By a LONG way
We can cut the military spending's in HALF and STILL be the #1 military BY FAR!!!! Not good enough reasoning? We spend more then the top 6 nations COMBINED!!!
Conservative propaganda has us spending too much.
We've had too much authority in our government. It's not a left right issue. Obama has spent a lot more than Bush on the military, and yet less has been accomplished. It's time we submit a balanced budget to congress and that starts with decreasing unnecessary military spending.
We have a bigger military budget than the next 12 countries combined its crazy
Especcially in the area of bombings- they just aren't very effective.
Those flippin leaders of the United States spend so much in the military and have abandoned health and education! Curse those who support this cursed idea. I pluckin hate that! If they didn't spend much in the military, public colleges and public universities would be free along with giving books to the students with the expectancy to return them in the end of the semester, quarter, term, etc. just like in high school. In that case, we could also have free universal medical insurance and have free medical appointments as well as free prescription medicine as needed. I am for justice. Pluck those unnecessary things! If all countries spent not much in the military and didn't obsess over certain things or relations between any countries which wouldn't cause any conflict then, and if they spent much more on health and education, the world would be a much more educated place. It's on our hands. We must do this. We as humans must not abuse our intelligence because that is destroying the Earth. Intelligence has good and bad, depending on how we use it. We tend to call it good only, but it really is good and bad. That, in terms of math, is called absolute value. The greater the quality of intelligence, the greater potential good and bad effects it has. We have been misjudging what will bring better stability on relations by strengthening our military and weapons, which only brought deeper conflicts all around the world. It's time we stop and think and consider a different option, to stop with all our thought to end conflict by creating more conflict through intimidation. That is fighting fire with fire. Firefighters don't have a hose blowing fire on fire, but it's rather a chemical snow thing that is designed to stop fire. We have the power to make the choice today to shift our gears to this kind of life I just mentioned. Don't you think it's very wonderful? Yes, there are extremely bad countries that will probably want to take over USA as we give up our weapons, but for those of you who are Christians as well as me, we must pray and have faith that they won't do this. If they do, they will most likely be reduced because difficulties in life is called trial, which is suppose to help us become spiritually stronger. Remember that Jesus saves.
We need to cut spending by at least 50% if not more
Because the increase in other countries military spending, requires the U.S. to maintain, even increase the current military spending. It's nexus.
Although when most people talk about our defense spending, they think of the 716 billion dollars spent in 2012 and not the 521 billion dollars in the 2015 defense budget. We no longer spend more than the next 12 nations put together. And given are budget history, this price tag (521 billion) is actually average. Due to the size of the US economy, anywhere between 400 and 500 billion is considered a healthy amount of spending.
We need our military to protect ourselves from radical Islamic terrorists.
military does more 4 the nation than just fight one's enemies,
Are you kidding me? We need more money in the military!
