Let the world balance without the help of the US. The US is the world biggest donor in foreign aid (more than twice as much as the 2nd  biggest donor). Let that aid start at home. Time for the US to dig in and rebuild.

The US has been demonized long enough. Spent billions and has nothing to show for it. In the meantime, there are millions at home starving. In the end charity begins at home.
