1. I have a better idea.
CUT the fucking military until they are crying actual tears.

Those tears would be an accurate gauge of the level of cuts I would recommend. There is simply no justification for the size and mission of the U.S. military.

Practically any public works project would be a better stimulus return on the dollar than military spending.

The real threat to the security of the American people comes from inside the country in the form of politicians that want to cut "entitlements". Social security and medicare are real security, not faked up Dubya Bush Iraq War style security.

If we really don't want terrorism how about we get the fuck out of "their" countries. But actually we do want terrorism. Otherwise their is no justification for the ridiculous level of military spending.
