The Dem's are extremely weak on defense and loathe the military


Help me out here: what is the proper role of the US military? A large military is extremely expensive (right, fiscal conservative?), so why is this form of high gubmint spending better than any other in a time when I think most people would agree that we need tow ork down government expenditures/


proper role of the military is to defend the U.S. from attack and whatever our elected govt. leaders choose worthy to put military forces.

Military complex is just like anything else run by the military, run by good old boys and girls who give favors to cronies and hire alot of incompetents to run things and have layers and layers of management. If they cleaned up all the waste in all govt spending, it would be a good thing but it ain't going to don't just single out the military for wasterful spending brewer.
