Weird. From what I have seen, US Spends 2 trillion dollars on healthcare every year. Because of this, I will assume every other statistic is made up as well.

Spot on! All of this post is BS.

1. Heath care on the US is ~17% of GDP. $14.2 trillion x 17% = $2.4 trillion.

2. Direct military cost in Iraq from 2001-2011 is $757.8 billion

One of the posters is about making everyone literate. Besides not being possible, the creator of these posters is illiterate.

NO, they couldn't, because the Money is lent into existence. The problem is the fact that we still borrow money from a private bank, which just makes money out of thin air. so this post is point less....

and for ending
slavery,
Genocide,
Fascism,
Nazism
and a few other 'unpleasant' institutions and regimes

I agree.... The US alone has spent 10's of Trillions of dollars since Lyndon Johnson's "Great Society" in the late '60s and has only had an impact of just a percentage point or 2 on the poverty rate. Sometimes (actually alot of the time) the answer is not just throwing large wads of cash at problems, unless of course you are a socialist or Democrat.

Throwing cash at a problems always ends with people skimming upwards of 75% off the top.

All that food sent to Africa and the people it was intended for might have got 10%

bullshit stats ,!
if you sent money to affrica to end poverty, they reproduce like locust and 10 years later you have a new problem of famine with double the population to feed

sending money to africa will not resolve any problem.
they need to change their society .

Forget about the stats, if the numbers are exact or anything. Point is this money could have been used for something moral instead of making war.
