Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

When it comes to the war machine...


...who on the RW questions this "government spending"?

No they don't.

Only when it comes to job creation, healthcare, Social Security insurance,...you know...programs that actually help our society do they say, "we can't afford them".

Stating the obvious I know but I had to get it off my chest one more time.

1. That comes from their definition of what the Government is allowed to do

They believe that the Federal Government is only really supposed to protect our borders - all other programs should be privatized as is practical.

3. Yep - and they can do that by securing the borders

and by regulating issues that cover multiple states (in some cases). But in general they want the States to be more powerful, they want the safety net gone, they want everything privatized that can be.

I don't agree with them - just explaining the mentality.
