We are gonna try something new today, here in General Discussion, we are going to have a single Intuitive Discussion thread.
Welcome to the new experimental board called "Intuitive Discussion" This board was created for all the threads made to build meaningful discussion, and ones unsuitable for such a broad category such as "General Discussion." This board was created for the topics of more educational and intellectual value; topics such as education, politics, law, current events, technology, science, and much more.
This section was created to serve a purpose. That purpose is to provide a specific forum for people to thoroughly discuss and voice their opinion on topics of great value. In this section however, there will be stricter rule enforcement. And infractions will be handed out a lot more liberally. Here are some reminders of what we will be keeping our eye on:
Absolutely no flaming other members. You may disagree or argue with someone, but don't turn it into an emotional post. Rather back up your claims or opinions with support.
Carefully type out your responses, thoughts, and opinions.
Be well-educated on the topic, and keep it that way.
Voice your thoughts and opinions maturely and intellectually.
Follow the basic rules of the forum, taking careful consideration of flaming and spamming.
This section is for educated, informative, mature, and intellectual discussion. Keep it that way. If you do not post in this manner, nor will others.
Keep on topic as best as you can. Try not to steer off.
No religious discussions unless previously approved by staff.
If you want this to stick around follow the rules.
What we are discussing:
Should governments stop helping other countries with money and focus on its own problems(jobs, taxes, homeless, healthcare)?
A country is a large entity and can focus on many things at once. In my opinion, countries will always need to assist other nations, in any way necessary. Just how the world is going to work! How that assistance is given, however, might need a tweak here and there. The other things, leave to delegation and state officials.
On a side note: LOL intuitive discussion is back. That one hit off well back when I wrote those guidelines you pasted up there! Good luck, Thor.
I think, if they focused a lot more on their problems, they could be in a lot less debt. It shouldn't be other countries responsibilities for those that are poor, and are having money troubles. Its not ours countries problems, but theirs. Like its understandable when a natural disaster happens and they need as much aid and help as they can. Like the millions of dollars that goes into the army and such, if they cut back on them, and worked more towards education and health care, the states could see more and more successful people coming out.
I think we should help out other countries here and there, but focus mainly on our problems. We are so into debt it's insane. Seems like it just keeps adding up and up. Feels like the government would rather help other countries out rather than our own. It's just ridiculous.
We have treaties with other countries that we offer them protection as long as they supply us with oil, why do you think we protected kuwait/saudia arabia in dessert storm? ( btw this is why Osama Bin Laden hated us because we were protecting the holiest Muslim land and were infidels.)
The us wouldn't be as powerful as we are now without the political agreements with other countries.. Its just our part to help them.
