the amount of needy people in other countries is far, far greater than those in America, and being one of the wealthiest country on earth they should help other countries, as well as their own people. Btw im not american im canadian :D

niggle: we have trillions of dollars in debt. yet, by far, we are the richest country in the world. that shows how much other countries need help, and as we have the most power, its good and its our responsibility to take care of others.

We are nowhere near the richest country in the world. That would be like me building a 100 million dollar home and having no way to pay for it but still saying I have one of the most expensive homes in the world. Owing money and actually having money are two very different things, anybody can borrow money, wealthy people don't have to. That's what makes them wealthy, not the ability to borrow a lot of money.

alright but who has helped us? i see why that would make sense but since no one even thinks to help us, then we need to stop helping others and start helping our own country and getting our economy back on track

Because it's the right thing to do, and America tries to do that.

Some countries might need it and some don't anymore like pakistan. I agree this country needs to take a serious look at that. Because right now I think that money would be better spent right here helping all the hard working Americans struggling just to make ends meet.

As you can see by what's been going on with the economy the past few years, and going into unwarranted wars. The elected officials in this country aren't very bright and continue to make one horrible decision after another so giving away money that we don't actually have is just another one of those decisions.

That's what happens when u let professional politicians control out money instead of hiring professional businessmen to be politicians.

Charity starts at home !!!!!!!
WE have starving children !!!!!
WE have homeless people !!!
WE have unemployment !!!

It's simple to me. Worry about solving the worlds problems AFTER you've solved your own.

I don't cut my neighbors grass when my lawn is 6 inches high.
I don't feed my neighbors kids while mine go hungry.
I don't fix my neighbors car when mine is broke down.

I do understand that the USA must help others in order to help ourselves in the long run but come on!!!!!!!!

I don't mind helping people for a limited period of time for humanitarian reasons
But I do resent sending money to people who do not even like us
We should not help countries that have not stood with us in the past

I don't know why we do that. Especially considering that when we do, other countries hate us even more saying America is too interfering in their internal affairs. Maybe we should stop. But then again, then they would hate us for NOT interfering.
