Well we could just not increase taxes and move tax money from the army/navy/airforce to things that actually help us until we are actually attacked instead of bankrupting the country so that a few rich guys can get more oil platforms and water purification contracts.
NO WAIT IT WILL NEVER WORK!!!! IT'S TOO LOGICAL YOU DEMOCRATIC BLEEDING HEART PUSSY!!! WHAT IF WE ARE ATTACKED?
That's what the national guard is for, we could bring them back from overseas where they are nationally guarding oil rigs and bases to the US so they can nationally guard the citizens and country.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE TERRORISTS! JIHADS???
Terrorist is such a stupid word, they are actually fighting for a cause they believe in, jihadism. You know, that barbaric way of living tribally and caring for your entire extended family without a global market. Oh well demonize the enemy right? Well the majority of our forces are in iraq and afghanistan and we have a few good reasons to believe that they are in pakistan, so mabye we could just ask pakistan if we can send in a few thousand guys with ground and underground mapping devices (yeah they exist) to find their caves and blow the shit out of them with bombs? I'm sure they wouldn't mind, it's easier and less barbaric than sabotaging and destabilizing their government so we can do whatever the fuck we want to their country and people right?
BUT IF WE CUT FUNDING TO THE MILITARY WE WILL BE AT RISK FOR ATTACK.
Woah now buddy, you know that we have drones, gps, a buttload of boarder security, a buttload of immigration security, product searches when importing TSI screening that can look through your entire body, a new laser that can shoot down missles, bombs that when dropped target heat sources and shoot molten copper onto them as to minimize collateral damage, tanks, helicopters, stealth bombers, nuclear submarines and fighter jets? If somebody is going to attack us, it's going to be from within the system.
SO WE ARE THE ENEMY?
Only a few fundamentalists and radical groups. I would be more afraid of evangelical churches than a bunch of people shitting in buckets in pakistan.
WOW you got off topic there right?
Actually you can't talk about taxes and the government spending without getting on the war topic. Our education, healthcare and social services could improve astronomically and catch up with Europe if we moved money there from the art of killing. '
Sparknotes: Move war money to education and healthcare, bring national guard home to guard the nation, bring most troops home but the ones in pakistan searching for osama, we have enough bombs to blow up the world 5 times and our boarder patrol and import searches as well as TSI screening are going to keep us safe. The biggest threat to the US government is domestic poverty
