While its obviously not just cut and dry that we could eliminate a huge
chunk of military spending the rest of your little rant is a fallacy,
i do agree that our economy will most likely fall apart but its not because
we are not at war and even if that were the case then how in goodness
name can you not see a problem with that?
The united states, all by its lonesome, has spent more than half the WORLD
budget on military and your asking me to believe that cutting that, even by
half is gonna make us weak? REALLY?
War mongering and political BS is utterly useless in solving this problem,
one that if you had been paying attention was here all along, the idea of
unlimited business growth and never ending credit lines is completely foolish,
a business cannot sustain unlimited growth, it simply is not possible, there
will always be ups and downs, there will always be mistakes made that ruin
their customer appearance leading to loss of profit.
The mistake that everyone seems to be making is blaming one side or the
other, blaming the leeches or the rich people, the democrats or republicans,
i find it comical that anyone can look at our government and think in any
way those fools are out to help us........ they both have their reasons and
in all honesty i think they work together and give the appearance of partisan
politics just for the people.
The claims you make are patently false by one simple little thing, the last
pres was mr bush a republican and things went to crap under his rule,
they have simply continued the whole affair of band aiding problems and
not fixing them so that they may keep their budgets and spend spend spend.
What we really need is actual responsibility you know, the kind where we
pay back our debts, rebuild our infrastructure and actually fix the problems
we have, not just band aid them away for a couple more years. which both
parties are clearly doing.
