At a time when the United State’s economy is sputtering from over spending and mounting deficits, Democratic candidate Barack Obama wants U.S. taxpayers to help build up Mexico’s economy!

Link to rest.

Yes because if we tax our businesses and rich folks we will have money to burn on Mexico. Its a n easier option to penalize american citizens than to hold illegals accountable for their trespasses. Clinton gave mexico a huge gift by forgiving their debt. As we can all see it has sure paid off.

Well let's see-$$ being sent from illegal aliens and legal Mexicans from the US to Mexico is already the number 2 industry in Mexico-behind only tourism. We already support millions of illegal aliens and their anchors here through welfare, medicaid, etc. Should we Americans just have our paychecks direct deposited to a government bank in Mexico?

This is such b.s.-we need to give them more American $$ to curb illegal aliens from coming here? I don't think so. Here is an idea for both Obama an McCain. Secure the borders, cut off all freebies and jobs, end the disgusting hijacking of the 14th amedment. That right there-not more $$ to a corrupt government who dumps it's citizens on us-will end this illegal invasion.

All this $$ to not only illegals and their anchors here plus all the $$ to Mexico and our president and most others sit idly by while Luis Aguilar's killer roams free. Not one word out of Bush and company. Who have we heard from? Poe, Bilbray and the usual guys who actually care about our border patrol. Disgusting.

Just look at the over all success of our political thinkers...
First they allow a few hundred thousand illegals to sneak over
instead of nipping it in the butt before it gets out of hand...
Then, after that got way out of control.. they thought it would
be easier just to give them all amnesty.. that should fix it, Right!!! !!
Then they give mexico a free-ride on millions in loans, that in turn should
help mexico help thier own, Right!!! !!
Now, if they had thier way, they ONCE AGAIN find it easier just to give
another 20/30 million illegals amnesty instead of closing up our borders!! !!
it's like a stray cat, once you feed'em.. they never leave!! !!
Or just like a ****-roach, once you get just one and don't get rid of it,,,
you'll have thousands in no time!! !!
I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't like ****-roaches!! !!

Actions speak louder than words. In regards to the border, the current occupant of the White House has been quite clear with his position.

If elected, Obama would also push for reducing the cost and time it takes for an immigrant to become a U.S. citizen, including speeding up — or doing away with — FBI background checks.
Has Obama seen this video

It never ends. All politians are only concern in other countries, and not giving a damm about our needs here. We are falling behind everyday with our daily household bills. Higher rents, higher utilities, higher taxes. Mothers becoming everyday the only head of household, for irresponsable fathers. The education is a C- and more expensive everyday, and people are so involve with what these so call celebreties are doing.
We are also always believing in these politians. Get it straight, no matter Democrats or Repubicans, we are still falling behind everyday while they promising so many things that they have no intention on making they stick. It's time for americans to hold these politians accountable for this big mess in the country.
Starting with the community, with the senators, governors of your states and stop been manipulated by these puppets.Think of what our chilldren and grandchildren will have to endure, because of us been fools for so long.

obama's own website shows that he wants to double foreign aid. additional quote follows:
We are going to double foreign aid. We are going to make the Millenium Development Goals America’s goals. And those priorities are going to be ones that we care deeply about. We won’t be able to ramp up the twenty five billion all in the first year. We’re looking at six billion dollar increments, additional increments each year until we get to the fifty billion mark. And here would be the priorities. Number one, HIV AIDS. We have made progress with the PETFAR program… It needs to be significantly increased. I want us to pay our fair share to the Global Fund, and I want to make sure that we are doubling the amount of people who are getting treated. No two is… a global education fund. Two billion dollars a year that is devoted to building schools that are teaching math and science and agriculture… agricultural sciences instead of hatred of America, and that is good for our national security, it’s good for development around the world. In countries like Indonesia or Kenya, setting up a school just doesn’t cost that much money, but it can have huge ramifications… so that would a second thing. Third thing is debt forgiveness. This has to be a priority. You’ve got countries… sub-saharan Africa, forty four percent of its GDP is taken up in debt servicing. It is a crushing blow, so I will work both with other countries in the developed world, as well as multi-national organizations to make sure that we are moving rapidly towards loan forgiveness.”
no wonder the rest of the world wants us to vote for obama!
