Here is an idea to get the budget under control - cut military spending by 60%, and add 30% to R&D and national infrastructure spending to hire the displaced military people.

That would be a net of 30% in savings.

We do not need 800 military bases around the world. The USA is beginning to look like grandiose overextended Rome during its decline and you people in Congress - Democrats and Republicans alike - are to blame for it.

I'd rather see the money spent on building infrastructure and research than on blowing up people and things.

If we didn’t blow up people we wouldn’t need to “Fight Terrorism”.

Where is the common sense??? Duh!!

Where are the statesmen???
