I'm guessing you don't actually know how much of federal expenditures is defense related. We could eliminate defense spending altogether and still be running a huge deficit. It's no longer the GOP, as much as you'd like to believe it. I suspect you also think that the GOP is responsible for the Obama administration never having passed a budget. It appears that ALL spending by the Obama administration is off budget (a favorite lefty screed about the "Bush wars"), because there isn't one. Maybe the first step toward fiscal sanity would be creating an actual budget. This bunch of Obama clowns has even less of a clue than the GOP. By far.
