13. We spend more on our military than most other nations combined.
And many of those nations provide Medicare-like national health care to all their people.

But somehow we had better not focus on the billions of waste in the military budget, we need to resent the elderly for taking all our money?

Even though social security is self supporting and has a surplus for years to come.

And we also need to forget that we have given billions in tax breaks to giant corporations for the purported purpose of creating lots and lots of jobs for the young and investments in our future.
