And what about our absurd defense budget? The USA spends more on national defense than the entire world combined. Think about that. For most conservative politicians the issue of military spending is a sacred cow that should remain untouched because of how much money they receive from companies that benefit from the absurd amount of money we spend on the military. There is so much fraud, waste and abuse that goes on the military (I witnessed it firsthand). So you keep swallowing the bullshit fed to you by the talking heads.
You aren't talking to a Pub here bub...I call for an outright 40% cut to all federal policies and budgets.
You could work up to that number over the next 5 years if needed, but I want a much smaller federal government, defense included.
Don't try to put me in a pile.
