HANDING OUR MONEY TO DICTATORS AND TYRANTS
US politician Otto Passman, US politician once stated, "Foreign aid involves taking money from poor people in rich countries and giving it to rich people in poor countries." No truer words were ever spoken. First-world nations hand out billions of dollars each year to nations ruled by dictators and their cronies, who misappropriate the money and live like kings while the general populations of those nations remain poor and hungry.
Australia is one of those nations that grabs the hard-earned money that citizens pay in taxes and other imposts and then hands it out to nations that should never receive a cent for any reason. At the same time that Australia hands out those billions of dollars annually, it pays a fortune in interest on its massive debt. In 2014, Australia was paying a whopping $1 BILLION per month - $12 BILLION per year just in servicing the interest on its debt, while at the same time, it was handing out all that money to other nations. This is not only an utter disgrace, but it is stupid beyond belief.
WHERE OUR MONEY IS SQUANDERED
In 2013-2014, Australia has provided direct cash aid to the following nations.
- CONGO - $359 million - This corrupt nation has been wracked by wars and tribal conflicts throughout history. There's an old saying - "You can take the monkey out of the jungle, but you can't take the jungle out of the monkey" - and this is the case with Congo and other African nations. Foreign aid handed to the Congolese generally winds up in the hands of its rulers, who live very handsomely on it while the average Congolese eats dirt. That is why no foreign aid should ever be given to this nation.
- EGYPT - $397 million - This military dictatorship imprisoned a number of reporters, including Australian journalist Peter Greste, who received a 7 year jail sentence despite the fact that the Egyptian prosecution did not present one shred of evidence whatsoever at his trial. Why the hell are we giving these dysfunctional Islamic arseholes any of our hard-earned money?
- ETHIOPIA - $981 million - This nation now has the largest economy by GDP in East Africa and Central Africa. It does not need Australian foreign aid.
- HAITI - $1.4 billion - This is the poorest nation in the Caribbean, but it is right on the doorstep of the USA, the richest nation in the world. Let the Americans give Haiti foreign aid.
- HAMAS (Palestinian Territory) - $351 million - Hamas is a prescribed Islamic terrorist organisation and money given to these murderous bastards goes to buy more armaments that they can use against innocent civilians, as they have done for years. Why the hell is Australia giving money to terrorists? These arseholes should never get one single cent from any civilised nation, let alone Australia.
- INDONESIA - $650 million - We are absolutely insane for giving these bastards any money and other goods, such as aircraft and boats. The Indonesians have deliberately violated Australian border laws on a daily basis by operating their lucrative people-smuggling racket. They have never been a friend to Australia and they have punished Australian citizens with very harsh jail sentences for fairly minor offences, while giving token jail sentences to Islamic terrorists who were responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of people, including many Australians. In 2013, the Indonesians spent $8 BILLION on their military, while Australia handed them $650 million. Even with all the help Australia gives them, the Indonesians still hate us. Australia should have cut off that money and told those bastards to spend less on their military and spend more on their people. We should chop them off at the knees and never give Indonesia another cent or any equipment.
- IRAQ - $1.08 billion - Are we crazy? Not only did Australia so stupidly get sucked into a highly illegal war by the Americans and lost valuable lives in the process, but Australian taxpayers are squandering their money by handing it out to the Iraqi government, which is comprised of a pack of corrupt despots. Not one cent should ever be given to these Islamic bastards.
- JORDAN - $463 million - Why on earth does Australia send our hard-earned money to Jordan? It's not a poor country by any means. It has oil and a very wealthy monarch and does not need Australian foreign aid.
- KAZAKHSTAN - $304 million - This is not a nation desperately in need. It is home to the massive Baikonur Cosmodrome, where until 2016, Russia launched most of its space missions. it received massive payments for this and its gas that it supplies to other nations. Australia should not give a cent to this nation.
- KENYA - $816 million - This is an ex-British colony. Let the British give it foreign aid, not Australia
- LIBYA - $1.45 billion - This nation is now run by Islamists who are part of what will eventually become the Greater Middle Eastern Caliphate. Who could forget those Libyan Muslims desecrating the Australian war cemetery in Benghazi. We fought for those bastards in World War Two and were repaid by Libyan Islamic militants vandalising our war dead. Not one cent of Australian money should go to Libya.
