News reports indicate that Republicans want to increase funding for the Pentagon and pay for it by reducing funding for domestic social programs. So, it seems that taking care of our own domestic needs and problems should play second fiddle to funding stupid wars?
What is the point of a nation that puts the needs of weapons above the needs of the poor, the elderly, the sick and those in need of education? Is this not what we are using our military to do abroad? Are we not spending billions to keep dictators from operating their police states while their people suffer? And this is what the Republicans want for us? Go figure!
