Agreed! We already spend more than all our allies combined - Rome fell so will we - the corruption is rampant - poverty is growing while we spend this kind of money on defense! Judgement Day!

I agree Compassion, there are way too many national threats including Korea, Iran and islamic terrorists wanting to pulverize our country. I'm glad for this and don't mind my taxes going for this cause instead of supporting uninvited illegal tress passers who laugh at our immigration laws.

" funds the war in Afghanistan"

BOTH the Dems and GOP care more about building Afghanistan than USA.
We build what Afghanistan never had to begin with while cutting back on our own Veterans care spending.

Who knows in these contracts who is getting kick backs and family members getting high paid positions.

You are to stupid to realize that like Rome are military spending is killing us, our elderly are subjected to cut backs as our our veterans (not that you care less) while more money goes to a grotesque war machine.

You are to stupid to grasp the corruption behind much of this.

The problem is out defense spending is fat as is and so much of it is wasted and that will NEVER change.

As a Dem not only do I agree but will add that the FAILED BIAS media continues to give Obama the BS artist a free pass, the problem is the GOP is no different thus Obama won but he is a BS artist and will say one thing only to turn around and do the exact oppossite.

Look at the Patriot act, the media tore Bush up for it but looks the other way as Obama the con artist not only kept it but wanted to add to it and you are 100% correct about the countless killed in drone attacks which kill countless civilians ,the media again tore Bush up over only to suck Obama's #### and he is worse.

Next election I will vote Independent candidate as both parties suck azz.
