Kenadid, you ask: "Just answer one question. How would you have paid for the social engineering in Iraq and the nation building in Afghanistan the past ten years, other than by selling US treasury securities to foreign countries like China, Saudi Arabia and Japan that our children will be forced to pay off decades from now?"
Here's you answer, mush-for-brains: We could have paid for both wars by reducing entitlement spending about 5%. Between 2000 and 2010, entitlements accounted for 67% of federal outlays. Both wars combined accounted for about 3% of federal spending. You prove, once again, that liberals can't do math.
