why should we send anything to any other country, their not sending us anything but more people to care for. Boy the U.S.A. has a serious learning problem send us your poor your tired your hungry, ignorant bunch. How ignorant to put a big stone woman in the middle of a harbor. I guess they were going to do it anyway. Ignorance is bliss boy are we blessed. Give it to our own. That's jails and prisons are full. Somebodies got to feed those hungry babies and children. Just let the government keep taking away food stamps and other programs and keep building jails that's what you want any way you sorry bunch of people that discourage children from getting up to go to school and break these little children 's heart. Step up to the plate and swallow this. They can't speak for themselves but I sure the hell can. Stop giving away America Jack and let the people we have here enjoy it.............

That stone Lady is made of Copper, and was gifted to the US from France.

Most of the Subsidies we give to other countries, allows us to stay competitive in industry, by stabalizing the prices of the goods we import versus what is made here. With such subsidies, things such as Cotton, would be priced so low on the import market, we couldn't afford to farm it here, and thus we lose any hint of self sustainability which is our second largest argument for world trade.

Another large chunk of international subsidies is to provide humanitarian aide to lesser countries. This allows the brightest minds to have an incentive to come to the US to further progress studies in innovative science here.

The last and largest portion of international subsidies, is to fund arms to rebel forces. This keeps war off of American soil, and allows us to sleep more safely than any other country on this planet.

While I agree we need to lessen the subsidies elsewhere and improve ourselves from within, we need to do this by limiting the interest of big business in our endeavors, and focus more on the good of the entire populace.
