Rand Paul, the newly elected Republican/libertarian/Tea Party candidate from Kentucky just came out and said what no other Republican will dare say — that in order to balance the budget he would be willing to cut military spending.
It is such an obvious thing, really. We currently spend more money on our military than the rest of the world put together. We spend ten times more than any other country. Has this made us any safer? Has it brought peace and stability to the world?
I’m not a pacifist, but our military budget is way beyond out of control and threatens more harm to our country than our enemies could ever do.
The only question is, will any other Republicans figure this out? Or will they shut him up?
