The definition of insanity is doing more of the same expecting different results.

ISIL and Iraq have been on the news recently. U.S. policy led to the rise of ISIL because of the U.S. training and arming the Syrian Islamic terrorists from camps in Jordan and Turkey. The U.S. gave millions for weapons and training to these same people who are now destabilizing Iraq. The same folks who were using U.S. taxpayer money to kill Christians (Armenians, Assyrians, Antiochian Greeks, etc.), Kurds and other innocent Muslims inside Syria. Photos and videos surfaced in social media of blown up churches and how priests and nuns were being kidnapped.

President Obama is requesting $500 million to give to Syrian rebels — aka Syrian Islamic terrorists or al-Qaida 2.0.

How about we stop meddling in other nations’ internal affairs? Our roads need to be repaved in this U.S. How about we use $500 million for roads? I’m sick of driving on potholes! The U.S. Congress has the power of the purse, not the president. Call Congressman Jerry McNerney today to stop giving money to people who are killing innocent people in Syria and Iraq.
