Not a Chicken-hawk

Come home from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Close overseas bases.

No more undeclared unconstitutional wars.

Stop propping up dictators and meddling in the internal affairs of other nations.


That way lies madness and a new Dark Age.

True, you can fund a nice comfortable national retirement on the proceeds of managing decline - as Britain found when it traded in its Empire for a Welfare State. It lasts for a generation or two but the end result isn't pretty. (Not to mention that the UK had the USA to hurl the torch to as it fell. After America, there's no one left).

[All of which is not to say that there isn't room for improvement in the WAY the Defense budget is spent, but its overall level is, if anything, too low].
