I wish too that we would leave all these countries to fend for themselves as well.
I also wish we could stop sending monetary aid to all these countries.
I also wish we would stop sending humanitarian aid to all these countries.
I also wish we could ignore pleas from these countries when rougue states take them over.
I also wish our economy which makes everyone country is this world a better place could use it's engine to help only our country.
The problem is bboy, we don't live in a vacuum. We help those who need helping. We are a generous country. We ignore those who criticize us and still try to help because our country values freedom and wants everyone to be free.
We will not collapse. The Soviet Union was held in place through tyranny, slavery, communism all failed institutions. We are a free people and because we are free we have the greatest economy in the world. Anyone can immigrate to this country and with no money and a dream can become fabulously wealthy, and in turn can help others through philanthropy.
America may currently be gravitationally challenged but we are a great people and will be around long after our grandkids are posting in here
