Ed... what planet are you from? The founding fathers established in the Constitution that the principle responsibility of the Federal GOVMINT is to constitute an Army to protect the Nation against foreign enemies. Practically all other rights they disseminated to the individual citizens and the States. So of course, the military is GOVMINT run. In my 62 years I have only know Democrats to denigrate the military. In my experience the Republican party get bad mouthed for it's support of the military. Also for the record both political parties are corrupt when it comes to Crony Capitalism. This fact gave birth to the Tea Party and a call for smaller GOVMINT.
