There are two perspectives here and I believe both are valid points but ultimately it's time to change how we do things at home before we have the capacity to continue to grow our outreach programs overseas. 1. I do believe it is our duty to aid and support those in need in other countries, especially those in severe crisis. We have made it clear throughout our history that the U.S. stands up for those being unlawfully prosecuted and time and time again we continue to show our support and generosity in these matters. Even privately the U.S. citizens are the first people to lend financial, spiritual and physical help to those in need without the governments assistance. And for this reason is why I love my country and its citizens. 2. The U.S. Is going through a time of great difficulty especially with our citizens at home. To many people on welfare, unemployment, no education, and forgive me - some have become entitled by the government to be responsible for their wellbeing. I don't blame them for thinking this way as I believe the tools to be self-sufficient are not readily available for everyone. I would much rather expand our capacity at home with education, jobs, and programs that pick people up off their knees and gives them the tools to live the American Dream.
