Can Foreign Aid Save Africa?

I agree with Ron Paul.

Why are politicians in the United States deciding what is best for people in Africa? And why are taxpayers in the United States being forced to fund –- for example -- family planning facilities that perform abortions?

Africans should decide what is best for Africa. American taxpayers should decide what charities deserve their money. Forcibly taking money from the United States and sending it overseas is unconstitutional and immoral.

It is sadly symptomatic of the trend toward bigger government that instead of private fundraising efforts, people put their hand out to Congress. It is unfortunate that some activists prefer funding taken by force, to donations freely given.
