I'd like to know how many LEOs out there would like to see the USA stop giving billions to other countries while our own is falling apart.  Think about the damage from natural disasters, border disputes and "sanctuary cities".  We need to take care of our own first, or we'll be a third rate country in no time.

We need to wall off mexico while we are at, just one big 100' tall wall, I was reading somewhere that we give them billions a year. For what, travel money to the US.

We need to pull back inside our own country and let the other NATO nations take a bigger bite of the sh*t sandwich. I can think of alot of things our nation could do to get out of debt.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate all of the great comments and approval of this idea.  I know its not anything new, but at least my LEO brothers and sisters feel the same way, and that makes my day.

Funding Projects in America First, what a novel idea, might just be too radical for the Washington DC crowd, but I support it 100%.

I wish we could but that will never happen completely. I just wish that the help we provide was appreciated by the ones we do help instead of being used against us in so many ways. However we do need to cut back we have our own problems to deal with right now.

Thats very true, America has it's hand in everything.. We spend so much money on other things, sending aid here, sending aid there, who sent aid to us When IKE hit? When KAtrina hit? Was there Georgian ships bringing us food, and water? We can't even police up our own, but we sure as hell can send aid everyehwere else in a hurry!! Thats whats wrong with our country now, thats why the dollar is so weak, why the gas is so high!!  It is all about politics!!

Worse than just giving our money away to other counries, a good deal of it goes to countires who are unfriendly to the USA. We spend millions on countries who routinely oppose us in the United Nations, and who be more than happy to see us go under.

This is a clear example of why we need more common sense citizens involved in the political process.  The politicians in washington (and in State capitals) are so busy looking at "the big picture" that they can't see simple solutions that exist.

I agree with everyone...we need to take care of our own backyard before we start worrying about everyone elses!

Very true, which is a reason most presidents who were military generals and such were so successful, and ran a great country. They see EVERY part of the picture.

Well, just get used to the idea.   When Obama becomes President-for-life even more money will be going overseas to try and buy peace.

I vote for stopping money from over seas period, I would go even further and say stop the import of product from overseas when we can get it from right here, at least for a year or two.

I think i speak for alot of people when I say that I take care of my family before I take care of others.  I think are government should do the same.  Take care of your family at home FIRST.

Just like our military, we should protect our own borders before we protect others.
