Why is it the USA is always willing to send money and aid to foreign countries in need but yet we

don't have the funds to straighten out our own problems. Like medical care, hunger,homeless, overcrowding in the schools! Why is this or am I missing something? I really don't understand!
Aditya:

Because no matter how bad off you think we are, MANY others are worse off, and it's the right thing to do to help others.

I am ashamed of most of the above answers, and especially the so-called Christians; you out to re-think your positions.

America is the richest nation in the world, and just as people give at their churches to help others, so do we also help the needy in this world. And why not? We get so much in terms of resources and goods for mere pennies.

The reason we struggle at home is because we have needs beyond our means. We are materialistic beyond control. We want it all, and still aren't satisfied. And we have government leaders who can't stay within a budget. Could you run a family spending like our government does? You'd be bankrupt in no time.

Bottom line: Or priorities are wrong. We spend on the wrong things, but as the mot affluent nation in the world, we can certainly help feed the starving and sick. We could do more, of course, but then, you may have to give something up, and it doesn't really sound like most of you want to. So be it.

Asher:

Thanks you for your answer Michael!

Sivashanmugam:

wondered that myself, I say we should clean up our own backyard before we go into someone else's...

Aditya:

I agree. We should leave Iraq.

Sivashanmugam:

I wasn't even talking about Iraq, I was talking about making sure all American children don't go to bed hungry and all homeless have a nice bed to sleep in before we make sure another country does....

Aditya:

I know you weren't, but when you wrote that we should clean up our own back yard before someone else's, that's what I thought. Makes sense, right? Trillions of dollars spent in a war in the wrong country? Just think how many house that would buy, or meals it could make.

Priorities. They're either there or they're not.

Man cannot live on rhetoric alone.

Asher:

Thanks sonnamae.I agree.

Chris:

because the U.S government is too gullible and politicians have their hands in anything given due to their own greed. most incumbants are re elected. time to change that and get new blood in offices

Asher:

Thank you for your answer..But do you really think things will be any different this is the way this country has always been! Or am I wrong?

Chris:

even with change, there exist the possibility of more of the same due to the human nature of greed

Asher:

Thanks Xtremely!!

ElegantSwan:

We have always bought our friends.

Asher:

You must be reading my mind:) Thanks for you answer..

Montanatwig:

because it's about showing off! this country can't really afford to help itself, the national deficit is tremendous!

Asher:

I agree with you we want to look good in others eyes. But why???Hi Badgirl long time:):)

Montanatwig:

just getting settled again! new job, new home ect! good to be back! i think it's a pride thing!

Skullz5:

very true schools are closing like made fire yet they are trying to claim no child left behind acts so i wonder what they will call that now.

Asher:

The future scares me for the younger generation. If we will even have a future!
