Wow, I've never been accused of being an Obama supporter before. It's rather odd. Let's just put it this way; I would rather have had Sarah Palin as POTUS than Obama or McCain. He has absolutely no leadership ability, talks out of both sides of his face at once. Suffice it to say, Obama does the exact same thing. Both of them trample all over the constitution. And McCain isn't even POTUS. Could you imagine how much worse he would do it if he were? He would be on par with Obama.
Have to remember, NDAA was written by McCain. Neither choice was good, we just happened to have picked the one that screws things up in the way that bother you more.
Actually, you are completely wrong. We don't have the largest military in the world at all. Not even close. We spend more than the next 27 countries combined, 26 of which are our allies. What's not being taken into account in that figure is the difference in cost for a chinese soldier and an American. The Chinese have roughly 2,285,000 active duty, while the US has 1,458,219 active duty. We just happen to be at war, so our spending is higher. That's just common sense. The only way we can cut the spending is to bring out people home. Then we could cut spending in half, until the next time our military is sent out. Then spending will go right back up. Common sense, use some.
