Forget the world getting freebees on our taxpayers. Bill them or screw them.

Hey — this is what a majority voted for. The US is going to become a European-style Welfare State. More benefits, more taxes and less defense. Obama has been very clear about where he wants to take the country and apparently a majority wants it. Less defense means more free stuff!

You could cut the military budget 30-40% and never sacrifice a thing. As a matter of fact, we’d have more and better hardware. How?
1. Stop playing politics with the budget. Boeing gets a five year contract for 60 planes, but the funding is only one year at a time. So, instead of building a dedicated production line each plane is hand built. If it’s a multi-year procurement, fund the whole thing at once so they can set up automated lines and get better long-term pricing.
2. Stop playing politics with the contracts. The small business and minority set asides and gimme’s for political supporters. They’re hideously inefficient and expensive.
3. Get rid of the Greenies. The contracts all have ludicrous green requirements that run the cost through the roof.
4. Stop buying things the military doesn’t want and can’t use just because the plant is in some Senator’s district.
Nothing is more expensive than NOT being ready to go to war. Nobody gets attacked because they’re too strong.

I'm pretty sure the cuts leave defense contractors feeling less safe.

I'm pretty sure reduced defense contractor contributions, in turn, leave a lot of Neo-con office-holders feeling less safe.

I''m pretty sure those Neo-con office-holders, in turn, to get defense funding restored, will be more likely to provoke global brushfires that leave a lot of people in other countries feeling less safe.

But defense cuts making Americans less safe? I seriously doubt it.

I’ sure weakening our military will make us safer. Just as disarming all law-abiding citizens on school property makes our children safer, disarming the country that leads the free world will make citizens of the world safer. The logic is irrefutable - just ask any liberal.
