What Do You Think Defense Speding Should Cover?Submitted by NoName on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 23:14
Hypothetical situation. If you were to become president (I think I can safely assume most here want to cut the military) what would you do to the military?
Ron Paul argues about cutting the "military spending" and making it the "defense spending" that it should be. What do you think would be covered in the defense spending? I think that most would say first to shut down our bases across the world but what else?
Here are a couple of questions I can think of:
-What would happen to our carrier groups?
-Would you continue the Joint Strike Fighter?
-Would you develop new "next generation bombers" and also some of the newer ground vehicles to replace the aging Humvee?
-Would you take all of the forces across the globe and build new bases for them in America?
I think it would be cool to see some of the answers here and if you have other idea's please feel free to share them!
