I do feel that most foreign "aid" should be ended, but there are situations (like, say, the Haitian quake) where we need to step up and help out.

The United States government sent $41 million to Haiti while the people of the United States sent 1.1 billion.

So if you zero out that $41 million, would it make much of a difference when the people are already so generous?

Good point. Foreign aid is basically - bribery money with conditions. It's not much to do with aid and more with foreign relations.

The military can do martial law if they want to. The government bought 25,000 transport vehicles and around 2 billion bullets .223 and 9MM I think.

Yeah, but they'll side with the citizenry when shit goes down, right?:rofl:

Btw, you know those 2,000,000,000 bullets you're going full nutjob on? They're meant for practice and qualifying as well as on-duty carrying. If you do the math, you'll find that it isn't that many per person that needs to carry on the job. I'm surprised that you didn't get specific and mention the number that the IRS or some other innocuous agency is getting bullets like other fringe right-wing sites.

edit: LOLZ@Commie-Mart instead of Walmart.
