Should America spend less money on its military?

Asked by: Britboy803
  • Our military budget is bloated to the point of absurdity.

    We spend over half of our national budget on the military- more than the next nine top spending nations COMBINED. It's grotesque.
    Other developed nations have proper healthcare, excellent education, better standard of living...We spend billions on experimental fighter jets that never even see a test flight. But screw programs like Head Start and paying teachers what they're worth.

  • Why keep it so high?

    I really can't see any reason that America's military needs a 400% bigger budget for their army than China (the second highest budget in the world). I think they should concentrate on funding other more important things like maybe public healthcare and proper education, maybe even free university or paying of the debt.

  • Why do we need it?

    We spend more money on our military the any other nation in the world. You know why China and Russia don't spend too much? Because they don't need it. They released that military conquest, or at least the military, is just a waste of time. Although however flawed they may be to our perspective, they spend less on their military and still have the best troops. Russia has its Spetsnaz soldiers which are probably the best. China has over 2 million troops, more than the United States, but still spends less. Why need a military anyway? I don't see any actual wars going on. Terrorism isn't a war. It's just a problem of violence within society. And who the hell said we, the American nation, had to travel half way across the world to go to a desert waste land where the people there don't even care. I don't see any Muslims or Muslim nations asking and begging for American aid, dominance, and control. The only, true reason we have a military is do dominate the world and control it. Our own US foriegn policy is to spread Democracy. That's similar to what the USSR did, spreading Communism. But, to get to the point, America doesn't need a large nor any big government spending unless their is an actual need for it. But who's gonna stop the US government when we're all sitting on our devices and looking at these arguments and not taking a stand for anything?

  • Stop spending money on the military.

    You don't have to spend more money on the American military because America already has 800 bases and all the other countries added together only have 30 bases. You could spend the money on education and you can donate them to the poor because they have barely anything they need. You can also spend money on people who have to go to college or schools and hospitals to heal people. Please agree with us!

  • We don;t want to take away the army.

    I'm just saying we don't need to spend almost 600 billion on defense. Even if we cut 100 billion, we would still be the best military by far. I see most of the opposing argument involves ISIS domination. Are you idiots? You think that ISIS, a group with 30,000 members, half of which have no training, could possibly handle the U.S Military? ISIS can't win. Remember what happened to Al Qaeda? It attacked us, and we dominated them. Besides, the U.S isn't alone. Russia is fighting ISIS. ISIS can't defeat civilization. It just won't happen. But the point is, we don;t need so much spending.

  • We spend so much more than we need!!!

    Not only do we spend more than we need, but half of what the military spends doesn't even work or is never used. If we, instead of paying for things like broken tanks and glitchy fighter jets we payed for things like education, then we would STILL be the strongest military in the world BY FAR!!!!!!!!

  • We spend too much

    No one is suggesting that we STOP funding the military, and it's ridiculous to even consider that. However, it's also ridiculous that we spend more on our military than the world's other 9 top spenders COMBINED. This is completely unnecessary, and we could easily use this money to better support our education and healthcare systems. It's common sense. Don't stop funding the military entirely, but we certainly don't need to continue funding it superfluously.

  • Spending more on our military supports economic growth

    Here’s an example, before the U.S. started to fight the war in Iraq the military budget was at $518 billion, when America stepped into the Iraq war our military spending went up to $700 billion. For every $1 billion spent on our national’s defense, 10 thousand jobs were created. If you do the math that is 7 million jobs created from 2003 to 2011 because the U.S. spent more on it national defense system.

  • No we should not spend less on military

    If we spend less on the military then hegemony will be harder to keep up with. In order to seem strong we need to be strong. To do so, we need to spend the same amount of money or possibly more to increase our technology and weapons to be able to protect ourselves from attacks. We need the military to keep us alive.

  • Our protection is our life

    What would happen if we were to be under attack from ISIS and part of America was under their control. But, they have your family as hostages and others people as well. If we stop funding the military this could happen, Better protection. Or better education? I would pick protection because my life and family come first than any other thing.

  • So u would rather die?

    Would u rather have freedom or be controlled by ISIS? It is not that hard to answer. America spends more money on military for a good reason. And that is, They help protect America and Americans'. Because of the military budget we, as Americans, can keep our freedom and our money.

  • Military helps to protect us.
