Sounds like conservatives would rather continue enriching the bloated military industry through government largesse and instead impoverish the middle and lower classes in their old age, gut the education system that has provided the prosperity we all enjoy, and let the poor die in the streets from disease and injury. This is their solution to the budget problems. Completely unsurprising, as I stated earlier. You do realize that when we become less prosperous through all this kind of stupidity that we will then have to cut the military budget after all, right? Or that the rich will be forced to pay a hugely progressive tax in order to support it?

You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
"How was this possible", you say?
Because their defense was weak, they were conquered by superior technology.
They could have been exterminated if it were the will of the superior force.
I can't understand those who think that fate couldn't befall us if we do not keep our edge.
"Those who forget the past are destined to repeat it"
Those who would weaken this country by cutting military strength so we can have healthcare for illegal immigrants are traitors.
