I would also like America to get out of Europe.
Why does the American taxpayer have to spend money on bases in Europe anyways? This isn't 1950. The Europeans should fork it over and watch their own
Russia being a threat? Well they are more of a threat to Europe than the U.S. Let the people of Europe provide the military power and go into debt
themselves to counter Russia. Why does a guy in the U.S., who is in no danger of being overrun by Russian tanks, protect a European that doesn't put
the effort to protect himself?
And why is the U.S. in South Korea or Japan for that matter? South Korea and Japan have good enough economies to sustain a military that can counter
China and North Korea, let them spend for it.
And why is the U.S. in the Middle East? It would cost less to extract the massive amounts of oil from the North American oil shale and sands than it
would be to pacify and extract oil from a region that has had wars and instability for thousands of years and will probably have wars and instability
for thousands more.
I am tired of my tax money protecting other people. Who is watching for the interest of the American? Why is the interest of some Arab, European,
Israeli or whatever seemingly more important? They can take care of themselves.
This whole Russian problem can be partially attributed to other people in other countries expecting America to swoop in and help. Well the U.S. is 10
trillion in debt, I don't see anyone sacrificing anything for that fact except the U.S. taxpayer.
