2. People say don't cut military spending, it will hurt the economy.

And to that I say: what could be more hurtful than throwing hundreds of billions of dollars to build weapons systems we don't need and which contribute nothing to society in the long run?

Spend that money on our people, our second greatest national asset (after our lands!)

Hey Department of Defense, you can cut more.
