Response to Purveyor (Original post)

4. How about we cut the defense budget and improve the economy?

How about we stop sending money overseas?

Let's close bases in Japan, Germany, South Korea, and many more. We can stop supporting those countries' economies, bring the troops home and let them spend their wages in this country not abroad. That will save us money and boost our economy, not damage it. We don't need to cut troops immediately, we can do it through attrition.
