NOTE: As the "Democratic" administration "winds down the war" and "brings the troops home", the President's "Defense" budget requests seek an increase for “Security” “Security”!
According to the Department of Defense’s 2010 Base Structure Report Report,, as of 2009, the US
military maintained 662 foreign sites in 38 countries around the world.
US spends nearly 500% more for "Defense" than China -- China just loans ns us the money to do so! Otherwise they would just blow it on even more Infrastructure nfrastructure and Education. ducation.
Now let’s see Tea Party candidates,, what if we only spent 1 1/2 times what the next 10 countries spent on "Defense"? We’d still be way ahead of China. Surely we'd be "safe". What couldn’t we then afford?
