It is not enough that the GOP has to always oversee massive expansions of the general government’s budget. It is that when they craft spending bills–with money we do not have–they always find a way to give it to the military even when the purpose of the spending has zero, ziltch, nada to do with the military. The GOP is going to get destroyed this November and part of that reason is going to be because people like me are fed up. I am in their natural constituency group. I am someone who wants less federal government and more individual autonomy. But all I ever get from them is more government, albeit at slightly slower pace that the Dems, and no spending cuts. Yet every two years, they make “balancing the budget” an “issue” for the voters and push all the blame on Democrats. Well their credibility is shot. For those who are not like me, how can they talk about cutting budgets of social programs when they continuously shovel billions into the Pentagon furnace? And for folks like me, shoveling those billions into that furnace means that, even if there were cuts in social programs, that money would likely be shifted to largest welfare program in the history of man: the U.S. military.
