    Not at all. All government employees (including the military) are overhead on the economy, but some of that overhead - especially the military (along with fire and police protection) - is necessary, and that is not wealth redistribution since those folks perform a necessary service. Wealth redistribution, Obama style, is taking money from people who earn it in order to enable (and buy the votes of) Peggy The Moocher and her ilk.

    "And just imagine if a new government can get production in a few years time not to pre-war levels of 1.6 million barrels a day, but back to the first years of the Gaddafi era. Output back then, according to energy strategist Mills, was over three million barrels a day."

    But, to play devils advocate, the military's interest has not always been the citizens of the United States.
