    Oh, don't bull**** us Tigger. Everyone knows you distort and stretch things until they mean EXACTLY what you want them to mean.

    We'd be a lot better off if there were a lot more McCarthyists in this country.

    Nope. Only reason ANY American ever needs to be outside this country is to undertake war against an enemy of this nation.

    Err you mean inside the borders of the US. Outside it is actually doing something.. inside there is no need for a military.. you got the police no?

    Hence the military INSIDE the US nothing but a social program to keep people off the unemployment lines.

    The actual Q & A is even more damaging that the OP suggests



    Not just who is far too liberal or even socialist leaning.... oh no ..... this question was about as specific as one can be .... CARD CARRYING MARXISTS.

    I once was a member of the Marx Brothers fan club. Would that make me a card carrying Marxist?
    Do they still hand out cards for that?

    NO. The job of the US Military is (or at least should be) to secure the borders of this nation and to maintain readiness to respond to external threats to this nation on a moment's notice. The US Border Patrol is a social program because it's duplicating the work the US Military SHOULD be doing.

    Like how support of government run programs means you support a violent revolution and the establishment of a classless and stateless society?

    So you want to bar travel to foreign nations and restrict international trade? Your rampant authoritarian tendencies give you far more in common with actual communists than those you accuse.

    Just because our country commonly deploys its troops to other nations doesn't mean that is what a military is suppose to do. I am actually with Tigger on this one. I believe our military should remain as our shield, not our sword. We should have them within our borders. A strong military is a deterrent to invasion, and should not be used to invade sovereign nations in order to promote our political objectives.

    I would even go as far to say that the Democratic Party's Mantra of using political power instead of military power to resolve differences outside our borders is correct.
