sense we practice. Who could imagine handling our own personal financial matters the way our Country does? Incredible.
Yes, Vince, I was thinking that too really, because how can we give away something we don't have?
Exactly! If we ran a business like governments run countries, we'd be bankrupt in seconds. Why don't they see that?
Vince & Theresa....Thank you for your valid contributions. We can all agree on this major issue!
The US gives aid to 96% of the worlds countries through economic and military assistance
It's against the TOS to self promote. Although I agree with your views, they lose credibility when you link responders to your article.
Do you know the "Make a hub about this question button"? I didn't self promote. I answered the question through HP's own button. That was the point of Q and A section. Go to a Q, click Answer, then look below box you will see "make hub about" button.
YES...I knew this. LOL
Well apparently some don't know. It's not self promotion to "make a hub" from a question. It was why the Q and A section was here to begin with. :) Surprised as long as TT has been here he/she didn't know that button was there. All good though! :)
Oops, TT.....this is built-in HP auto promo! You knew this, right??
TT....It is not justifiable.It's insanity. This is Y we ask this Q repeatedly & all feel the very same about the issue. So, listen up comrades..TT suggests we WRITE. Let's DO IT! Let's be heard loud & clear by the millions! I'm ready!
Ann....I can appreciate your like-concern. We all experience many of the same troubling issues & simply want solutions! Those in power continue to dig us deeper & ignore the obvious. It's time they EXPLAIN!
How are Mexican immigrants not paying taxes? Do they buy goods while in America? Paying taxes then. Do they hold down actual jobs? Paying taxes.
Read the post - illegal immigrants aren't paying taxes - stop splitting hairs with the sales tax thing. They don't pay federal or state taxes
Theresa.....Excellent Questions. Where are those who can answer?? We deserve so much better!
Yes, surely there are those in the know but are ignored by the powers at hand.
But we don't actually give Mexico any money. And the money that immigrants are making/receiving here isn't going back to Mexico - it's going towards housing and vehicles here in the US. Just look at the stats.
But yes we do give Mexico money and yes everything I said is true. Some of what you said is true. Some pay a little tax. How does it help the citizens because they buy new cars? It may help some businesses but not the American tax payer, never.
On 2013 the us gave over $50 billion to Mexico. Mexico's second largest source of income is remittances from the US. Michaela, do you ever research things or just make preposterous guesses ?
Thank you, Ralph!
You have a Social Justice Warrior on your thread, just drop the facts on her and watch her squirm
90% of the Mexicans send 90% of their money BACK to Mexico to their families, until their families can slip over the border too!
