When he guts our national defense and we reap those consequences; you will see how bad he is.
Our defense budget should be cut in half MINIMUM. We have 11 carrier groups - no other country has more than 1 and most of those are POS carriers.
I don’t understand conservatives who hate big government except for “big defense”. I am a conservative who says big defense is part of big government and also part of the problem.
We are broke, we have to cut spending in govt everywhere. And yes, that means, GASP. The military. We have 11 carrier groups, we don’t need to be on the ground everywhere. We have a great navy and air force. Bring our troops home and stop the invasion by mexico.
We are broke, we can project power with half the budget we have now. The military industrial complex is a beast unto itself.
I am a pure conservative. Big govt of any kind is bad.
What Paul doesn’t understand is that the Ayatollah Khomeini was downright moderate compared to the nutjubs running the show now.
They’re hellbent on bringing the Mahdi to earth by washing the world in blood. The Ayatollah thought they were psycho and kept them from having real power when he was alive and he was an evil bastard.
I don’t mind that you don’t like Paul..and I’m not exactly a full-blown supporter. That being said, When I listen to him, I don’t think he wants to gut our defense...I think last night he said he wants a strong national defense. I just don’t think he wants to be all over the world in hassles that amount to U.S. money being spent, our soldiers blood being spilled and yet it’s not a war.
I don’t have any doubt that Paul would go to war. But that’s the key..I think he will demand that troops be sent with a fully declared war.
