These days, the subject one is most likely to hear on the evening news is the state of the economy.
The U.S.A. is a young country compared to England, France, Germany, Africa and several other countries. Why must we help all of these foreign countries that are much older than ours?
Also, given the economic problems that we are experiencing today, wouldn’t this be an excellent time to collect debts incurred during World Wars I and II? The only country that has paid its debt to America is Finland. England and France have never repaid their war debts and we are still paying France for the upkeep of our military cemeteries.
Russia obtained ships from our country on lend lease during World War II and then used these ships to transport war material to North Vietnam during the North Vietnam Conflict. Russia has never paid for these ships.
Why must the American taxpayer bailout not only the banks in our own country, but subsidize the rest of the world as well? Worse still, it just keeps going on. Where is the change?
