Yeah, cut all funding to multicultural and immigration organisations.

Also, cut all foreign aid.

THEN spend all the money that has been saved on our defense.

As far as im concerned our defense has been weakened by traitor politicians who need to face a firing squad.

I doubt it.

It was the Libs who created a hole in our defense by decommissioning our three destroyers without anything to replace them.

On top of that they always had the oppurtunity to buy more F-111s from the Boneyard in the States to keep our F-111s up and running for years and years.

They are such an excellent aircraft that the new 'super hornets' dont even come close.
