By now people should know who is who by simply observing their fruits.


Good point. Is that so hard?

I think not.

With observation we can have a chance to decide if their values are our values. With MSM lies and shills on every comment board in the western world pushing hate America, I think it is easy to see if you actually try.

ETA

The reason individuals hate differs from bigotry to brainwashing but the PTB hate us for being free and helping the helpless.

I live in a country that receives aid from the US, and I am by all means up for cutting it and giving it to your own countrymen that need the relief efforts more.

To be a US citizen and support the dirty congress that stopped this bill borders with treason and just being a crappy person in general, imo.

No. Not treason.

Perhaps you should look up what that means.

What do you think people playing politics with a disaster means?

Perhaps you should look up what 'borders' and 'imo' mean. Just a suggestion.

So, you don't know what treason means.

Treason - ...the crime of betraying one's country...
To insist on not cutting on foreign aid in order to help your own countrymen after a natural disaster, to me, is treason. Nice try though.

Not being from the United States, I would not expect you to know our laws.


Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

Seeing as how I said 'borders' with treason clearly, I'm fine with it being under the definition of the word itself rather than what 'Treason' means under US law.
Nice try nitpicking as I said.

There is a legal definition for treason.

In the United States we are free to express our opinions but opinions carry no weight in law.

I would rather live in a country where this is the case. Being convicted for an opinion would suck.

Funny how you insist.
"To be a US citizen and support the dirty congress that stopped this bill borders with treason and just being a crappy person in general, imo."

Even if I myself was solely responsible for, and had my finger on the "charge for treason" button, your argument had no place here since I said it borders with treason, and not treason itself.

I can be as persistent in wording as you are apparently.

...Is it possible that you're simply trying to spam the thread from it's subject? Gut feeling and I hope I'm wrong. It's hard reading people online.

You are welcome to your opinion about being a crappy person. It doesn't get even close to treason. Treason is a very, very serious criminal offense.

In my opinion, it very much does :] I have no problem receiving your aid money though I wish it would've gone to Texas/Florida tbh.

You're welcome. How very gracious of you.

You have no say in how we spend our funds. Good night.

No say at all in how you spend your funds. Yet I still think it borders with treason. Nighty night!

I am confused. Did the bill for relief not get passed? So what is his point? Cut foreign aid because he doesnt understand diplomacy?

No.
His point was to make sure his base knows that he's all "America first." Even though he knew full well that his amendment would not go anywhere.

Tilting at windmills.

Wondering what do our liberal friends think about the US being able to aid Florida/Texas instead of the Israeli army, yet choosing not to.

Not sure what your point is.
We are aiding Texas and Israel.
