Is this a trick question? I thought everybody knew the answer is YES!

Corrupted US politicians, be it a democrat or a republican, all give away our tax money in billions in foreign aides to countries where US is actively scheming for region change. For example, Mike Pompeo announced giving “humanitarian aide” to Juan Guaido, a US trained Venezuelan lackey who is helping US to destabilize Venezuela; US give Israel trillions in free gifts just to strengthen Israel’s dependency on US aide and in exchange Israel would help US destabilize the middle east. Unfortunately, American ppl allow such a horrible wasteful abuse continued everyday.

If only US had stopped ALL region change plots, shut down ALL military bases around the world and dropped its evil ambitions of American hegemony. American ppl would suddenly see how their lives suddenly become more affluent.

Yes they are spending 700 billion on military aid, supports 100 countries around the world and the list goes on. The US government allocated economic and assistance aid to Israel 49 billion, 443 billion on Welfare system and 600 billion on Medicaid. We currently owe China approximately 3 trillion nice work isn't !!?? While most Americans have less than $1,000.00 in their accounts.!!??

Rand Paul: "we give foreign aid to China. So government is so dumb, it is literally borrowing money from China, to give it back to China, while paying interest on it."

The biggest threat to our 'national security' is the US Government. 'National security' doesn't necessarily mean an external threat.

US government IS wasting your money.
There I fixed your headline.
They see how much they can steal from taxpayers like a game. They are all guilty. Can’t tell on each other now can they?
You get what you can get and I will get what I can get. Just mind your own business.
Sickening. It’s all fake money isn’t it. ? Just print more.
That’s the way it works. Or doesn’t eventually.

Western Democracy is about lying to people that they have the freedom of speech,human rights and freedom of vote .. However many people do not understand they have nothing of this rights..1 freedom of speech will not make a government change their policy against them so what the use of talking without action and one very good example of this , India been talking about solving their railway system problem for decades and yet people are still sitting on the roof top of the train today …2 Human rights is about respecting everyone right and what is the fundamental rules… Read more »

Yes stop giving money to Israel that's a perfect start they only use it to make war with the Palestinians

How about billions ($10 million per day) to Israel. To put this in perspective, Israel has a population of 9 million. Why are tax payers being charged interest by borrowing money from the Federal Reserve (Rothschilds), and then Israel putting it back into the Federal Reserve?????….. One BIG SCAM.
