The High Cost of Liberalism: Part II

In case you all haven't noticed, we are going through a period of Military sequestration. That means we are reducing our forces to the point where most of us wonder whether we can even defend our country against one enemy let alone two. Before we entered WWII, we elected to increase our armed forces. War games were held. Soldiers were carrying broom sticks instead of guns. Trucks carried signs on them saying "tank". We had no equipment nor could we have gone into battle during that period. Fortunately for us, we were far enough away from the conflict in "splendid isolation" and could begin to rebuild our forces without interference. That cannot happen today. We live in a much smaller world than existed in the late 1930s. Conflict, which during that period would have been months away, is now only minutes from our doorstep. Don't listen to the liberal mantra that our military is costing us too much money. Granted, there are areas of waste that need to be addressed. By my reckoning, the military is no worse than the civilian side in waste and certainly not near as bad as the bribery and corruption found on the bureaucratic side of government. In fact, the per cent of GNP allocated to our national defense is close to that which we had in the 30s. That should scare the hell out of all of us. Draw your own conclusions. We hide our heads in the sand in "times of peace" under liberal rules and scramble to recover when faced with adversity. Next time, we will not have that the option or time to scramble. We can never and should never assume that we are ever truly at peace with the world. I. for one, still firmly believe in the deterrence policies we have advocated in past years.

Does anyone agree that perhaps we have given the right to vote to people who don't deserve it? Ignorance, apathy and freeloaders are killing this nation.

Don't quite understand your last sentence, Would you rather I vote for a Democrat who is definitely aligned with Obama's active quest to destroy your freedoms and make you a dependent of the government? State sovereignty is just about totally gone.

Those in the free market actually produce a product. What bureaucrat has ever produced anything but new ways to perpetuate their jobs?
