I will take talk of cutting the military seriously ...



...when they get rid of the for-profit weapon corporations and also promise not to cut the services afforded our men and women who have, and are currently serving.

1. Oh they will cut the military alright.

 

The boots on the ground. With the money saved going into more remote control spying and killing machines.

3. That is where the work comes in. America could cut the military over 60%

of what we spend and we'd STILL have a larger military complex than all other nations armies combined.

4. We could nationalize arms production and have better weapons cheaper...

 

...not to mention severely damaging the power base of some of the most dangerous psychopaths on the earth.

If anyone, anywhere, is going to be killed at a distance by unmanned drones, the people who start wars in order to sell arms to both sides need to be first on the list, wherever in the world they try to hide.
