We spend more on military spending than the next 8 countries combined. I believe we need a strong military, but we should not be throwing money into a slush fund for policing the world. Instead work with allies, increase efficiencies, spend more on diplomacy, and use technology to drive up performance. You will find that the money is already there. Start with staffing the state department! I can't imagine what you are thinking and wanting to put more money into our military when our infrastructure and our citizens without healthcare will all be suffering. This posturing is ridiculous.
