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”.
