Have you ever wondered why the United States spends more on the military than any other country in the world?
Our country is in financial disarray & we are sinking under our level of national debt & we desperately need for our tax dollars to be spent on fixing the things wrong with our country. But we keep spending for the military at the top of list. Why do you think this is? Is it because the Military Industrial Complex is making tremendous amounts of money from the wars in which we are involved? Doesn’t it make more sense to cease fighting these wars & bring our troops home & free-up this money to be spent on things that will directly benefit the citizens who are paying the taxes? We cannot force democracy down the throats of citizens of other countries – democratic ideas have to come from within. We are getting innocent people killed in these countries & we are getting our military personnel killed as well. We need to balance America’s budget by cutting the military budget in half (even cutting it in half, we will still be spending more than the other countries).
