And, again, international affairs isn't foreign aid. That's international relations. Like diplomats and embassies and whatnot.
And, again, 45 minutes ago you were thinking we spent an astounding 18% of our GDP on foreign aid. Now you know it is 0.13%. That is a radical difference. If your views are in any way based on facts, that would most definitely completely change your whole outlook, right? So why doesn't that seem to have happened? Are your views just driven by pure mindless partisanship? Or what? If we really were giving 18% of our GDP in foreign aid, I would oppose that too, but 0.13%, that's a whole different deal and not nearly enough, so I support it... Does it not work that way for you? Facts don't enter into the equation at all?
i'm figuring you are counting money earned through wages as "valid".. but i'm not sure why you would invalidate money "earned" through less taxation.
it's a viscous circle with supply and demand sometimes... we need demand, but we don't really have the jobs available to put money in peoples pockets in order for them to spend and increase demand with.
money doesn't magically appear in peoples wallets...it's gotta come from somewhere...a job is the best place.
lowing taxes can help create jobs...depending on the details.... and I don't think it's wise for democrats and liberals to completely invalidate that idea.
even Obama and his advisers knows that tax breaks can help spur job creation... that's why they keep attempting them.
,but,they are under the idea that people who make over 250k aren't job creators though... and I haven't the foggiest idea where they get that from... they aren't teh only job creators, but they do create jobs nonetheless.
