Stop getting the U.S. involved in wars in which we have no national interests. We’re bankrupt.

We should be leaving Germany, Eastern Europe, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and forget about going to war with Syria!

Bring the military home, now. We can’t afford to be the world’s police force.

Bingo.

The U.S. military should be defending the United States, not other countries. One only has to read recent statements by folks like Lindsey Graham about the "need" for the U.S. military to take care of Libyans, Syrians, Afghans, etc. to wonder when it will be time for the U.S. military to defend their own fellow Americans.

Well the bases in europe do help US national interessts.
They are not there to defend Europe...
They are there so the US can use it´s force in regions near by like the ME.
Just for example without the base in germany the US would not be able to fight the war in Afghanistan and iraq.
If this wars have been in US interesst is a different topic.
But fact is if you want to be able to project force around the globe then you will need forreign military bases.
