Transcript WHiHB national security as well as to the security of other free nations throughout the world. History of Foreign Aid Destructive Views on Foreign Aid expressed before U, S. House of Representatives by tion. ilvin E. O'Konski, Congressman from II iseonsin: I want to submit for your consideration this thesis: Every foreign aid bill the I nited Slales of America has adopted since 1919 has led to death and destruction for the United Slates of America. I would like to start with Germany, in 1918 to 19H5. I wonder how many of Veen read the debates in the Congress during those years and how many of ve.ei read the State Departmenl papers that wen- wrapped up in a nice little red book that they sent to your offices? How- many of you read the communiques exchanged between the German government and our government from 1918 to 195>5. Everyone of those communiques says, "Send us more monev into Gefr many and save us from the Bolsheviks. Thev did not use the word communism then it was the Bolsheviks. And we sent them lhe money. Vie bad the Dawes plan. We had lhe Young plan and I remember in 1930 and 1935 when we had eis many as ten million unemployed in th.- United States of America, we were building steel plants and we were building Sltika bomber plemls and sta- diums in Germany. Sure we saved the German people from the Bolsheviks, but we gave them Adolph Shickelgruber. Our foreign-aid program in Germany led to nothing but death and destruction fur the 1 nited States. From 1933 to 1936. when we recognized Russia, vve sent them boatload after boatload of farm machinery and in- dii-iiieel equipment, .unl the Soviet 1 n- ion under the lirsi live-vear plan was built up by technical experts we sent there. If it had not been for the first five-year plan and the help received from lln- United Stale's of America, communism would never have survived —or Bolshevism at that lime—in the Soviel 1 nion. Wc saved Bolshevism bo the Soviet Union. There again the- American foreign aid program led to death mid destruction for the I nited Stale--. In 1935 io 19:,'). we were shipping Scrap iron and high-octane gasoline to lhe- Japanese living to buy their friendship bv the carload. They had enough high-octane gasoline ami enough scrap iron from the United Slates in 1939 that they could fight tbe war for one year without doing anything bv themselves for fuel or scrap iron. Much of FACTS FORUM NEWS, October, 1955 lhal scrap iron is in the bellies of dead United Slales soldiers. Then from 1940 to 1946, we started the lend-lease program and here we really made the enemy thai we are facing in the world today. With thirteen billion dollars we took good care of Uncle Joe before we took care of our own interest at that time. It was under this lend-lease program that we also made Communist China strong. That is where Mao came into power with our lend-lease equipment. They had better equipment and better guns and tanks than we our- selves had. Il was this lime also when Ho Chi Minh, who conquered China, came into being with the aid of the American equipment handed out under the lend-lease program. In 1946, we started the UNRRA program. If the Communists believed in God. they would get down on their knees and thank God for the I'MM! \ program because we did more to help them entrench communism behind the Iron Cur- lain with UNRRA than anv program that they could possibly conceive of themselves. Then we had the Marshall plan in 1947. Do not be mistaken. When the Marshall plan was first enunciated, we invited the Soviet Union to come in and get their billions. Originally, the Marshall plan called for a foreign aid program of ten billion dollars a year and vve invited and begged the Soviet Union to come in and take part of it. In other words, the original Marshall plan was to give it to everybody who would come and help themselves. But the Soviets turned us down. Then we started the mutual security program and said now we are going lo give money only to those who fighl against communism. Now we have even changed that. We now have a program saying we will give the money to anybody who is not only against communism, but anybody who says thai they bate communism jusl a little bit less than they hale us. I say for your consideration that every foreign aid program adopted by this country has led to death and destruction for America. CAN WE WIN THIS WAY? Excerpts from a speech hy The Reverend Louis II. Evans, D.D., LL.D., I..H.D., Los Angeles, California; Minister.at-I.arge, Board of National Missions, Presbyterian Church, delivered before the Economic Club of Detroit, Michigan, May 24, 1954. These Communists are sea-ions. A man told me this story sometime ago. He was walking across the street ami a man accosted him and said, "I would like some money for a meal." He said, "I won't give you monev leer a meal. I don't know how you'd spend il. But I will give you the meal. Come with me." "No, if you don't mind, don't waste vour time. Just give me the money for the meal." "No, I'll feed you." So he did and lhe mail ale avidly. As they were going out eel the restaurant lhe man asked of the man who heul asked eilms, "You know. you weren't going to spend that monev for a meal, were you?" "No, sir." "Whal were you going to do with il ?" "Nou have been kind to me. I will tell you. We have a Communist book store two blocks down this slreel. We've got the message all sel up in type bul we ran out of paper, and three of mv comrades and I said we would go withoul ceiting for four days and give the equal of the money for four days of fee.nl. lo get lhe message out. You see, wc must get the message out!" Does that frighten you? How many ol us ever went without eating for one day. lo get our "message" out? One thing these Communists have taught us: that any untruth like communism, whole. heartedly propagated, will seem to get the best of truth like ours, half-heartedly propagated. At any given moment in history, that moment belongs to the enthusiastic and the dedicated . . . One GI, feeling that too many people were "passing the buck," and too few were carrying the responsibility, wrote ihis: "Population of the United States 145.000.000 People over 65 years of age 47,000,000 Balance left to do the work in the U. S. 98,000,000 People under 21 years of age, too young to work 51.000.000 Balance left to el., the- work 44.000.000 People working for the Federal Government 21.000.000 Balance left to do the work 23,000.000 People in the Armed Services 10.000.000 Balance left to do the work 13,000,000 City and State employees 12,800.000 Balance left to do the work 200.000 People in hospitals and institutions 126.000 Balance left to do the work 74,000 Bum- em.I others who won't work 62,000 Balance left to do the work 12,000 People in jail 11.998 Balance left to do the work 2 —And I'm doggoned tired of working alone."