- MEXICO - $622 million - It is insanity to give foreign aid to Mexico. It is not a poor nation by any means and the world's richest man, Carlos Slim, lives there. Mexico does not need Australian foreign aid and we should not give it a cent.
- MOZAMBIQUE - $404 million - There is no reason for Australia to give Mozambique any money. This nation is not ravaged by problems of utter poverty.
- NIGERIA - $456 million - This nation has massive oil reserves and the Internet scam industry is the third-largest business operating there. The Nigerian authorities and politicians turn a blind eye to this criminal enterprise, mainly because of the massive bribes paid to them by criminals operating the 419 oil scam and other swindles, preying on many Australians in the process. Nigeria should not get one red cent of Australian money.
- PAKISTAN - $2 billion - Now this is a real travesty. Australians are paying billions of dollars to this Islamic nation that is a hotbed of so-called "honour" killings, terrorism and other crimes against humanity. Australia should chop off every cent to these bastards.
- RUSSIA - $380 million - This is utterly ridiculous. Russia is not a third-world country, but a nuclear-armed superpower with the world's biggest gas reserves. Why the hell are we giving the Russians one cent? There is no reason whatsoever for it.
- SENEGAL - $698 million - This is an ex-French colony. If it needs foreign aid, let the French support it.
- SOUTH AFRICA - $566 million - This is not a poor nation. It is home to the world's biggest diamond mines, huge oil reserves and there is no reason why it should receive one cent of Australian foreign aid.
- SUDAN - $870 million - This Islamic nation is ruled by a Omar al-Bashir, a despot who has been indicted by the International Criminal Court for genocide. Foreign aid money given to this nation is literally guaranteed to go into the pockets of Al-Bashir and his cronies. Australia should cut off all foreign aid to this nation.
- TANZANIA - $554 million - This nation has vast amounts of minerals including gold, diamonds, coal, iron, uranium, nickel, chromium, tin, platinum, coltan, niobium, natural gas and others. It does not need Australian foreign aid.
- UGANDA - $451 million - This nation is a repressive and corrupt dictatorship pretending to be a democracy. It imposed the death penalty for homosexuality in some instances. Uganda has substantial mineral wealth and should not get a cent of Australian money.
- ZAMBIA - $331 million - In 2010, the World Bank named Zambia one of the world's fastest economically reformed countries. It does not need Australian foreign aid money.
CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME
In 2013, statistics showed that there were over 105,000 homeless people in Australia. According to the Smith Family, 13% of Australians - 2.86 million people - live in poverty. That is one in eight people. Yet this nation allows Aussies to live like this while it sends billions of dollars to shit-hole dictatorships in Africa and other places and belligerent militaristic Islamic nations like Indonesia that has been scamming Australia for many years with its people-smuggling racket and punishing Australians with completely disproportionate jail terms while letting Islamic terrorists like Abu Bakar Bashir off with token punishment for his role in the mass murder of Australians.
The truth is that charity begins at home. Until there is no person living in poverty here and no homeless person living on the streets, not one single cent should be sent to another foreign nation in aid. The really stupid part about Australian foreign aid is that we actually borrow money and pay massive interest on it so that we can send foreign aid to nations that either do not need it or to nations ruled by tyrants who grab the money for themselves.
As Otto Passman said, foreign aid involves taking money from poor people in rich countries and giving it to rich people in poor countries and this is exactly what Australia has so foolishly been doing, merely to make this nation look good in the eyes of other nations. Well to hell with looking good. We should look good in the eyes of our own people by getting them out of poverty and not worrying about other nations. Let them get themselves out of poverty. It's not our fault that they are poor because of their corrupt politics, wars and tribal conflicts.
On top of that, not one cent in foreign aid should be spent until the Australian economy is completely in surplus and Australia's foreign debt is completely paid off. Right now this nation is forking out 1 billion just in interest every month and it is insane to be handing money to other nations when Australia is borrowing that money and paying interest on it. This has to stop.
