For decades, we have given borrowed money and materials to other countries. Today, we have our brave soldiers stationed in more than 100 countries.
Think how much greater our country would be if that money spent on spreading democracy (usually unsuccessfully) were spent instead on improving our highways, building more and better hospitals, improving schools from kindergarten through college and securing our borders.
Less than half of our citizens pay taxes to make our government function. Many of the other half have been trained to rely upon government handouts. For fear of losing the handouts they re-elect the incumbents, and we go further in debt.
Most in Washington and in the rest of the country think debt is unimportant. The longer we go without decreasing the federal government and its handouts, the sooner the day comes when our USA ceases to exist.
Pray to God for public wisdom to vote for leaders who can save our wonderful country.
