    Need To Reduct US Defense Spending Welfare

    Us spent near $1000 billion on defense in 2012. it spent nearly $350 billion in 2001.

    Why does the Us need to be the world's policeman?

    Why does US need to spend more than the top 10 spending countries combined on defense?

    Can we afford 50% retirement packages for military after 20 years of service?

    US defense spending should be tied to ACTUAL revenue of the prior fiscal year, not to percentage of GDP.
