    Why don't you inject that extra money (thats all peoples money working people) to homeless, veterans, more infrastructure, public schools, more funds to help to fight the opioid addiction crisis, better pay plans for first responders, etc. Instead of putting more gas to the fire, negotiate be the intermediate between those two so they can stop killing each other

    American political elites overestimated how much America cared about principles and ideals, and America got Trump.
    If America continues with this Ukraine adventure, it will get Trump again.

    You cant ask Zelensky how he's spending the money.. a US nspector must take accountability… there are rumors of Supremacist regimes inside Ukraine, you wont know if the money is getting to these regimes
    An inspector can ake accountability, not just take their word for it…find out if Zelensky plans to stay president indefinitely, as elections in Ukraine have stopped. Show Zelensky the Mexico / US border and its history..Mexico CONceded to give half of its California, all of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, parts of Utah and Colorado in order to save lives.. It wasn't perfect but both sides work together today..Americans deserve to know and have a vote on it, instead of throwing their money into an endless pit. Ukraine pls negotiate your Peace talks and stop putting the world at risk now. We don't want another Vietnam.

    Here's the thing. The Republicans intent is to help Putin rebuild a new Russian Empire with the former territory of the Soviet Union. They have proven this time and time again. Anyone know why Russia is so dug in? Because Republicans delayed the counteroffensive by months by delaying the support, which gave Russia the time it needed to dig in.

    Putin has already issued a Thank You to the GOP Leadership for their help in crippling USA and acting to assist him in Ukraine and Globally.

    The good republican party died with McCain. They've became a sickness in our democracy not an asset to it. MTG, Ted Cruz are just a couple of examples of so called Republicans who are bring our great country to an autocracy. These people need purged from power before our nation falls. After what I've seen from some of those who claim they're Republicans I wouldn't put a past them burning our American flag with a smile on their faces. Trump is the ring leader. The man is a shame and a disgrace to our country. If he should win the presidency again God help us all.

    The Republican congress should audit the American tax payers money and the military weapons sent by Joe to Ukraine. Joe is giving away money to other countries. While many Americans are homeless.The debt of US is $33 Trillions, how much money Joe and the democrats they pocketed? Joe will leave reelected President Donald Trump $33 trillion in debt💵😂😂😂😭

    I'm so sick and tired of this idea that European countries aren't doing their part. Estonia has literally given all their artillery to Ukraine, they don't have a single piece for themselves anymore. The largest donors by GDP to Ukraine are the Baltic countries and Poland, it's not even up for debate. Lithuania literally has state run fundraisers to buy drones for the Ukrainian army. We've spent the most in dollar amount, but it's not even comparable to what many European countries have done.

    Shameful privileged law makers who should be sent to the front lines of democracy to see the sacrifices, suffering and hardships being experienced in Ukraine. Pathetic spoiled children.

    Even though Ukraine's fight for freedom is a dire situation for the entire world, the red half of Congress is refusing a joint session for President Zelinsky. I'm really embarrassed for the United States. He said it best that aid for Ukraine is not charity, but an investment; stop fascism now! Everybody in Congress needs to be voted out. Th-u.

  17. 25

    McCarthy was IN Kiev not that long ago ‘pledging full support’! He is so weak! There’s US reps in Ukraine making sure this stuff goes where it’s supposed to! There’s been no proof from anyone that partner aid is going anywhere but the battlefield-only Russia’s useful idiots like the Chaos Caucus and pro-russian YouTubers but there’s never been anything found only a scandal about overpaying for food. The GOP in this country is the one who authorized $3,000.00 toilet seats 💺 for military planes 20 yrs ago!

    I personally think that Ukraine deserves our support way more than the Afghans got for 20 years.
    Saying that, I also believe that NATO countries, besides the USA, are shirking their duty.Mainly Germany and France.
    They are two or three days from the front lines if they drive fast.
    If you take the GNP of Europe and add them all together they are giving a pittance to Ukraine compared to the USA.If they can`t build weapons themselves they should buy them from other democratic countries that can.
    South Korea, Japan,USA etc…
    Most Republicans feel that Ukraine needs our help but Europe has to have a bigger financial contribution to the effort.They are literally on the front lines and they are taking advantage of the USA, again.
    Politically speaking , if they polled all the European residents, would they be willing to pay more, I wonder what they would tell us?

    President Biden, Please give the 300 billion of frozen Russian assets to Ukraine !!! ( REPO Act ) Then Russia can pay for the war it started, as they should ! Even if that doesn't happen, as a voting American citizen I still support Ukraine ! Slava Ukraini 🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦

    What ever you people do , don’t play in Putin’s hand this is what he wants to you to decline then he will spread the war Putin wants to be leader for all the countries around him then if he would get them then guess we’re he will go ,,USA ..Putin would join with China ,Iran ,North Korea ..what a disaster so watch what your decision will be ….mind would be provide Ukraine with everything he needs and he can get his job done ..or beware who will show up in your your area. I personally don’t trust Putin and that would be Trump either those two play hand in hand . Trump doesn’t care for his people he cares more for the G7 countries BEWARE

  23. 34

    Nit picky stuff ,talk talk talk ….vying for more voice than the majority with smart loud scare tactic talk….be warned .. these are the weak parts of democracy….and not everything fits into two opposed baskets ..80 % of Americans support money to Ukraine….you represent the people ,the majority so what are you talking about !

    When there is a full war in Ukraine and the US ends up sending our troops, republicans will deny them healthcare when they come home broken too. Bet they’ll give some more tax cuts to the rich soon. Our military’s readiness is compromised. We are less safe because of republicans.

    Apparently the US spent approximately 8 to 13.5 trillion dollars ( valued in 1996 dollars ) in the cold war with sworn enemy, russia since 1945. Now Ukraine is spilling Ukrainian blood to systematically destroy the russian military. Other than the precious Ukrainian blood which is being spilled, WHAT A DEAL. Pathetic Maga.

I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
