what is the difference between defense spending and social security,medicare
1. the us military has 1 function to enusre peace in the streets of this coun
try without that peace people would not be able to go to work live in their
homes do anything that people would call living.
2. the us government has the moral obligation to enusre that those men and wom
en have the best systems and technology we can give them because if we dont
they die and anyone with an ounce of morality doesnt cheap out on systems boug
ht at walmart prices.
3. the simple fact defense corporations build those systems but those compone
ents are also made by the civilian sector who employ millions of people they
both in turn create wealth and that same wealth is used to do what?
4. pay people by job creation and that in turns means wealth creation which me
ans tax revenue to the government who collects that wealth and in turns pays
for those social programs.
5 may not be that clear for some but people need to take off the tunnel vision
glasses and look at the larger picture.
6 all total and this is a ball park figure there are over 100 million people
in this country whose sole means of survival is the us government.
to make it perfectly clear i do feel that defense needs a dire reformation
seriously 900 bases? hell no we dont my points of contention is that peopel
are so blinded by political ideology they never once think of the ramification
s of what that action will bring to millions of americans.
this country has a revenue problem it has a tax problem because government has
grown to the point where it is now "TOO BIG TO FAIL" and the reason it is fail
ing well pick one whatever you want.
but im telling you this rasing taxes will never fix anything and the biggest drain to this country are those 100 million on social security and
medicare and medicaid.
trillions of job and wealth destruction
noone has to agree with that assesment everyones free to disagree but they sure better think about the effect of what they want to accomplish.
its not about the people its about this nations survival and for this nation to survive read my signature and no im not saying throw people under the
bus but when people say cut defense thats what they are doing they never look at the magnitude of those actions.
