It’s a Mystery

Why does the rest of the world hate us? Ron Paul provides some clues when descibing a recent spending bill:

  • $638 million for the unelected Musharraf government in Pakistan;
  • $735 million to continue dangerous drug meddling in South America;
  • $150 million for development in Gaza, in addition to the billions we already give the Palestinians every year;
  • $95 million in new money for the United Nations Democracy Fund, which meddles with foreign governments but never seems to change them;

I would venture to say the hatred is due to our foreign policy, but I wouldn’t want to be labeled “un-American”.

    The real kick in the pants happens when we give aid to 2 different countries that are fighting each other. Essentially, blowing our money to give others the means to beat each other up? Is this sick version of the WWE?

    Do people ever wonder why these poor countries manage to have a well armed insurgency?

    Naw… that is nothing new… I’m sure other nations LOVE our weapons manufacturers selling to both side in warring nations as well!
