Has anyone proposed fixing deficit by funding defense like Social Security? [View all]

since defense is such a big cost, give it its own separate tax and make it pay as you go. If a war is planned in the future or erupts unexpectedly (the latter is a very rare occurrence if you're the world's only superpower) then that tax rate should be adjusted accordingly.

That is the minimum that should be done.

I wonder how much we would spend on defense then and how many wars we would get into.
