We shouldn't borrow money just to give it away

Why do we continue to give away billions in foreign aid and weapons, to countries that hate America and Americans, then have our own weapons used against us?

Our foreign relations policies have done nothing but bring terrorism to our shores. What price have we paid for cheap oil?

News flash: We are broke, yet we keep borrowing more money to give it away. And we spend everything in the budget at the end of the fiscal year so it does not get cut. This contributes to enormous waste.

We were promised change. I'm not seeing it.
