    Less negativity about government, and better suggestive comments about government = better commentators on this site!!

    So-called conservatives LOVE big government. They cheered as GWB’s administration built up the biggest military-security state in history.

    “the biggest military-security state in history.”

    Gary, that is a gross exaggeration.

    I agree, the conservatives really like big government as long as it helps them. They could get immediate agreement to scale back a defense industry that maintains a military that is bigger than the next sixteen countries combined. They keep approving programs that the admirals and generals testify that they don’t want. Quarter billion dollar fighters. it is not like the oil industry is falling on hard times with $5 a gallon gas (much more overseas) The oil industry subsidies could go away tomorrow. The 10,000 page tax code could by dramatically reduced if all the special interest tax loop holes were eliminated. Clearly they love their version of big government. It is the part that actually helps the poor and middle class they want to shoot with their AK-47s.

    “Less government=Better government.”

    Go tell that to the citizens of Somalia. You don’t have to go to Somalia to tell them. You can just come to my city, where there are a lot of immigrants who came here to escape the government-free utopia you yearn for.

    No one can truthfully argue that the US military isn’t the most expensive in modern times. However, before you make your assertion, you have to look at the size, scope, and inflation adjusted price of the historic militaries of Rome, China, and other great civilizations of the past.

    Just watched “the world wars” on the history channel. FDR paid for the New Deal by cutting our military back. Of course, Hitler had other plans, so while we played catch-up, millions were exterminated. You have to keep BOTH eyes open and see the world as it is, not as you would like it.

    You can nitpick what “big” means. I would define “big” (as in “big government”) according to how much effect it can have on people’s lives. Ancient Rome or China weren’t capable of bombing large metropolitan areas to rubble within a matter of hours.

    But if you want to argue that the military machine you support is only the second or third biggest in history, fine. It doesn’t change the fact that it’s big government, and right-wingers love it.

    The biggest U.S. military would have been built by FDR.The Soviet Union had a much larger military.So does China.Where do you think every Jihad Jerk on the planet gets their AK-47’s from?They have found ammo in Afghanistan with head stamps from every former Eastern Block country in Europe,China,and North Korea.In Iraq during the war there, they have captured ammo rockets, and weapons made in Iran and all the above.The U.S. military was downsized after Desert Storm and even more under Clinton.
    When I was in the service the U.S.Army had 12 divisions,the Marine Corps had 3. The Soviets had 120 divisions.The U.S.Army hasn’t had more then 12-15 active divisions at any one time since WWII.The military is downsizing now in case you haven’t been paying attention.And the war ain’t even close to over.The Democrats are quitting like they have before.Which will only make things worse and drag the crap out for decades to come.
    Do a little research.

    You give the Democrats too much credit. My Republican Party has discovered that the easiest people to lead are those who are continually both outraged and terrified.
