The money that buys these drones and supports the military/socialist spending is money that is borrowed and "printed" out of thin air.
What you are seeing is fruits from "debt". Think about it, any smuck with a credit card can buy fancy expensive things. Does that make them rich? No, because he will have to pay off his debt in one way or another eventually.
Now the person who buys all his fancy things with 0 debt afterwards would be considered rich.
If this borrowing would continue perpetually without any consequences then we would be rich, but the fact is that debt eventually catches up with you and it has caused us to be enslaved by those who own our debt.
