Trump wants to spend more money on the military.
Not more money on Social Security.
Not more money on Medicare.
Not more money on education……or healthcare.
There is no money for any of those things.
But more money for the military…..Yes…..That is what we need to spend more money on.
We already spend over $600,000,000,000.00 on the military every single year.
12 months = $600,000,000,000.00
That is more money then the next 6 countries combined.
Yet Trump thinks if we just spend more money on the military everything will be great.
The problem isn’t a lack of money spent.
The problem is the money that is spent is completely wasted with zero accountability.
Private contractors are ripping off the taxpayers on projects like the F-35 and The USS Gerald R Ford.
Good ol Capitalism getting in the way or our ability to wage endless war.
We have been at war for 15 consecutive years.
Nobel Peace prize winner Barack Obama has waged war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Libya and STILL we have nothing to show for it.
The answer is NOT more war.
Yesterday Obama was in Laos explaining that the USA will provide 90 million dollars to help remove 80,000,000 unexploded US bombs dropped during the Vietnam war.
The United States dropped more bombs on Laos than on Germany and Japan combined during world War II.
All those bombs accomplished nothing. The war was still lost.
Endless war is not the answer.
At least it has not been the answer for the last 15 years.
