I don't know how well you have thought your whole premise through. You must remember that the United States is the worlds only super power. Why do we need to be a super power you may ask? Because the U.S. has more enemies than any other nation in the world. Think about how many countries would love to rule us and believe me they would start pumping the oil and gas out of this country like you wouldn't believe.<quoted text>
How much defense do you need??
We now spend approx. 739 billion on defense, while the next 10 biggest defense spenders in the world spend approx 488 billion combined!!! That all of them put together spend 251 billion less than the U.S.To me thatís enough, more than enough. To you there is no such thing as enough since you have no common sense. The military is always getting arms they donít really want or need because somebody in Congress thinks it will help him get elected and put some money in supporterís pockets.
When it comes to brood sows and sperm donors who live in ghettos you have no interest in their welfare, you canít. You just make fun of them and doing so seems in your mind to make you a big man. And God still loves you, I doubt God has any respect for you since his Son had just the opposite philosophy, even our forefathers thought it was important. What small amount of money that goes to "promote the general welfare" goes to help a hell of a lot of people who are not the pieces of trash you see in your feeble mind.
I really donít understand how people like you sleep at night,a whole lot of beer would be my guess.
Also the U.S. has a very expensive shield. That shield covers the protection and defense of all the Free World and allies. Other countries do not have to spend as much on national defense as the good old U.S.A. protects them. What are the real numbers that the Russians, N. Koreans, and Chinese spend? I doubt that anyone actually knows for sure. Materials, labor, and pay of the Chinese military is much cheaper in China than here. I am sure that China's military is not feed, housed, or cared for anywhere near the level of our troops. That is a huge cost saver. China's research and military development is also much less costly since they are stealing our military secrets.
It is expensive and has many burdens being the worlds only super power. Like it or not that is how it is. I have a web site listed below that tries to give how much every country spends on national defense.
As for the rest of your statement Redneck can answer for himself.
