haha, freedom of speech my ass.
i think it's a great idea to bring more troops home. what the fuck are the states doing? they've got posts in australia, vietnam.. they're basically surrounding china. how can that fly? what the fuck would the states do if russia decided to fortify canada and mexico, surrounding the US and shit? well, we've seen what they would do. look at cuba..
you can still have a strong defense without being instagators, antagonizing the rest of the world. especially when you burn though so much money on military funding. that guy's got the right idea.
