Actually, it would be the same responsibility, because it would remove Medicare and Medicaid and replace it with something else. It would not be an add-on, what I propose, like what is going to get voted on in the Senate today.Yes, let's send more budgeting responsibility to the Federal Level.
F-22s and a bunch of aircraft carriers don't protect our freedoms. China isn't going to invade us. Russia isn't going to invade us. Nobody is going to invade us. We have enough firepower with our F-15s, F-16s, and F-18s. We have thousands of Abrams tanks. We have hundreds of helicopters. We have plenty to defend ourselves.Oh! Excellent idea, let's cut funding to the one part of the Government that physically ensures the safety of our Freedoms! Because laws in books and international conventions/agreements, like the U.N. can do all that for us.
Aircraft carriers are offensive weapons. They are not meant to protect our freedoms. They are meant to force other countries to bend to our will.
They are meant to take freedom away (from other people).
You get the idea, right?
