I think everyone pretty well knows my politics. I believe we are here to help everyone we can, and we should all pay our share.
The main issue now is our country is broke.
Today I heard the CIA has been secretly helping opposition in Syria since 2003 (courtesy of Wikileaks). We still have tens of thousands of troops in Germany (war ended in 1945), tens of thousands in Japan and about 15 other countries. And we are muddled down in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We can’t be the world’s police anymore; I thought that was why the United Nations was formed over 60 years ago.
Our people can’t get work; yet we spent almost a billion in a few days bombing Lybia; our social and educational programs are being sliced, yet we spend 1/2 billion on a fighter plane.
The threat from major nations is not the same; we have to guard against terrorists here in the US and not create more by helping unpopular governments.
Get our military home, let them spend the money in the US and help when they are needed here.
Our credit rating is about to disappear, our population has no money or employment……We need radical action now!
