5. Threats to American safety are real.......
regardless if you want to believe it or not. That has been proven numerous times throughout history. Those that wish to do us harm are actively seeking nuclear material to use against us. At this time, I believe we are to strong for a flat out conventional war, on American soil, with missiles and troops from another nation. The biggest threat are from terrorists that wish to make a dirty bomb and set it off in an American city. That does not mean we should not plan for the future though. China and Russia are becoming more and more aggressive everyday. One day, they could decide to team up and fight a war with us. A missile defense system would be very useful in that situation and I believe is much needed. Plus, think of all the jobs it will create, with benefits no less. Then there would be no need for a government run option, that will no doubt turn into a disaster, just like in every other country that has tried it.
