The military spending figure is bogus. It's made up by lefties who ignore China who, at their present rate will soon have the biggest military in the world. They accept the figures put out by a totalitarian government as fact, just as they did the numbers from the USSR, which were proven to be bogus,

I know China is ADDING dozens of new ICBMs and other missiles every year,along with modernizing their Navy,Air Force,and mechanized forces. They've brought out several new,modern fighters recently,and license-build
Su-27,Su-33 fighters.

2) Many people are becoming so childlike in their dependence on the government that they can't save for their own retirement, escape from an oncoming hurricane, or even purchase their own birth control without the government handling it for them.

3) Our legal system encourages frivolous lawsuits, is punitively expensive...
