That's all well and good.

But the biggest issue with cutting defense is that the Congress (not the President) loves defense spending. It's the red white and blue, flag-waving patriotic form of government spending, and it's especially popular with the Republican Party. From where I sit, a lot of military basing and defense spending ends up looking like Red State Welfare.

nice.
