    WASHINGTON - Libertarian Party Chairman Mark Hinkle issued this statement today:
    "I am glad to hear of the death of Osama bin Laden, who had no qualms about slaughtering American civilians.
    "Unfortunately, bin Laden leaves behind an evil legacy in the United States: the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, the PATRIOT Act, warrantless wiretaps, the 'state secrets' doctrine, and other violations of Americans' civil and economic rights.
    "Just like Osama bin Laden, these programs must be terminated.
    "President Obama must also end the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya. It's time to stop being the world's policeman. It's time to bring all those troops home.
    "Our government should also end its foreign aid programs, which create future terrorists by funding many dictators around the world."

    Agree, but not strongly at this point.



    Agree, still not very strongly.

    Very, very strongly agree, agree, agree.
    Cut off those aids if not terminate them totally.
    Let them learn to feed their own people now.
    Let them learn to stand up on their own.
    We have a staggering internal debt of our own to take care of.
    We have white, black, brown, children of our own here to educate and feed.
    If they want to lord it over their own people, then it's not a problem of these United States.
    If they want to massacre their own people, it's their decision and theirs alone.
    If their people want to topple them, let them do it alone, it's their problem, not ours, not our troops'.
    If we will aid one, then let's aid all.
    Syrian civilians are no different than Libyan civilians, why aren't we bombing Syria thru those legal fronts we have, like NATO ?

    AGREE!

    Anyway, the most efficient way to deliver foreign aid is to hire an illegal alien. Most send money home to their families. <G>

    Can't understand why y'all waited so long to celebrate his death. I mean it's been ten years now since he ceased to exist.

    Why not just declare foreign aid unconstitutional? It is unless it meets a very narrow set of circumstances and most of it doesn't.
