I don't know if this sounds stupid, but I was thinking about this while I was shopping at safeway. I was thinking, "God im kinda broke, I guess everybody is kinda broke, how the hell did it get this way?" Our country is in a recession right now, we are all hurting for cash, so how do we try to mitigate this, and then this idea popped in my head, "but why doesn't America start charging for our services in other countries." It seems that it is ok for every other country to charge us up the ass for the products that we import so why dont we charge for War. Or charge to help set up a democracy in a other country. I can understand how the Red Cross goes to less fortunate countries and helps save people. That is admirable and I can understand why it needs to be done, but havent we been at war long enough to become a hired gun? Go ahead, let the Arabian oil companys have raiders come in and destroy their oil fields, but im shure after it happens enough they will be wanting our help, but it comes with a price. The money earned from this could pay off the debt, and the rest would go into a profit sharing program for every citizen above the age of 21. It would cause an increase in the work force, lowering of taxes (phew), and a general overall stimulus of our country. Other countries may look at us, like were cheapskates, but who the hell cares, were hurting man, at least we would be resourceful.
