My whole life I have witnessed American governments spend taxpayers money like it came from a bottomless pit and one thing always amazes me – why so many Americans seem to accept it?
- I know some are outraged but surely it is “common sense” to stop spending money overseas on social programs with a $17 trillion deficit. After all charity starts at home, right?
- Surely most would agree sending foreign aid to countries who burn the American flag is a bad idea, Right?
- Surely with Egypt in a mess, it would be advisable to wait and see what happens and who wins elections before sending more aid there, right?
Surely these are not issues of left or right and something a vast majority of Americans should agree on. Maybe, however Washington seems to be another matter. However wasteful taxpayer spending also happens on domestic programs.
There are two recent examples:
- Firstly is the story of the Justice Department arresting a man, forgetting about him for 4 days before releasing him. NO food, nothing. He won a settlement for $4.1 million dollars…. (I am not arguing against this man getting compensation, or the amount, purely WHO pays it)
