      I do believe with all my heart that certain people want to keep us in a perpetual state of war so that a) we have an excuse to keep feeding the MIC and c) because there are sick fucks who get sexually aroused by it.

      But even without war I think it'd be a hell of a fight to cut defense spending down to appropriate levels despite that rrecent poll showed that more than 60% of the electorate says we should cut dfense spending to balance the budget.

      If peace and public opinion won't end this gargantuan waste, and I don't think they will, then what might it take?

      Ds see human suffering and wonder what they can do to relieve it. Rs see human suffering and wonder how they can profit from it.
