Democrats should demand that every Republican who talks about cutting spending. esp. the ones who speak in terms of the Constitution, should have to name a POPULAR program, they'd make serious cuts. If not label them as not serious and a joke.
I vote for big Defense cuts. We should bring home thousands of troops that are stationed whereever we've been at war from Japan to Iraq and elsewhere. We can vigoroudsly defend ourselves and allies for much less money. We should stay on offense as our best protection. The 2001 Afghan attack was good and proper, but then we should have left. Iraq, not so much, but if we chose to do it, get in and out. The United Nations and other weaker countries should do the post war stuff.
So tough on defense for less money!
