In reply to comment: Ron purists consider this, (see in situ)

This is such a ridiculous analogy.

The 2 situations are nothing alike.

Ron didn't want to cut the programs because people rely on them. They have to be eased out - you can't just take money away from people that put their hard-earned cash into the system.

The troops don't NEED to be in countries abroad. And you don't have to be a genius to realize that you don't need more military expenditures in order supply food. That's already in the overall budget.

I don't understand how people come up with these insane comparisons that are completely biased towards their side and yet fail the logic test right off the bat.
