If you ask a conservative what conservatism stands for, I will guarantee that within the first 5 words they will use the terms "limited or small government".
So why does the so called conservative party support a big government foreign policy that we cannot afford. We have military bases all over the world. We still have military in places from countries we fought 65 years ago in WWII. We have secured S Koreas border, but not our own. We have 80,000 troops in Europe and almost 100,000 troops in Afghanistan. Was our war in Iraq worth the cost in terms of lives and financial costs?
Conservatives say they are against welfare, yet the support us giving billions in aid to other countries. Countries like Israel, which are capable of financing their own defense. And then we give billions more to the enemies of Israel, the Arab nations. We give billions to countries like Pakistan that have their own nuclear weapons, but we can't trust them enough to tell them in advance that we are coming to get OBL. Had we told them in advance OBL would still be alive today....yeah some ally.
Our country has billion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see, we need to cut spending drastically and we can do that from two sources, foreign spending and domestic spending.
I say let's start cutting foreign spending as a good Shepard takes care of his own flock first.
Come on so called conservatives, why do you support a foreign policy we cannot afford.
