Ron Paul and Military

I'll say it. We don't need to have half our tax dollars go to weaponry. We'd have to spend less if we weren't trying to take over the world. I get the fact Iraq wasn't just about oil, it was about all the billions in loans to rebuild the country. But do we really need to fatten the pockets of a dozen big hidden corporations? No. Time to pull out and reduce. Spending on military is incredible. The problem we're in now, we've pissed off so many people and have asuch a debt problem that we're stuck. Like an addict we can't stop but expand the military and invade countries for their resources. A bitter cycle that shows no chance of slowing down. After all, our desire for stuff--consumption--is outweighed by our willingness to have less.
