The US Military Is the Biggest "Big Government" Entitlement Program on the Planet

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: military, war, violence, defense, government spending )

- 98 days ago -
The US economy is caught in a trap. That trap is the Department of Defense: an increasingly sticky wicket that relies on an annual, trillion-dollar redistribution of government-collected wealth.

The overspending occurs in all those welfare programs that are untouchable. The DoD budget is up for grabs every cycle so it becomes a target and we as a people lose. This kind of post serves no good but bandwagons on a ton of false information from the left. Were it not for the brave souls who wear the uniform we would not be alive to publish such ignorant gibberish. Military folks and their families deserve so much more than we pay or give them. Let's not make them political scapegoats again.

This article is definitely correct. The bloated Pentagon really does not appear to care for the people in uniform, or they would be a top priority instead of the newest, shiniest, most expensive and redundant armaments that they can squander money on. The military-industrial complex is the problem as it has been all along. Signed the petition in March. Thanks Freya.
