Jacob Hornberger on Neil Cavuto: US Aid to Egypt Spawned Hatred

Via Hiram Reisner at NewsMax (H/T Tom Knapp):

“We need to be asking ourselves as Americans exactly what the Egyptian people are asking themselves: What business does our government have supporting a dictatorship, for 30 years, that the Egyptian people now are finally protesting against,” Jacob Hornberger told Fox News’ Neal Cavuto. “Americans need to be challenging their government, the same way the Egyptians are challenging their dictatorship, that our government has supported.”

Hornberger, president of The Future of Freedom Foundation, also contended that most foreign aid to dictatorship-run governments ends up used against the populace — or lining the leaders’ pockets.


According to wikipedia,

In 1989, Hornberger, along with Richard M. Ebeling, founded The Future of Freedom Foundation whose mission is to present an uncompromising moral, philosophical, and economic case for the libertarian philosophy.

Hornberger served three terms on the platform committee of the national Libertarian Party. In 1996, the Libertarian Party awarded Hornberger its Thomas Paine award for outstanding communication of libertarian principles. In 2000, Hornberger attempted to gain the Libertarian Party nomination for President of the United States, but lost to Harry Browne.

Hornberger ran as independent candidate in Virginia in the 2002 US Senate race, receiving 106,055 votes for 7.1% of the total vote

    Most Americans are too used to a life of relative comfort to do this sort of thing. Even the poor here are not third world kind of poor.

    Hard to say what will happen if that comfort is suddenly yanked away. They may not have the instincts and training to know what to do…much like setting a zoo animal or pet out in the wilds. More likely to get eaten or die of hunger than anything else.

    That was in ref. “Americans need to be challenging their government, the same way the Egyptians are challenging their dictatorship, that our government has supported.”
