Hey! Slow your roll Prof.
I would consider myself on the right. Not the so called "Republican Right" because there is no such true thing. But, on the Constitutional Right.
And I agree with you. Shut the freaking bases down over seas. Not 90% of them. All of them. Bring the men and women home. Enough of this "we have to police the world" mentality.

This is why the people are losing benefits and services they expect from government while foreign lands are receiving billions in financial aid.
The entire thing is nothing more than a piss poor attempt to get people begging for more government intervention.
Sad thing is, people do not see it. They see the D versus R argument.
