Rep. Paul Gosar, the popular Republican from Arizona, has called for a 10 year moratorium on foreign aid even as billions are to Ukraine.

On Monday, the Biden administration announced that another $4.5 billion of taxpayer’s money has been earmarked for foreign aid sent to Ukraine, in order to help the government maintain “essential functions” during the Russian invasion.

When including the amount spent on arms and other tangible resources, Ukraine will have received over $18 billion from the US this year alone.

Following the news, Gosar, one of the most America First members of Congress, tweeted that America needs a “Total Foreign Aid Moratorium,” with the policy going into place for at least 10 years.

“The solutions to many of our problems are actually quite simple,” Gosar said. “Historic flood of immigration? Close the border. Other countries are shamelessly looting our own? Turn off the money spigot.”

“Millions of illegals are flooding across the border bringing drugs, disease, & crime. Inflation, food costs, & gas prices are record high. Families are hurting,” Gosar tweeted on Wednesday.

“We simply can’t afford to be sending tens of billions of dollars overseas anymore. We need a Foreign Aid Moratorium.”

Foreign aid spending in 2021 was budgeted at $38 billion, with 25% of the budget as of February 2022 reports having gone to just 10 countries, including Ethiopia, Jordan, and Afghanistan.

In contrast, the President’s Fiscal Year Budget Request for the State Department and the US Agency for International Development, is $60.4 billion, including $29.4 billion for USAID accounts, amounting to a 6% increase from 2022.

According to the breakdown provided by the USAID, the State Department wants to use $2.6 billion to engage in “integrating gender equality” through “holistic programming” that seeks to elevate not only women and girls across the world, but also “individuals of other gender identities.”

The breakdown also includes a section that would expand “voluntary family planning and reproductive health planning” across the globe. According to the website of the Department of Health and Human Services, “reproductive health care” as a term specifically includes “access to birth control and safe and legal abortion care.”

    GREETINGS!… AN URGENT MESSAGE FOR VALIANT READERS!…

    Simply, Party politics are destroying us…. and we should be focusing on ISSUES, and on removing “bad apples”… and “branding” everything we touch as left or right, or conservative or liberal, IS CRAZY!
    .
    And a solution for me, would be to instigate an “INDEPENDENTS PARTY OF AMERICA”… a “Party” in name only!… that/ which– afterupon elections– would seek to invite Democrats, Republicans, IPA Members, Independents outside of the IPA (but, etcetera!) to sit in a new White House Cabinet, through a consensus of the Members from the IPA (at least, to start!). But, with the proviso, that the respective INVITED MEMBERS forgo their respective Parties, and Party affiliations…and, must declare– and sign on the dotted line– that these various INVITED MEMBERS will no longer run for a conventional Party seat. And, further, the U.S. President will be elected by way of popular vote cast by all citizens.
    .
    Lastly, once all Parties have been absorbed within the IPA, it is to abandon it’s̲ name altogether, and go completely generic… and thereby, ending “politi̲c̲ branding” in U.S. politics and elections, forever! And translated, all future White House Governances would be selected from a nationwide cadre of chosen electees, and not from factions of elected members… and we’d focus on issues, and removing “bad apples”. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean that citizens could not or would not band together on issues and removing “cratopaths”… but, NOT ALONG BRANDED PARTY LINES! We simply tackle a concern to the ground with the best science, draft laws that reflect the SCIENCE and then rationally and democrati̲c̲l̲y̲ remove cratopaths at the ballot box or through our justice system.
    .
    For me, the best Presidential candidate for an INDEPENDENTS PARTY OF AMERICA is Ralph Nader… and a superb White House Cabinet Executive would be Dr.Shiva Ayyadurai. And YES!… I know!… RN is getting on in years!… nevertheless, he could kickstart the most progressive politi̲c̲ campaign in American politi̲c̲ history– he’s viable!
