You people should be honest enough to quit calling yourselves Republicans. You people should quit calling yourselves Christians. There isn't a true Republican around, there isn't a true conservative around, and definitely there isn't a true Christian around, who who advocates eliminating foreign aid, who advocates eliminating Christian values, who advocates eliminating helping the poor, who agrees with your selfish, grossly unChristian position. Some of you criticize atheists. I think you make atheists look like saints. You practice extremism carried to the extreme.
Thank God you people are huddled there in your own little pathetic corner acting like someone is listening to you.

There are some people who want to reduce our foreign aid. They are opposed by the great, great majority of Republicans, Democrats, liberals, conservatives. But quit it already? Make the U.S. the pariah of the world? The rest of the civilized would vomit on us if your corrupt ideas were in play. Throw Christianity out the window? You've got to be kidding.
U.S. foreign aid is approximately 0.18 percent of gross national product, the lowest of any G-7 nation and far below a 0.7 percent United Nations target that 22 of the world's developed nations have agreed to meet by 2015.
Does the U.S. need any support from any other nations? Apparently, you don't think so. You people are so unrealisic, so far removed from what the civilized world accepts as fundamental, that it's hard to imagine how you got involved with the twenty-first century.
