Default can't democrats make an honest living?

Has anyone considered the "leave them alone to manage their own affairs" approach? Or "provide help and advice when asked"?

The latest out of the mouth of Hillary is that not until US troops are withdraw from Iraq will Iraqis step forward to make difficult decisions and manage their own affairs. Why does that logic not apply equally to Africa?

As it is, I see white male democrats advocating interventionist policies partly because they are able to make a living at it. If they were to advocate that Africa be left alone they would quickly be out of a job. Then *gasp*, they would have to make an honest living, providing goods and services to people in exchange for payment.

I am all for helping the people of Africa. Just dont see much value in doing things for Africans that they are capable of doing themselves. For the John Prendergast democrat policy advocate types to do the most good, maybe they should mentor Africans to do their jobs.
