I want govt spending and intervention substantially reduced in domestic and military affairs.
I spent 20 years in the Navy. My wife served for 28, and now works for CENTCOM as a civilian contractor. The amount of waste in military spending is staggering. And not only that, but everything we do militarily has unintended consequences that are often worse than the evil we are attempting to destroy - as Pat highlights twice a week.
After 9-11, we should have wreaked havoc on Al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan for a year, and then left with a message: Mess with us again, and we'll return for more of the same.Leave us be, and we will do likewise. No nation-building. No crusading for democracy.
