North Korea MORE dangerous while Obama CUTS our defense...

- increase taxes
- reduce our national defense
Regarding the latter, he REDUCES our national defense in this rapidly increasingly dangerous world while North Korea (not to mention China, Iran, Venezuela, Syria, et. al.) are INCREASING their capability.
Have you seen the trailer of the documentary called "33 Minutes?" I encourage you to do so and then let our esteemed democrat congresspeople know that they'd better help America prepare...or their precious domestic social programs will not matter.
Check out this trailer by going to Web Link . org and click on "33 Minutes"

The United States military budget makes up 48% of the world's total military spending. Our military budget is at least 3x greater than the second leading country (which I believe is Japan) at ~$546 billion. The current economic climate does not support such high levels of spending, cuts need to be made, and the military needs to take its fair share as well. Obviously the amount to be cut should not be one that makes the United States more susceptible, but just like everyone else, the military is going to have to learn how to do more with less money.

Oh...I see Obama's logic...and yours. Give BILLIONS to ACORN and other useless domestic social programs while spending NOTHING on our MILITARY and in fact REDUCE its budget. Oh yes...let's REDUCE our nuclear stockpile while the world is becoming much more dangerous.
Reducing our nuclear stockpile puts millions and millions of freedom-loving people in this world AT RISK of being in the crosshairs of rogue unstable dictators with their finger on the nuclear trigger.
So Pleasanton Parent...did you view the trailer of the film "33 Minutes?" If so, what do you think about it? If you haven't, why not?

Really? Wow.......No where in my statement did I say I was in support of providing funds to ACORN, nor was there any mention of any other support or disapproval of spending on other social programs. The original post was in regards to government military spending, not government spending in general. What would you like to discuss? Please choose a topic (and stick with it) and I'm more than happy to discuss it with you.
Additionally I love your "all or nothing" approach to military spending. Maybe you should take a 360 approach to your fact finding instead of limiting it to one heavily biased source. The fact is there are cuts to certain military programs, but military spending as a whole is up 4% compared to last year.
I'd love to follow your logic Paul, but the truth of the matter is there isn't any to be found.
