unfortunately, the reality is; the government has decreased the salaries of contractors and completely removed the jobs for some contractors, (i.e. today, a 4-man shop is a 2-man shop); government employees have been on a pay raise freeze since 2008,.. as much as we want to divert and deflect SPEA,.. it is already happening by the pen and phone; only by voting into office the people whom are willing to nullify the pen and phone can our military return to America's top priority as it once was before the hope and change of 2008

Are you crazy? Closing it down would be a waste. Let’s turn it into the world’s largest immigration processing center. We already have a hospital, new commissary, single and family quarters, recreation facilities, etc. We could stop catering to those selfish soldiers, their families and those military retirees who just keep on taking and taking. Job opportunities would be great and every parish around Fort Polk would be hiring Spanish language teachers. We could even collect rent from the Democrats who could run a voter registration office. How much better this would be than training soldiers for some future conflict that’s sure to happen.

It's easy to call for war when you've never fought one.

That's where you "anti-war" nuts are wrong. Nobody on here called for war. They are calling for the ability to defend ourselves. Why do you people have such a problem with the difference?

We didn't "defend ourselves" in Iraq and we're not defending ourselves in Afghanistan.

We defended those who needed our help. Obama deserted them, and made it look like "America" deserted them. His sown seeds will be reaped by our children and grandchildren.

You are no patriot. Patriots are people who are willing to sacrifice their life to defend people in need. You are a selfish, self-righteous nobody.

I didn't fight a secret war in Nicaguagra so you could come on this site and badmouth Lady Liberty and a true patriot like that!

If you fought a war there, you'd be able to spell it. You are a liar and a troll.
