Sounds to me that you’re a proponent of military keynesianism?

IMO the benefit of properly spent defense spending results in a safer existence for my family, countrymen and myself.

I could care less what effect the dollars thus spent have on the economy.

As to your first point, since the taxpayers you're taking the money spent on entitlements from would have spent that money similarly (with less going to junk food, porn & booze presumably) I don't see what benefit entitlement spending has to the larger economy at all.

Do you think restoring the King of Kuwait to his throne and protecting the King of Saudi Arabia's throne is 'properly spent defense spending'?
