    The point is, without cuts..the system breaks entirally. End of story.
    The order is actually correct, militarism and aid go first, then after cut social programs.
    Imagine you could even direct some military funds BACK into the social programs.

    America does not need to cut aid it needs to target it better. Over the last decade America has spent more on military development aid than it has on economic aid. America also spends 23 times the amount arming herself than she does on economic aid. One-third of all American aid goes to Israel and Egypt, the majority of which pays for armaments despite neither being a developing country.

    http://146.142.4.24/cgi-bin/cpicalc.pl was playing with this calculator and found that 5 dollers in 1975 would be 20.98 dollers today. as you move along through the years, you see that 5 dollers dropped in value from 1975 to now. maybe the trickle down economics was a horrible idea.

    hmmmm.. when they say everyone should start paying more taxes, EVeryone should have to start paying more, including the beneficiaries of TDE.

    going to have to read more into it.

    think of foreign aid as investment. If/when the receiving country uses it to increase its wealth, more goods and services can potentially be bought from the giving country.
