We have seen that military expenditures of the U.S. are more than the rest of the entire world.
We have also seen that such expenditures are in fact entitlements, as in welfare.
The great general who also knew how to be Commander In Chief, as well as head of budget concerns, has said that when the military entitlements get out of hand, the military is in effect sacrificing the common people on an iron cross.
The common people can do damage too, if they take too much by becoming non-productive or by getting into a welfare only ideology.
Some lines have to be drawn so as to be able to measure where the fair boundary might be.
We spend more on the military than the other nations of the world combined, so perhaps if we brought it down to half that, such a line in the sand would make more sense, even though even at that level it is still a bloated military budget.
Thus, the common welfare requires a fair military and a fair populace who share the wealth of the nation in a manner that does not do damage to the nation.
The democrats, it seems to me, have brought on a flanking manoeuvre by passing the Health Care Reform legislation.
They knew they could not take on military (MOMCOM) entitlements directly, because the populace has been filled with fear by MOMCOM security propaganda about the monsters under their beds.
So the democrats seem to have done a flanking motion going around and behind the propaganda.
Even if Health Care Legislation is flawed, still it signals a change in direction from mindless, endless warfare that saps the nation of its strength, toward a kinder and gentler nation that actually has compassion and other normal humane considerations for its own.
Good move democrats.
