America and world poverty

US is the problem not the poor. US is 5% world population and uses 33% of world resources and they have a military to keep it so.

India total government spend  $263bn for 1100bn people (2012 budget)

UK health budget                    $176bn annually for 50m many wealth inflicted illnesses (2012)

US military budget                    $650bn annual spend to keep its way of life  (2012)

One US government department is three times the size of India

If we tried to live like Americans we will need four more planets like earth
