Military spending is not a problem as it is mandated by the Consitution. Romney is going to cut domestic spending.
Spending for defense is great. Spending for the sake of your contractor friends that are in the war industry not so much. We can and must spend smarter in our military. We already have a standing army and technology to defend our borders from invasion from ANY THREAT, but we do not place them at our border. No one will argue with spending for defense, but there has to be a point that we see that any further spending does nothing to increase our defense, right? Just because we are allowed to spend on something does not mean that we shouldn't do it wisely.

If nothing else, the responses on this thread are a great example of why RINOs like Romney are dangerous. “Conservatives” lack the moral courage to oppose them and happily encourage more military spending as some kind of federal jobs program. I’m not making any judgements on whether military spending needs to be increased or decreased but our founders warned against both debt and unnecessary military action.
