  •  The UNITED STATES spends that (2+ / 0-)

    much for military...Obama didn't create the military-industrial complex nor the national security state...it's fair to criticize him for not trying harder to reduce them, but you can't lay the full blame on him...the entire government, and unfortunately most voters as well, have historically been very supportive of absurd levels of military spending, which has gone on pretty much unabated since WWII.
