    Awesome, now if we can just cut the rest of the world off too.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    While I agree that the US should be in the process of ceasing the handouts to the world due to our own debt, I do believe that there are deeper and more evil pockets to deal with first than Honduras. Honduras has generally been a friend to the US and is more deserving than the many countries who take our money and stab us in the back.

    This is merely political posturing by the leftist US administration in order to show their solidarity with the dictators of the world. Obama must be anxious that he has not obtained dictator status yet, but he's working on it!

    You mean the joke called the United Nations and every "tin pot dictator" condemned the so-called coup! Calling this action a coup is a great example of the Orwellian term "newspeak"! Chavez, Ortega, and Castro all opposed the action by Honduran military and politicians who actually support the constitution that they took an oath to uphold. Let's face it, Chavez, Castro and Ortega never met a real coup that they didn't like! The conclusion: this was not a coup or they would have loved it! Coincidentally, budding dictator Obama was on the same page as his more experienced dictator brethren!

    See my paragraph above for any readers who require a definition of "tin pot dictator"!

    By rule of law, you cannot be referring to the US constitution. You know not of what you write! Keep writing - you're making a great argument for us freedom-loving supporters of continued democratic-republic status for Honduras. I suspect that your definition of "right wing" probably includes the most freedom-loving, constitution (i.e. ultimate rule of law) supporting, most decent people in the US, therefore, I call BS on your assertions!

    Since I want all foreign aid to be cut off, why does it matter where we start?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Why do you want to do that? Since when is bribing a bad strategy?

    Okay, the US spends about 24 billion a year.. a third of that goes too 2 countries.. Israel and Egypt. If you add Colombia and Pakistan then those 4 countries make up about half the spending.

    So are you sure you want to get rid of the aid.. I mean it is only 24 billion.. In the whole cutting spending wheel.. where do you think you can get more money.. cutting aid, or cutting earmarks and other pork?
