End Aid to Dependent Dictators
By James Wilson

Imagine that China someday becomes the world's only superpower, and that a declining America receives foreign aid and direction from them.

Wouldn't many Americans resent China for its meddling? And wouldn't that feeling turn to hatred if our country was governed by a DICTATOR whom Chinese politicians were supporting?

If you can imagine this then you can also sympathize with how an Egyptian feels toward America. U.S. politicians have given Egypt's Dictator-President, Hosni Mubarak, $60 billion over the past 30 years.

And Mubarak isn't the only one! That's why we're asking you to send a letter telling Congress to end foreign aid to dictators.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

I'm angry that tear gas canisters used against Egyptian protesters said "Made in the USA."

I'm upset that Congress forces me to support dictators like Egypt's Mubarak.

I consider it criminal that Congress has funded Mubarak to the tune of $60 billion.

I reject the claim that foreign aid builds good relations with other countries. Instead, it makes foreigners think that we want to dominate them, and hold them in bondage to their corrupt rulers.

The $15 billion we spend on foreign aid each year buys us hatred and enemies around the world.

The Constitution was designed to protect me from this. It confers no authority on you for my giving tax money to foreign rulers. This means that foreign aid VIOLATES the Ninth and Tenth Amendments. Please honor your oath of office. End all foreign aid, especially to dictators.

I am quite competent to handle my own foreign aid program, thank you very much. I do this through the contributions I make to voluntary groups with an international reach. I neither need nor want you to coerce me to fund your aid preferences. Aid is a job for civil society, NOT politicians.
