Giving billions to foreign farmers

The G8 nations have decided to give $20 billion to farmers in Africa to help them grow food.
Meanwhile, farmers local to where I live can't get loans to plant crops. And they with the rest of us will be taxed to help provide that $20 billion.
There's something wrong with this picture. I have nothing against helping others out when you have money to do it with. But it's wrong to go into debt to do it.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!
- Samuel Adams

No constitutional authority exists for the FedGov to participate in charity or welfare, which includes foreign aid.

Reminds me of a statement by President J. Ruben Clark, speaking in the October 1949 General Conference: "Do not think that all these usurpations, intimidations, and impositions are being done to us through inadvertancy or mistake, the whole course is deliberately planned and carried out; its purpose is to destroy the Constitution and our Constitutional government."
