Why is America so busy dealing with everyone else’s problems?
I mean seriously. Why is America so focused on helping these poor Haitians when we have so many problems here? First we have this significant downturn in our economy, followed by massive layoffs, increased crime rates, H1N1, and multiple wars, and now this big Earthquake in Haiti. How much money are the American people expected to fork over to a territory that has little to no significance on the world. Iraq, Afghanistan, and all of our past wars are putting this country into a financial hole that the American people are only digging deeper. Perpetuating our financial crisis by handing out monopoly money to other weaker countries is equally as terrible as handing it out to companies like AIG and other big banks.
Here is a solution, Japan was able to advance itself by investing their money into things that work. Their military budget is significantly less than America’s. Stop giving away money to other countries, stop fighting wars that have no ends, and stop fixing the problems with inflation. Believe me, it is more than just Haiti’s little earthquake problem. How many times does the world come together to help America when it is facing a national emergency. Last time I remember anyone giving a care was in 2001. Furthermore, the section 8 list hasn’t been available in Alameda county in California since 2001. Maybe if the government focused more financial efforts on social welfare programs instead of problems abroad, there wouldn’t be as many homeless or jobless in the states. America wasn’t half bad as an isolationist nation… It is a sad thing that happened in Haiti, but America has its own problems and it should really focus on fixing those before they try policing and triaging the people of the world.
