    But, if you tell your Congressman to implement this latest one...without first cutting spending...then you, sir, are part of the problem and you really have no business talking.
    I'm not asking for anymore spending increases, I want massive cuts, especially in overseas spending. My primary opposition in this regard are neo-cons, who are the real problem on the right.

    Standing Armies even on our soil have no basis in the constitution, but I'm talking about the standing armies that say, have been in Korea since the 50's with no end in sight.

    We are no stronger for them being there.

    Defense spending is only 20% of the budget. I have no problem cutting it, but why start with a critical efficient function? There no point discussing defense when any cuts wouldnt make a dent in the deficit.

    Why do you think that? How familiar are you with the various projects funded and their feasibility? Are you an engineer? Can you give any specific examples?

    Or is this just armchair quarterbacking by someone who hasn't even turned on the television?

    It doesn't take an engineer to determine feasibility. It takes an economist. And when billions are spent by government for research, another $7500 or $10000/unit in buyers subsidies, and .60/gallon subsidy to render something profitable. The product is not economically feasible

    Sigh, another personal attack instead of a rebuttal. Moving on.
