Indeed. The only reasonable way to do it right now would be to redirect defense production into some other public purpose. There are lots of choices, but just cutting support would dramatically increase an already disastrously high level of unemployment. Unfortunately, such a policy would not fit into a libertarian or deficit hawk framework.
No. You all are laying the groundwork for a communist government with argument like this. And, overall, that government won't work. Especially if it creates so much wasteful spending that it can't cut that it is forced to create more money to cover its liabilities and devalue the dollar. It seems if that happens then everyone is kind of screwed, even those that aren't benefitting from the wasteful spending.
Maybe cutting everything tomorrow is a bad idea. Sure, but at some point the financial policies the country has adopted need to be discussed. I'll never be convinced that if we do nothign but continue to run a 1.5 trillion dollar deficit every year America will be okay.
Yeah, cuz you and Jenny just didn't have it. Me and Jenny. We got it. I can unlock her defense with a well-timed through ball and a towering header.
