We are not Israel. I don’t believe in free stuff. Pay your own way.

No one ever asks that question when it comes to $150 million dollar drones, $600 million dollar embassies (Baghdad), billions to defend Europe, Korea and Japan, or the $6 trillion already blown in Iraq and Afghanistan. Never heard a single right winger ask “how do you plan to pay for it?” The money is ALWAYS found. Not to mention the cost of tax cuts.

But mention something that actually helps real American people unlike dumbass Middle Eastern wars and tax cuts for corporations, the right wing refrain is always concerning the cost.

I know how we’ll pay for it though. Get the money from the same source you found that drone money.

Religious Republicans are OK spending money on defense for Israeli.

They want to make sure there are enough Jews there to start the rapture.



Lunatics!

I think the conservative position should come into play regarding Israel.
There is a difference between a handup and a hand out.
Israel has a permanent hand out from US tax payers and we should cut them off the teat.
Let them make it on their own and fight their own wars.

All the wars in the middle east we have been involved our Israels enemies.
The hand outs climb into the trillions of dollars for Israel.

Whenever it comes to European Countries, the conservatives say we are subsidizing their socialist policies when we provide them defense with our military presence.

We are doing the same for Israel and more.

Yep
When it comes to wars, a blank check is handed out and costs are never discussed.
When it comes to taking care of the crippled and maimed after the wars, we are told, sorry, we just do not have the money.

" Why can't the USA be more like Israel? Universal healthcare, free abortion, subsidized college tuition!"

You are greatly confused. NONE of those things are "FREE". Taxes collected from the people who get these services PAY for them.
Why can't Israel be MORE like the United States? A 2nd amendment, warrants required to enter ones property, innocent until proven guilty, etc., etc., etc.?

We shouldn't be sending a dime overseas.

Feel free to move there. Just cross over their border and see how many freebies you get.
