Whatddya mean we cannot affor it? This sequestration is the equivalent of mothballing aircraft carriers while maintaining battleships and shutting down shipyards. One attack and no more US Navy forever. (I get the impression that is what some Obamaroids want, so do some Paulistas and most Rockwellians.) Proper financing can be had by reserving certain revenues SOLELY for military, VA, State DEpt, Intelligence agencies and foreign aid purposes and keeping all other grasping hands at bay. Plus restrict issuance of government bonds to paying for delivery of goods and capitilizing corrective programs. It is not difficult.
On his recent trip abroad, Mitt Romney observed an American taboo by not criticizing President Obama's military policy. But before his trip, he made his position clear. Obama has "exposed the military to cuts that no one can justify," Romney said.

He meant that unless Congress intervenes, Pentagon spending will be cut by more than $500 billion over 10 years under the (bipartisan) budget sequestration scheduled for January. This terrifies those who fear that limiting the growth of the military-industrial complex will leave us less safe.

But is that true? Even if $500 billion is actually cut, America still will spend...
