  •  I Accept His Logic and Apply It to Defense. (7+ / 0-)

    The Nazis and the Soviets are defeated, and their governments are gone.

    We can stop defending against them now.

    It's time for this program to end.

    •  we could cut military spending in half (5+ / 0-)

      And still be spending more than Russia and China put together.  If the doctrine is to be able to fight two separate wars on two different continents (Europe and East Asia) at once, 50% reduction in military spending would still leave us plenty to do that ... assuming of course that military spending equates to military ability (probably lots of fat that can still be trimmed).

      Over $300 billion a year (with no tax increases) ... what could we do with that?

      Domestic politics is the continuation of civil war by other means.
