Let's see, Israel is the largest foreign recipient of our taxpayer's dollars. Israel gets $3 billion each year. Israel has 7.5 million citizens. If I do my math correctly that works out to $400 per Israeli each year of American taxpayers wealth being redistributed to them. Is this an example of socialism? A few years ago I backpacked throughout South and Central America for a year. I met many Israelis along the backpack circuit. They say that 75% of young Israelis like to get out and see the world for about the same time as I was traveling. I couldn't help but think that American taxpayer dollars is subsidizing that lifestyle. Israelis are nice people but they, as our European allies are, wealthy too.

Voters at polling places accross Northern Virginia are experiencing long lines due to high voter turnout in the region. Speaking with election volunteers outside of a polling place in Alexandria, I was told lines have been been steady all day. Volunteers working for Barack Obama and Mitt Romney outside the location, said they believe the vote will be split between the two candidates in Virginia. Voters, including minorities, had no problems complying with Virginia's Voter I.D. law.
