    LOL Are you forgetting the cardinal rule? "If the President wants it, it must be bad. Even if we used to support it it is bad now."

    The funding for military operations past two years is not done in bulk, but rather within the two year window a new appropriation is passed.

    I know how we conveniently got past the original intent of those limitations.

    sickening to see libertarians play the game however.

    That's true if direct exchange of money is your only measuring stick.

    Its a valid argument to disagree with how congress goes about defending the country. Congress calls its military and defense, you call it police. Its also valid to argue infrastructure is essential to security (prosperity isnt in the constitution though). However, trying to directly connect a bridge in montana or an internet cable in wyomning as essential to national security is a stretch. An aircraft carrier or a military base is not. Which is why defense spending typically falls under defense, and infrastructure doesnt.

    And its not about whats in our interests (as decided by the govt). Its about what is legally authorized, and creating prosperity is not. THe purpose of the USA is to protect lives and property and to ensure liberty and justice. Prosperity naturally flows through that, but its not the govt jobs to make it.
