The single best thing we could do for our national security is cut defense budget in half

No need for aircraft carriers, $ 1 billion dollar bombers, over paid generals who’ve never seen combat and the GI bill/VA which, is evident when considering its abuse by a certain user on this site is the definition of fraud, waste and abuse.

We spend more than the next 3 countries combined. Our defense budget is listed as over 700 billion dollars for 2021 and this still isnt the whole picture. When we talk of foreign aid it isnt often a case of stroking a check to a foreign country like the media allows us to believe. For instance, we give israel about 5 billion dollars a year in foreign aid, the manner in which this happens is more like a voucher further subsidizing american defense contractors. Essentially they have to use that amount to purchase weaponry from companies like Northrop grumman. Whether or not anyone sides with israel in the middle east conflicts shouldnt sway their opinion that this is okay. Us taxpayers should not be on the hook for the defense spending of our country as well as our allies.
