Don't think that means we should have to cut 70% of our military, though.
Why do we have it then, just to look scary and pretend? If they are impotent, then let's reign them all in...no need to keep this global military presence, and why? If there is nothing to gain, we can look the other way.....We could save TRILLIONS....

We don't spend trillions of dollars on the military. If you want to cut something, let's stop sending billions of dollars to countries that hate us.

Exactly RACE. We live in a disposable society, and I think the banks are in on it. It keeps us in debt ;)

I'm seriously thinking about it. But I'm afraid that once I get started, my quick email is gonna turn into a ten page government gripe report. Then I'll be on the NSA watch list. Again. There'll be a drone hovering over my house.

You forfeit all future griping rights unless you make your opinion known now when it can have some chance of affecting the outcome.

I am dead serious about this.

No need to be dead!

It's done! Was only able to email Durbin- he's for the strike. Had to leave FB posts for Kirk and Kinzinger. Now I'm marked.

Thanks.

We could do both, and we should really cut back on excessive defense spending, if we are gonna restrict our Commander in Chief, and ignore our global commitments and purpose?....
