We the people would like to know just when our government and president is going to start looking out and doing for us and stop worrying so much of what has been going on in other countries.

Obama has send aid to half these countries since becoming president. Our country could be doing a lot better than what it is. We have lost our men and women over people who have fought their wars for thousands of years. And for what? So we can send them aid and govern their country.

Why can't we just leave the Middle East alone, Syria and Russia as well, and start thinking about our homeland? Someone needs to start thinking and doing what is going to help us all, rather than doing the things that are going to start our next war.
