Comment: Good...That's the POINT!

Good...That's the POINT!

It's about time the Neo-Con, war-mongering, Arab-haters get their due.

If we weren't mis-using our military (by occupying every square inch on earth) we wouldn't need that many troops.

The U.S. military is being used as the biggest welfare program in the world.

Because if we were minding our business and not policing the world we could get by just fine with a military about 50% the size it is today.

Don't get me wrong, I want the most advanced military on earth. I have the utmost respect for our military when used to defend this country.

But what do 50,000 people do in Germany all day?

1. They protect Germany so the Germans can grow their economy to the richest in the world.

2. They spend U.S. taxpayer money on the German economy

The same goes thing for Japan, Korea, Phillipines, Okinawa, Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Israel etc etc. who depend on us defending them.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
