“My problem is that when politicians (of both parties) make of a list of 10 places to cut, nine of those 10 places tend to be Defense. That’s not right. That sort of cutting isn’t done because anyone wants to be fiscally responsible; that sort of cutting is done because some folks hate the military.”
You are absolutely right. That’s why Obama won’t tell us where the money is coming from for his “jobs program”, until after it’s passed, and then Congress will be pushed into a corner to cut defense, now that the spending plan is already passed.

The Democrat party has been taken over by the progressives. Half of the Republican party the same. Is it any wonder that with the progressive agenda to destroy this nation and burn our Constitution, they would cut our military spending at every opportunity. The only reason they have not eliminated the department of defense entirely is it would alert “we the people” to their intentions and we would then hang every one of them.
The world wide serfdom the progressives desire so strongly can only be attained if this nation and its Constitution no longer exist.
