Military is one of those things that we all agree that we should pool our resources and provide for. But, by definition, they are "takers" in a financial sense. There can never be zero takers. The problem is that we have a group of theives in our governments that use our "common good" (like the military) and club us with it. We are victims of our own virtues. Attacking us with our virtues works for con men and liberals (but, I repeat myself).
